Maidana: Broner Stronger, Hits Hard Than Mayweather

Marcos Maidana is on a short list of fighters who have been able to give boxing’s pound for pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather a tough and competitive fight in the ring. He’s also on an even shorter list as he’s only the 2nd fighter to get a rematch against Mayweather with the other fighter being Jose Luis Castillo twelve years ago.

Part of the reason there was a demand for a fight with Mayweather and Maidana in the first place was due to Maidana upsetting Adrien Broner last year. Many have compared Broner to Mayweather as both use a shoulder roll defense and have similar personas outside the ring.

There’s probably nobody better than Maidana who can give a good assessment and comparison of both fighters as he’s the only one to have fought both.

After a strong training session in Oxnard, CA at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy, Maidana was asked who he felt hit harder between Mayweather and Broner.

“I think Broner is stronger than Mayweather and hits harder. But what I know is that Mayweather is more elastic, he can move better. I think Broner also felt physically stronger,” Maidana would tell BoxingScene.

Maidana’s aggressive whirlwind attack befuddled Broner as he was knocked down twice in the fight and took some big shots for his troubles. The same aggressive style was also used by Maidana against Floyd and while he found some success, Floyd was able to adapt better and pull out a victory.

While Mayweather and Broner may appear similar to the eye, Maidana says he sees only one real similarity between both his past opponents.

“I think in some aspects, the way they are is the same. But up in the ring, the only thing they do the same is their defensive guard. Broner comes forward to attack and Mayweather moves and runs around” said Maidana.

Maidana will get a rare mulligan against Mayweather and will try to be the first fighter to hand Floyd a loss.

Mayweather also wears softer gloves to protect his hands.

[QUOTE=theboxingguru]Think about this, relies on movement and skills more than any boxer. Maidana said Broner was strong because he was able to push him off etcc. Well Floyd will maneuver to get a guy off of him. As for punching power, Broner is a power punched, Floyd is a counterpuncher who uses...

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]This is likely true. He's bigger than Floyd and seems to have more pop. Floyd is really not that strong. His strength is so overrated these days.[/QUOTE] Think about this, relies on movement and skills more than any boxer. Maidana said Broner was strong because he was...
