Broner vs Maidana

Broner 3Maidana


14th December 2013


The WBA World Welterweight Championship

Post-fight Analysis: The invincible Broner meets his match and loses in toughest challenge yet

The opening rounds were all Maidana in this Texan brawl. 'The Problem' appeared to have underestimated the Argentinian, and unexpectantly found himself dropped half way through the second round. His offense opened up in the third, but Maidana's aggression continued to work against Broners speed.

Broner gained momentum over the middle half of the fight, catching up with Maidana on the scorecards. Then a further Broner knock down in the 8th was immediately cancelled out by a foolish headbutt from Marcos Maidana.

The final rounds were as exciting as any in boxing. Maidana showed class, but Broner continued to threaten, and there was always a chance that on close scorecards Broner could have won the fight.

At the final bell, the points aptly reflected the action. Marcos 'El Chino' Maidana won with a UD and points of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109, to win the WBA World Welterweight Championship.


Pre-fight Analysis: Flashy Broner looks for first defence against hitman Maidana

Brash and flash WBA World Welterweight champion Adrien Broner looks to defend the title he won from Paulie Malignaggi for a first time against hard hitting Argentine Marcos Maidana.

Broner, 24, is seen as a future pound for pound contender after leaping two weight classes to defeat Brooklyn's Paulie Malignaggi LIVE on BoxNation in June. The win, taken on a split decision, made "The Problem" a three-weight world champion after stints as super-featherweight and lightweight top dog.

Now the trash talking supremo is looking to move to 28-0 against the experienced Argentine Maidana, 30, who has a 34-3 record which includes 31 wins by way of knockout.

Post-fight Analysis: Speedy Thurman notches another TKO win on his blemish free record

The quick footed Thurman proved why he's one to watch, with a calculated dismantling of Soto Karass.

Soto Karass' best moments came in the opening 30 seconds of the fight, but for the rest of the fight found his swinging hooks flying over the head of 'One Time' Thurman.

Thurman, the nimbler of the boxers, ended the fight with a left hook, overhand right and then a finishing left uppercut, at which point the ref jumped in to stop the fight by way of TKO after 2 minutes and 21 seconds of round 9.
