Former three division champion Adrien "The Problem" Broner (30-1, 22 KOs) is eager to avenge the only defeat of his career, a December 2012 twelve round decision loss to Marcos Maidana (35-5, 31KOs). Broner was dropped twice in the contest and took punishment during periods of the fight.
Broner has won three fights in a row and on June 20th he goes up against former welterweight champ "Showtime" Shawn Porter (25-1-1, 16 KOs) in a fight that headlines the upcoming Premier Boxing Champions on NBC primetime event.
After his win over Broner, Maidana went on to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in twice in 2014 - losing both battles by decision.
Maidana is currently taking some time off and there is a good possibility that he may not even fight in 2015. In a few interviews after the Mayweather rematch, Maidana said he was not interested in facing Broner in a rematch.
Broner still wants the rematch, but feels a second fight with Maidana is not a necessity for his career.
"I don't know if you heard [Maidana] or not, but he don't want to fight me again. I'm not really worried about him even if I fight him again or not. I don't need Maidana for my career. After that fight my name got bigger, my name is still growing," Broner said.
