On June 22, Broner will move up by two weight divisions to challenge WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7KOs). Maidana is highly ranked, at #2 by the WBA, and holds the WBA Continental title at 147.
Following last Saturday's TKO victory over Josesito Lopez at the Home Depot Center, Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer said he was very interested in matching Maidana against the winner of Broner-Malignaggi later in the year.

If the best fight for Adrien Broner after this fight is Maidana then Maidana will get it," Broner said.

[QUOTE=Syf;13473405] Maidana is maidana.. as Broner says. Broner knows the deal. He knows Maidana is a straight gangster in the ring. I can't name one fighter in his career that would prepare him for Maidana. He fights all smaller or…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (42)
