Broner Says He 'Can't Wait To Fight Maidana Again'

By Keith Idec

Adrien Broner indicated on a conference call Tuesday that he’ll pursue a rematch against Marcos Maidana after he fights John Molina.

Cincinnati’s Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) and Molina (27-5, 22 KOs), of Covina, Calif., are scheduled to square off March 7 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Their 12-round junior welterweight bout will be the first fight televised as part of Al Haymon’s new Premier Boxing Champions series on NBC.

Broner is about a 9-1 favorite over Molina, who lost his last two bouts, but would be an underdog against Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs). The heavy-handed Argentine boxer beat Broner by unanimous decision 13 months ago in San Antonio, where Maidana dropped Broner twice.

“After the Saturday night he beat me, I tried to fight him on Sunday,” Broner said regarding their bout in December 2013. “I can’t wait to fight Maidana again, but the guy I’ve got to fight is John Molina. So I’m going to handle my business and worry about a Maidana rematch next.”

I respect AB for calling out Maidana. But 147 is not a good place for AB to be. He should stay at 140.
