SecondsOut Team Picks: Broner Vs Maidana

SecondsOut’s global army or writers once again put their reputations on the line to predict the outcome of this Saturday’s big fight between WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner and Argentine challenger Marcos Rene Maidana At the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas,USA.


See below who our writers believe will be victorious on Saturday night.


I think this is a very tough fight for Broner despite what some may believe. Broner no doubt has the skills to outbox and defeat the tough but limited Argentine challenger and I do think he nicks a split decision(possibly controversial). I believe we will see Broner take a handy lead but sooner or later the bigger, stronger challenger may just walk Broner down and hurt him late on. Despite the late charge this may prove a little too late to finish the job.

Maidana has loads of power but falls short against fighters who have superior skills and Broner has lots of skills to spare. I wish he would find some humility, it would make it easier for me to pick him by unanimous decision.

I think Boner will dictate he fight with his speed being the factor. Boner is a slow starter and will let Maidana fire shots early and use his similar Floyd Mayweather defense to block most shots then he will take over as he makes adjustments during fights once he sees his opponent can’t hurt him.

Keep in mind Miadana can punch and we will get a good idea on Boners chin but he won’t land enough to get job done. Boner in shutout decision

I see Maidana testing Broner early in the fight to see if the young upstart can handle his power. Once Broner pass the test, he will start to potshot Maidana with counters backing Maidana up in the middle rounds. Maidana will make it interesting in the later rounds, but want be enough to win the fight.

I think this is another serious challenge for Broner. At first glance his style seems the perfect design to dominate and defeat Maidana, but Broner’s two most questioned performances came against fighters who were well-seasoned. Maidana presents another world-class caliber opponent who has been in the ring with top quality fighters and won. While he applies the pressure of Ponce De Leon, with more educated combination punching and speed, he also possesses the natural size advantage ala Malignaggi. Maidana has been working on his boxing skills, but he needed be a master boxer in this. He simply needs to impose himself and ensure that he can land with power. He must tighten his defense as well as that was what cost Paulie the decision in a fight that was razor thin. His heart will also test Broner’s resolve because even if he goes down, Maidana gets up. I know Broner can win this fight and he probably will if it is close. However, I am going with Maidana to be too much for the arrogant wanna-be star. A late knock-down inches him ahead on the cards.

Maidana will always be tough. But I can’t get the fact that a badly faded Erik Morales, with one eye shut completely for the entire fight, was able to outbox him for several rounds and take him the distance. And that’s what this fight comes down to. Can Maidana get to the elusive Broner. I don’t think he can. I see Broner out boxing a game Maidana in a rather dull fight.

This is a bout thats tailor made for Broner, the big question for me is has he brought his power up to 147lbs with him? Even without the power I can’t make a case for Maidana and predict a comfortable and wide unanimous points decision to Broner.

I’m going for Broner on points. Broner should control the fight, but Maidana will have his moments perhaps in the later rounds, but I can’t see him tagging Broner too frequently.

"Adrien Broner escaped a close one against Malignaggi. He certainly is the more skilled fighter but Marcos Maidana looked much better in his last few fights. I think Maidana will come out firing and may have success early on if Broner stays in front of him. While Maidana has improved his boxing skills it won’t take long for him to throw bombs from all angles. Broner should be able to withstand the onslaught of punches from Maidana and cruise to a points victory while possibly scoring a knockdown or two in the process."
