Broner vs Maidana is a good fight because Maidana wants to catapult himself into the worlds best and the paydays they bring and Broner wants to prove why he is one of the few elite P4P fighters in the world. Personally I can see Maidana being able to beat Broner with these as the deciding factors:
Broner is pretty flat footed, Maidana won't quit coming forward, Maidana has undeniable punching power and Broners chin hasn't been tested, we haven't seen if Broner has managed to carry his power up from lightweight and Maidana is the best fighter Broner would have faced
Now GGG vs Martinez I can only see going one way, a Martinez UD he's just too slick and I don't care about GGG's power because he hasn't faced a fighter like Sergio before and I believe he will have a lot of trouble in landing his power
Broner vs. Maidana: Maidana has faced stiff competition is a season veteran in the sport. He can take a punch and he can give it. He has heart. He was down in the Ortiz fight and came back and crushed him. Broner has had soft touches, i thought he showed many flaws in his fight with Paulie. He relies too much on his talent to win fights, not only that but he gets hit too much and too often, especially by punches he should not be getting hit with. If Broner tries to box Maidana (which will take great discipline to do. Broner likes showing his offense arsenal) Maidana will pressure him into a fight. He will not back away from him. All that showboating in the ring would get him hurt. Unlike Paulie, Marcos has real punching power that hurts. Remember, Broner's power did not carry to 147, it may improve at 140 but not 147.
I have no idea who wins this fight, but if Broner fights the way he did against Paulie, taking all those shots (I know it didn't hurt him) Marcos will put a hurting on him. The fight could go either way, so either split decision or a draw.
Martinez vs. GGG= If the Martinez that shows up against the one that fought Chavez Jr., I have Martinez winning all the way. Too active and accurate and smart! His foot work was beautiful, his head movement outstanding. I wouldn't leave my hands down against Genndy but too each its own. I think GGG has punching power but not necessarily lightening speed. He cuts off the ring fairly well, but could he do that for 12 rounds against a mobile and active fighter in Sergio? Sergio can take a punch. He took a big one against the Pot Head, Sergio also displayed knock out power and looked what he did to Jr.'s face! I will go with experience and all around skill, Sergio will have a UD in this fight. 8-4.
