Across the pond, this weekend, Adrien Broner will be defending his WBA welterweight belt against Marcos Maidena.

The fight, in Texas, will see Broner take another step towards his ultimate goal of being the biggest name in boxing. The modest 24 year-old certainly has big plans for his career and has commented ahead of what many perceive as a fight that could be a thriller,

‘I am going to take over boxing after Floyd Mayweather.?

‘We’ve just got to get this stepping stone out of the way. Maidana is a good fighter but he’s not on my level.’


Broner enters the fight with a record of 27-0 with 22 coming via way of knockout, however Maidana, who has a defeat to Amir Khan on his record, isn?t fazed by his opponents words, replying,

‘Everyone knows that Broner has a big mouth.”

‘But that doesn’t bother me, because his mouth can’t fight for him. Whether he has the guts to stand in front of me or if he runs, I’ll definitely go for the KO. Either way, I’m leaving the ring with the belt.’


Maidana, slightly the more experienced of the two, has a record that reads 34-3 with 31 coming by way of knockout. But, on a night that could see Broner take another step towards realizing his dreams, the champion has had the modesty to remark about his opponent,

‘I’m not going to lie, this is the biggest fight of my career.’



Maidana’s going to try to come fight me, he’s going to try to break my neck. So I’m ready, I’m focused.?

‘It’s going to be a hell of a fight. I don’t go for knockouts but I really feel I’m going to knock this guy out, I’m going to be his first stoppage.?



I don’t even think I’ve shown all of my abilities yet. Maidana is a different type of fighter and he might bring something else out of Adrien Broner the world hasn’t seen yet.’


Personally, I reckon this could be a classic and I also reckon it could go the distance but with Broner being pushed all the way by Maidana, so its Broner on points for me!
