Marcos Maidana: Broner is Stronger Than Mayweather

by Elisinio Castillo

WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31KOs) views Adrien Broner as a physically stronger fighter than Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs), the WBC champion at 147. Their unification takes place on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Broner was being pushed as the second coming of Mayweather. The two fighters are close friends. The push of Broner hit an Argentine brick wall when Maidana dropped him twice and won a twelve round unanimous decision to capture Broner's WBA title at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

"I am going to train well, I am going to go out there and fight without fear and without respecting him. There are many boxers that when they are in the ring with Floyd, they are afraid. He is not going to intimidate me. I want to beat him. Canelo Álvarez did not go after him. He didn't do anything and allowed [Mayweather] to work. I always go out to press my rival, to corner him and to unload my punches, and with Mayweather I am going to do the same," Maidana said.

"I believe that Mayweather is not as strong as Broner. He is a better boxer [than Broner] but I think that he is not as strong. I believe that, because [during our fight] Broner felt very strong and I do not see Mayweather being [strong] like that. Also, Mayweather often goes against the ropes and that's where he's in danger [of getting hit with punches]."

[QUOTE=Syf;14363567]You put Ghost ahead of Maidana, why? And Bradley was an "A" fighter in your other post now he's a "B"? Your grading system is not only worthless... its not even consistent.[/QUOTE] GOD-FR33 is a c level poster.
