McCory: Maidana Showed How To Solve Broner Problem

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former world champion and Sky Sports commentator Glenn McCrory has no idea which direction Adrien Broner will take after suffering his second career defeat on June 20th, via twelve round decision, to Shawn Porter at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The former three division champion suffered his first career defeat in December of 2013, when he faced Marcos Maidana in the ring. Broner was the favorite, but Maidana came out swinging, scored two knockdowns in the contest, and applied pressure all night long.

Broner, who was welterweight champion at the time of the Maidana defeat, dropped down to 140-pounds. The fight with Porter took place at a catch-weight of 144.

"I’m not sure where he goes. One thing is for sure, Broner calls himself ‘The Problem’ and that ‘Problem’ has been well and truly solved. Marcos Maidana showed everybody what you have to do. You just got to be aggressive and put the pressure on him and he doesn’t want it," McCory told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"I think he’s a fighter now that as you say in the game is a bit gun shy. He’s lost his confidence and when you throw rapid combinations, he throws one punch and then he has to grab. When fighters get like that, that’s because they’re scared of the retaliation, they’re scared of something coming back at them.

"Broner got one little bit of credibility but other than that, there’s not much credibility left in Adrien Broner. He does make matters worse for himself with his distasteful comments, so he really is a person who when things aren’t going good for him and he looks around for people to help him, there’s gonna be nobody there. There’s gonna be nobody wanting to give Adrien Broner a hand up and that’s everything he deserves, he’s a three weight world champion and he’s only 25 years of age."

[QUOTE=rocktx;15840441]I don't believe Maidana solved any "Problem" or gave any blueprint to beat Broner. Fact is he's not that good overall. He just has a few strengths that the casual fan likes. In the end, there are probably several ways…

Maidana made the punk look like a bag of dying death

Quintero and Ponce de Leon solved this problem way before Maidana. And Broner hadn't recently jumped two weight classes when he fought them.
