Marcos Maidana overpowered Adrien Broner to win the WBA welterweight title in San Antonio on Saturday night.
The Argentinian knocked Broner down twice before winning by unanimous decision – 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109.
Broner, who suffered his first loss in 28 bouts, ran out of the ring after the scores were announced.

"I had to show a lot of heart to win this fight," Maidana said. "I did what I had to do to win. Broner is a very good puncher," Maidana said. "He's a very good boxer, very good puncher. Yes, I felt his blows."
