Maidana: Broner is No Mayweather, He Can Be Hit!

By Luis Sandoval

With his proposed fight with Adrien Broner a little under 2 months away, Marcos “Chino” Maidana has already been training for 3 weeks in Oxnard with trainer Robert Garcia. Maidana will try to capture his first world title in the Welterweight division and hand Broner his first loss in the process when they face off December 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.

Broner is one of boxing’s fastest rising stars and has already secured three world titles in three different weight classes. He even jumped up two weight classes to capture the same title he will be defending against Maidana when he beat Paulie Malignaggi this past June.

Despite his current accomplishments, Maidana feels Broner still has not fought enough top level competition to prepare for the best fighters.

“I think he’s a good fighter. A very good boxer. Good counterpuncher and fast. But I don’t think he’s fought enough to fight a hard fight. I think, and maybe I’m mistaken, I think he still needs more to be able to fight the better and bigger fighters” Maidana would tell BoxingScene after a hard workout.

Given his comments, Maidana was asked if he felt he’d be Broner’s first true test of his career.

“Yes, [yes I am]. If he wants to beat me he’s going to have to work really hard and I’m going to give him the first test for his career. I’m here training for 2-3 months and when I fight, I come fully prepared to give it my all and ready to go” said Maidana.

In his fight against Malignaggi, Broner didn’t exactly look his best even though he was victorious. Maidana watched their fight and feels Malignaggi simply didn’t hit hard enough and also mentioned that Broner isn’t all that hard to hit.

“What I saw is that Malignaggi isn’t strong. He did hit Broner with punches but they weren’t hard enough to be able to knock him out or for Broner to feel them. With Broner you can definitely hit him. He’s not Mayweather. But we’ll see how he comes out for this fight because I do think he’ll prepare very good and he’ll study me well so he’ll have a good strategy” shared the hard hitting Argentine.

Maidana looked strong during his workout and his sledgehammer right hand was on display as he punished the heavy bag. He will be putting that right hand to good use on December 14th when he will try to give Broner the biggest test of his career.

[QUOTE=Frank Ducketts;13869801]Broner has never been hit flush which is a testament to his defense. Maidana will hit him and we will find out of Broner has a chin.[/QUOTE] Having Rees hit him flush.. He's a midget!

[QUOTE=PBP;13869776]Maidana better not prepare for a stationary, flat footed fighter that will be in the pocket all night. I expect to see a version of Broner that we haven't seen before. He has fought in the pocket because his opponents…

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;13881500]Sure, if Paulie was the (only) fighter that laid leather on the guy. Little English chap did, PDL, hell ever fighter he's faced has. The difference between them all and Maidana is real power and compatible size.[/QUOTE] I bet broner…

[QUOTE=Doctor_Tenma;13873098]Way too much is an exaggeration. Malignaggi may have gotten off punches but Paulie is a straight shooter with very good hand speed, Maidana is the opposite of that, can get wide and doesn't possess the kind of speed that…
