Garcia: Maidana's Style Can Give Broner Problems

By Salvador Rodriguez

Trainer Robert Garcia likes Marcos Maidana's chances to derail undefeated WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 24KOs). Maidana (34-3, 31KOs) is potentially going to face Broner on November 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Maidana, one of the hardest punchers in boxing, has been at welterweight for his last four fights. Broner moved up by two divisions, from 135 to 147, in June when he displayed some struggles in winning a twelve round split decision over Paulie Maliganggi to win the WBA belt.

"Broner is in his moment. He is young and talented, but he is not another Mayweather. However much that we think that he is, he is not [Mayweather]. Maidana's style can give him a lot of problems. We'll prepare for a war. Maidana punches hard, has heart and won't show any respect - and these things are very important against an opponent [like Broner]. He has the qualities [to beat Broner]," Garcia said.

Malignaggi beat Broner 7-5 8-4 he outlanded him most of the rounds and outworked him almost every round. Maidana may beat broner but it wont be as easy as people think people underrate Malignaggi

Boner couldn't dominate Paulie Mags, he couldn't hurt Mags. Boner has no shot at surviving Marcos Maidana. Not sure why Boner is stalling; Maidana told him to shut his mouth and sign to fight, two months ago!
