It would be well worth the PPV ticket, better than Matthysse Maidana by miles.
Maidana has IMPROVED a lot in the last few fights and I've loved his style for a while now but the more I watch the Broner fight I'm getting more and more impressed. He's cutting off the ring...he's on the balls of his feet when he's defending. He' agile like a cat in that fight.
I'm not sure about this one...Maidana is just one of those dudes that you have to mix it up with. You can box the hell out of him, but he's dangerous all the way to the last bell. If you slug with him, he'll get his second wind and/or catch you slipping.
Matthysse isn't as active as Maidana, which was his undoing in the Garcia fight. I've seen Maidana hit with everything but the kitchen sink, and he's yet to substantially bleed or swell...which was Matthysse's undoing in the Garcia fight.
As mentioned, you can do everything right against Maidana, but that millisecond of time that a mental lapse occurs, or a guy gets comfortable, shit just goes down hill. That pressure and awkward punches may be a problem for Danny, but as we all know, styles makes fights, so the shit may go totally different. The only person that I remember actually having their way with Maidana, was Alexander.
