Marcos Maidana: Broner's Mouth Can't Fight For Him!
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Adrien Broner has been eating lots of ice cream, admiring himself on TV, and spending quality time with friends and family.

He has also been preparing for the first defense of his WBA welterweight title.

Broner faces former WBA junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana in San Antonio’s Alamadome on Saturday night.

If it seems like Broner is treating Maidana like an afterthought, at least publicly.

"I'm undefeated, 27-0, 22 knockouts, three-time world champion in three different weight classes; I did that at 23," Broner said om Friday.

"At 24, I will be a four-time world champion in four different weight classes. We've just got to get this stepping stone out of the way."

Ring magazine rates Broner as sixth best boxer, pound-for-pound, in the world. His speed, power, counter-punching and flamboyancy have drawn comparisons to his mentor, Floyd Mayweather, and led to a meteoric rise after only five years as a professional.

Broner says Maidana has as much chance of beating him as he does of getting the last word in. "I really ain't got much to say about my opponent," Broner said. "We're here to talk about Adrien Broner."

The dismissal is fine with Maidana, who held his right hand like a cocked gun that he pointed at Broner's head during the final press conference on Thursday.

"Everyone knows Broner has a big mouth," Maidana said earlier. "But that doesn't bother me, because his mouth can't fight for him. Whether he has the guts to stand in front of me, or if he runs, I'll go for the KO. Either way, I'm leaving the ring with the belt."

Broner said he had eaten more ice cream preparing for this fight than in any training camp, he did let his guard down away from the glut of television cameras he revels in.

"I'm not going to lie, this is the biggest fight of my career," he said. "[Maidana] is going to try to come fight me; he's going to try to break my neck, so I'm ready, man, I'm focused."

The American is realistic because he knows every fighter has a "puncher's chance," and the aggressive Maidana is definitely a puncher.

After losing two of four matches, the Argentinian has won his last three bouts by KO or TKO to earn this title match.

In his previous bout, Maidana landed 56 percent of his power punches in stopping Josesito Lopez in the sixth round on June 8. After knocking Lopez down with an overhand right, he followed with a crushing right uppercut that forced a stoppage.

"I don't really think Broner has fought a puncher like Maidana yet," WBA interim welterweight champion Keith Thurman said. "This might be the best puncher that he's come up against."

[QUOTE=ddangerous]If this fight ends in a KO, it won't be from Broner. Maidana has a solid chin and Broner never remotely hurt Paulie when they fought. Broner did not carry his power to 147, and Maidana is not even a little intimidated by him and will bring the fight to him. 50/50 fight.[/QUOTE] ...

[QUOTE=Beto El Lobo]Don't be surprised if he challenges Carlos Molina !![/QUOTE] Canelo is gonna have first dibs on Molina. But if he doesn't fight him. I think that's gonna be AB's next move.
