Adrien Broner Wants To Fight Manny Pacquiao In Floyd Mayweather’s Stead

Floyd Mayweather

There has been talk of a rematch between boxers Floyd Mayweather and Marcos “Chino” Maidana, after the latter’s defeat to the reigning, undefeated champion in the ring this month. However, the Judiciary Report is against it. Mayweather should not have fought Maidana in the first place, after he was accused of questionable conduct (Adrien Broner Apologizes For Running Out Of The Ring And Marcos Maidana Is Being Investigated).

Then on May 3, 2014, during “The Moment” as it was billed, Maidana engaged in more unorthodox ring tactics. Mayweather should endeavor to fight someone other than Maidana, as the fight was not a clean one on the challenger's end, replete with low blows, kickboxing (which shocked Mike Tyson who was sitting in the audience) and headbutts, giving the champ his first cut in the ring, with blood pouring into one of his eyes. Maidana’s trainer told him on tape to make it a dirty fight and he made it so. 

Manny Pacquiao

This week, Mayweather’s protégé Adrien Broner, who defeated Carlos Molina on the undercard of the May 3, 2014 fight, wants to take on beloved boxer, Manny Pacquiao. Tweets Broner retweeted on his Twitter page in addition to other items on social networking indicate Broner is in favor of a potential bout with Pacquiao.

While Broner taking on Paquiao would be an interesting match up, this is not the main fight people want to see. The public has demanded a Mayweather v. Paquiao fight for years. Mayweather should fight Amir Khan, Adrien Broner and Manny Pacquiao. In the mean time, Broner should have a rematch with Maidana to try to avenge his 2013 loss to the tough contender.
