Broner still showed signs of greatness even in his defeat, but how he will react now will make all the difference!
Adrien Broner lost overwhelmingly last night to Marcos Maidana in a 12 round decision. Broner was knocked down twice in the fight. The Problem with this fight for the kid was his weight class and age. Broner is 23 and really a 140 pounder. If you watch boxing, you would know that Maidana is one of the hardest punchers in the business and can take a punch just as well. El Chino is also a seasoned brawler who has battled his way to where he is and Broner has not… he’s a prospect. Broner doesn’t really move well either, although he’s fooled a lot of people with his mimic of Floyd’s shoulder roll and fade away. When he got knocked down last night, the first time, it was from that fake shoulder roll NOT BEING DONE PROPERLY and Maidana coming right over the top of it and landing on his chin. If Broner takes this loss in stride, rematches Chino, and shows the same heart it took last night to even get up after the first knockdown and keep scrapping… he will be a great fighter. But if he isn’t humbled, keeps rapping and making sex flicks, doesn’t STAY IN THE GYM… then this is the end.
Did you guys see that Thurman kid last night, though? Now, that kid is a monster! Who wants to fight him?
