Maidana Confident of Exploiting Adrien Broner's Flaws

Big-hitting Marcos Maidana is determined to knockout brash-talking Adrien Broner when the pair clash in Texas this weekend.

The Argentine assassin, who is famed for his ferocious knockout power having put 31 of his 37 opponents to sleep, is extremely confident he can add the name of Broner to that list on Saturday night in San Antonio.

Despite being regarded as the heir apparent to Floyd Mayweather's throne, Maidana is in no doubt that Broner is a false pretender to that title and has been keen to show him why, ever since both men locked horns during the Shawn Porter and Julio Diaz card in September.

"I really wanted to beat and knock him out, even at that stage. The fight was not yet agreed when the incident happened in Las Vegas," said Maidana.

"But after the incident, I'll tell you the truth, it really lightened me up and it was a motivation for me, because I'm not used to fights, or getting into arguments, or coming to blows with fellow fighters ... but this guy has something special.

"He's a provocative character, so it really gave me motivation to focus more on my training - training harder - and I just want for Saturday to be now."

The 30-year-old bruiser - who now trains out of Robert Garcia's gym in Oxnard, California - is adamant that he will give Broner his toughest test at welterweight after he moved up to face Paulie Malignaggi earlier this year, winning the WBA belt on a split decision.

"Adrien is now an established welterweight - no doubt about it. But the only problem is he's not been tested by a natural welter like me - that's why this is the hardest fight of his life," said Maidana.

'El Chino' has seen flaws in Broner which he believes he can exploit.

"I've been watching tapes of him of course like I always do through my preparation and it's a tough fight. It's a tough fight for both of us," he said.

"Of course, he is a great fighter, but makes mistakes. I won't tell you what mistakes I'm talking about, but you will see it on Saturday. I'm very confident. I had a great preparation for this fight, and you'll see me on Saturday."

Can't wait for this weekends card.Personally I think AB will have too much For Chino.The hand speed,the power and the fact that Broner is still very strong at his third weight class but Maidana can never be ruled dude is…

Cano was able to knockdown Paulie and Broner could not...interesting. We'll see how AB handles someone with actual power since he does get hit.

[QUOTE=nickphilli;14019521]Some of you are crazy. The fact that you even compare Broner to Mayweather is just ridiculous. Broner's defense is average at best, he's extremely flatfooted, his speed is good, power is untested at welterweight(Paulie said Cano hits harder) he…
