Rios picks Maidana to beat Broner

maidana32434Brandon Rios is picking #2 WBA to defeat WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) in their pay-per-view fight on Showtime on December 14th at the MGM Grand, Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Rios thinks that Broner isn’t unhittable like Floyd Mayweather Jr., and he likes the power that Maidana has after sparring 10 rounds with him. Rios says the sparring with Maidana was pretty brutal.

Rios told esnewsreporting.com “I think it’s going to be a tough fight, but I think he [Maidana] can pull it off. Broner showed [against Paulie Malignaggi] that he can be hit. He’s not like Mayweather. When Maidana cracks, he cracks hard.” Continue reading

Broner targeting Maidana and Matthysse

broner55It’s been thought that WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) will give up his newly won World Boxing Association 147 lb. title without defending it rather than facing the likes of Marcos Maidana and Keith Thurman. Broner, however, is now saying he wants to fight Maidana and then Lucas Matthysse after that. There’s no word from Broner about whether he’ll bother defending his title against WBA interim welterweight champion Keith Thurman, who has already said he wants to fight Broner next.

Broner said this about Maidana and Matthysse on Thursday on his social media site: You a damn fool if you think Chino Maidana can beat me. LOL! And when I’m done with this b**ch Chino Maidana, I’m go f*** Matthysse up. Easy money.”

I like how Broner throws in one of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s “easy money” comments, because that’s something that Mayweather Jr. says all the time.

If Broner is serious about wanting to face Maidana and Matthysse in back to back fights, he may not be the WBA champion for long. Continue reading

Boxing ain’t dead, not by a long shot

‘Boxing is dead’ is a term I read, and heard, frequently in recent years. If any truth lay in that statement, 2013 proved to be boxing’s resuurection. Drama, brutality, courage and the art of boxing, 2013 provided every element, when combined, makes this the greatest sport in the world. Continue reading

Maidana waiting to see what Broner will do – fight him or vacate

broner74Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31 KO’s) is the mandatory challenger for WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) and he’s waiting to hear if Broner will choose to fight him or give up his newly won WBA title. Broner is going to have to make a decision soon because he can’t just sit on the title. Maidana doesn’t care either way.

If Broner gives up the title, Maidana will likely face the winner of the Keith Thurman vs. Diego Chaves for the vacant WBA title. If Broner decides he wants to take the risky fight against him, then Maidana is ready and looking forward to fight him. Continue reading

Marcos Maidana vs. Adrien Broner Would Be A Real Test For Both

When I was watching the Broner vs. Malignaggi bout on Saturday night, I noticed a few things which force me to expect Broner to hit the canvas against fighters with power in both hands. I noticed that Paulie was landing a lot more shots than most had expected him to, and if only his punches had more weight behind it, Broner would have a different time in the ring. Continue reading
