Broner-Maidana to battle on December 14

14/10/2013 13:22

WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0) will defend his title against Marcos Maidana (34-3) on December 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is a good match-up because we will get to see Broner in with a fighter at 147 who can really punch.

In his last fight, Broner barely showed he was better than Paulie Malignaggi and although Maidana was beaten by Devon Alexander, Andriy Kotelnik and Amir Khan, his power makes him a real threat to the top fighters in the division.

Maidana will definitely test Broner's chin and we'll get the chance to see if Broner can take a punch through this fight.

Also on the card, Carlos Molina (22-5-2) will defend his WBC light middleweight title against Victor Ortiz (29-4-2) and Keith Thurman (21-0) will face Jesus Soto Karass (28-8-3) in a welterweight bout.
