Thurman is Maidana's mandatory now. Still might not be next though. Probably Maidana vs. Paulie.

Thurman probably vs. the winner of Ortiz/Callazo next month.

Kell Book is Porter's mandatory, if not Brook than probably Khan.

I can see Mayweather picking Maidana in May if not Khan.

Broner, he needs to decide if he's gonna stay at 147 or go down. If 147, he needs a confidence booster, I'd rematch Paulie or go for someone like Josesito Lopez.

looks like Ariza is giving him something between rounds

edit: although, one does not see anything clearly. And apparently it was between round 11 and 12 which would be a strange point to take something...

Maidana has never been stopped. Stop acting like you know boxing. You clearly don't.

At what? His d is ass. His offense consists of throwing one punch at a time and shaking his head when a punch is landed on him. He has fast hands, and thats pretty much it.

You're judging his offense on his outing at welterweight. For whatever reason he simply isnt very active in this class. I dont know why. A new trainer could go a long way for him. But so could a new attitude. Dont say he isnt talented tho.

Maybe he will figure it out after this loss. I'm no Broner fan.

Eh just looks like cotton tubes soaked in ammonia, weightlifters crack the caps open and inhale the fumes to get psyched before their lifts, it's probably something like that or smelling salts...wakes you up and gives you an adrenaline rush. I don't think those are illegal, they are used to wake people up from concussions or psych players up. Used in the NFL and other sports.

I've seen plenty of Broner fights. He isn't talented at all. He was beasting at 130 because he was just bigger on fight night. Of course he can look exceptional when the punches coming back have no effect. When hes faced with someone his size, who can crack, hes done. He beats no top dog at 140 or 147. Too stationary, shitty d, doesn't throw combos, no lateral movement, crappy footwork. Look at how wide his feet are. His only "talent", is having fast hands and being bigger than his past opposition. I don't say this often, but a fighter was truly exposed last night. Dude barely won 1 round.

it's easy to make fun of him now but I agree with The Iron Fist.
He has no impressive victories but lost to Ponce de León imo, to some other guy I don't remember and if you look that bad against ****ing Paulie Maliganaggi that means you will never do anything major in boxing.
Moreover, he got fat while he was on his rap tour. I always hated fighters that get out of shape between fights..

for me, as a hater, that would diminish the fun too much....

Mayweather will be the heavy favorite, no matter who he faces. Of course, you are right that its almost an impossible match up for Maidana but I would rather see someone use the strategy of trying to bully Mayweather and really go for it than someone like Canelo, who had the genius gameplan to try to outsmart Mayweather in the ring.

No one in the welterweight division worth seeing Floyd dismantle. They just need to box each other and that be that. Maidana would get destroyed.

The only other fight I care to see Mayweather in is the Pacqiao fight. Other than that, he should just retrie. He has nothing left to prove, mine as well ride off in the sunset with your health intact.
