Broner vs. Maidana: Showtime Wants To Get it Done

By Salvador Rodriguez

The Vice President of Showtime, Stephen Espinoza, would love to have Adrien Broner (27-0, 22KOs) defend his WBA welterweight title against Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31KOs) in the fall. Broner captured the title last month with a split decision over Paulie Malignaggi in New York City. The match draw a very high 1.3 million viewers on Showtime.

Following last month's fight, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, who promotes both Broner and Maidana, said he was ready and willing to make a match between his two fighters, but he won't start the negotiations until Broner indicates that he plans to remain at 147-pounds. Broner, still the WBC champion at 135, moved up by two divisions for Malignaggi. He might remain at 147 or go down to 140-pounds.

If Golden Boy can get the fight done, Espinoza would like to place on a Showtime date at the end of the year.

"It's a fight that we like, and [if Golden Boy can get it done, then] maybe it could happen in November or December of this year," Espinoza said.

I wonder if Broner would try the Trash talking and bad Sportsmanship with Chino?. would be funny seeing him try as Maidana doesn't give a f uck.

[QUOTE=apokalips;13534714]This has to be the top option for Broner. After that I wouldn't be surprised to see Khan go after Broner to "prove he can beat Mayweathers style". Either way there are some good fights to be made at 140-147…

This has to be the top option for Broner. After that I wouldn't be surprised to see Khan go after Broner to "prove he can beat Mayweathers style". Either way there are some good fights to be made at 140-147…

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;13534303]They had better keep Broner far far away from Maidana.[/QUOTE] On the contrary. :lol1: They need to throw him in the ring with EL CHINO asap. I want to see if Broner has the minerals to go toe to toe…
