Adrien Broner will narrowly outscore Marcos Maidana

Adrien Broner will defend the WBA welterweight crown versus Marcos Maidana next Saturday evening at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Currently ranked as the world’s eighth premier pound-for-pounder, the 24-year-old Broner (27-0, 22 KOs) last vacated the squared circle in June as a split decision victor over Paulie Malignaggi.

Also a former junior lightweight and lightweight titlist, the arrogant, flamboyant and simply unlikable Broner eagerly added 12 pounds to meet Malignaggi (32-5, 7 KOs).

Malignaggi’s a brilliant defensive pugilist who is capable of causing any opponent to struggle.

Still, an inferior Malignaggi made “The Problem” look mediocre.

Conversely, a past junior welterweight titleholder, the 30-year-old Maidana (34-3, 31 KOs) most recently exited the ring on June 8 with a sixth round TKO triumph over Josésito López.

A beloved Argentinean, Maidana is a bruiser whose punches land with thuds.

The match will essentially pit Broner’s blinding speed and vast overall skills against Maidana’s intimidating style and power.

Ultimately, in a fascinating and dramatic tussle, expect Adrien Broner to narrowly outscore Marcos Maidana in the “River City” a week from tonight.
