Various news outlets are reporting that Broner’s next opponent is 99% likely to be big hitting Argentinian Marco Maidana. The proposed date for the bout is the 14th of December. The PPV potential of this match up is obvious but due to a slew of other PPV attractions over the coming winter months it is unsure as to whether this one will make it. Broner is quoted as saying that his fight after next will be PPV only.
Broner has been captured on a video a few times in the run up to the Mayweather/Canelo clash talking about Maidana saying ‘Just show up’ amongst other typically confident statments.
Whilst Maidana does present some danger, in terms of quality he doesn’t offer a great deal more than Paulie Malignaggi. He’s certainly more dangerous punching wise but should present a easier nights work for Broner than Malignaggi.
