Maidana Disputes Allegations of Cheating With Broner

By Elisinio Castillo

WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana is annoyed with the post-fight allegations that he cheated during last Saturday's huge upset decision over previously undefeated Adrien Broner at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Between the eleventh and twelfth rounds, it is being alleged that his strength and conditioning coach, Alex Ariza, slipped something illegal to him in a napkin.

Several videos have been created with enhanced images of the corner work by Ariza, but none of them clearly indicate that anything illegal took place. Numerous claims have been flying around, from illegal pills to smelling salts, but Ariza says it was nothing more than rolled up gauze.

Maidana shook his head at the claims.

"It was nothing. Nothing of what they're talking about happened," Maidana made clear to local reporters in Argentina.

Regarding his future, Maidana would like to get a crack at WBC welterweight king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"Nothing about my future has been discussed. I'm going to take a break, relax and spend time with my family. If the fight with Mayweather is presented, I would like to get that fight," Maidana said.

Of course it is always possible something like that could happen, it doesn't take away from the fact Maidana beat Broners ass throughout the fight.
