For a moment ignore all the silliness that led up to the Paulie Malignaggi vs. Adrien Broner this past Saturday. Just concentrate on the fight and what you saw with your eyes.
What you should have seen was a past his prime boxer with no power almost steal a victory, just because his opponent rather clown around instead of being a professional.
Adrien Broner’s “big brother” is Floyd Mayweather, but there is one thing he hasn’t learned from Floyd. Regardless of what you think about Mayweather’s lifestyle, when it comes to inside the ring, he is all business. No one who works harder at his craft.
Yes, Mayweather plays hard, but he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t do drugs and he doesn’t do anything that would affect him inside that squared circle.
Mayweather success is partly god given talent, but it is also his boxing intelligence. Broner has the talent, but not the intelligence. It was fairly obvious that Paulie was going to try to use Broner’s arrogance and immaturity against him. Broner seemed to forget for half the fight that it doesn’t matter if the punches aren’t hurting you, if you aren’t throwing any punches, you won’t win any rounds. If they scored rounds on talking to your opponent while in the ring, then Broner would have won in a shutout, but that wasn’t the case.
Adrien Broner biggest opponent won’t be Maidana, Matthysse or Garcia, it will be Adrien Broner. There is no way Paulie should have even been in the fight, Broner allowed it and it almost cost him. He can get away with lackadaisical training, partying all night and not taking his opponent seriously when he is fighting the Paulies of the world, but if he doesn’t start taking things more seriously, he won’t be as fortunate in the future.
Broner has been provided with a special gift, we will see if it also becomes his curse.
BEST OF MAXIM
'I TOOK HIS GIRL'
After defeating Paulie Malignaggi, Adrian Broner proclaimed that he took his belt and his girl. There's a lot more to the story than that.

Let’s take the example of boxer Adrien Broner. “The Problem” as he is known beat Paulie Malignaggi at Barclays Center Saturday night.

I thought Adrien Broner deserved the split decision he got against WBA Welterweight beltholder Paulie Malignaggi on Saturday. Broner did the far more hurtful damage. The bigger question that lurks following Broner’s win is whether he is primed to be at the top.
The victory leaves room for interpretation. Broner certainly looks and acts the part. He is undoubtedly...
While watching Adrien Broner’s split decision win over Paulie Malignaggi just minutes ago, I can’t help but wonder if “The Problem” was exposed by the savvy veteran. Even though Malignaggi lost the fight, he kept it competitive for all 12 rounds. That’s quite the accomplishment for somebody who came into the ring as an 11-1 [...]

Yes, them are fightin’ words.

Adrien Broner beat Paulie Malignaggi in Brooklyn on Saturday in a closer than expected welterweight fight that showcased the loser’s toughness more than the winner’s skills. Broner at times appeared like an oncoming train and Paulie a man standing on the tracks, but the manicured 32-year-old somehow managed to move and jab his way into a close fight on Showtime.
Adrian Broner’s post fight interview shows the best of what he has to offer as a promoter of his brand and boxing as a whole. The guy is fearless, funny, and at most times disrespectful.
Paulie Malignaggi was extremely humble after the fight and before the decision he went to congratulate the Broner corner for an amazing bout. That gesture didn’t earn him much because Broner...
