Maidana solved the unpopular Problem

One of the best fights of the year was also one of the most satisfying for boxing purists as the obnoxious Adrien “The Problem” Broner lost for the first time on Saturday.

The foul mouthed American who relishes in disrespecting his opponents to an even worse level than his mentor Floyd “Money” Mayweather does, took a systematic beating, getting soundly outpointed by Argentina’s Marcos Maidana.

Broner lost his WBA welterweight crown in San Antonio’s Alamodome in the process and like many sore losers did not have the grace to stay in the ring after for a post-fight interview.

Maidana twice knocked Broner down to inflict a first career defeat in 28 bouts on a fighter who at 24 assumed he would be veteran Mayweather’s successor but may never realize his full potential because of his mind-boggling arrogance.

Maidana’s unanimous decision came with scores of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109 in his favour.

Broner entered the contest as a red-hot favorite, but big-hitting Maidana dropped him in the second round for his first career count and again for another standing count in the eighth.

Broner’s corner advised him at the start of the 12th round that he needed a knockout to win and to his credit he tried desperately but without success.

A rematch is likely and this time Broner is likely to show more respect to a fighter whose only three losses in 38 bouts were on points against other world champs Andriy Kotelnik, Amir Khan and Devon Alexander.
