Marcos Maidana of Argentina will be the latest fighter to try and hand Adrien Broner his first defeat when he challenges Broner for his welterweight championship Dec. 14 at the Alamodome in San Antonio (on Showtime).
The hard-hitting Maidana (34-3, 31 KOs) was asked during a news conference last week formally announcing the fight about his plan of attack. He laid it out in simple fashion.
“The key is to throw a lot of punches,” said Maidana, 30. “Pressure him, kick his (butt). And that’s what I am going to do.”
Broner, just 24, is 27-0 with 22 knockouts and has already won titles in three weight classes.
