By Press Release | December 11, 2013
ADRIEN BRONER ON MARCOS MAIDANA:

"He [Maidana] has never fought me.  He's never seen anybody in the ring like me, so he doesn't know what he's going to encounter," stated undefeated WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner, who spoke at the open workout ahead of his highly-anticipated clash with former jr. welterweight champion Marcos Maidana. Check out what else he had to say!

Adrien Broner, Undefeated WBA Welterweight and Three-Division World Champion:

[On how he prepares for a fighter that is so aggressive] "He [Maidana] has never fought me.  He's never seen anybody in the ring like me, so he doesn't know what he's going to encounter."

[On doing anything different in training to maintain his punching power at 147 pounds] "I'm okay.  I've been eating a lot of ice cream."

[On Marcos Maidana being a knockout victim] "I don't have to explain what is already understood. He makes a lot of mistakes.

[On flying 65 family members to Colorado for Thanksgiving] "I just wanted to have a good time for Thanksgiving and see my family, but it was right back to work after that.

"I have to stay focused.  I am not going to allow distraction.  I'm not going to lie.  This is the biggest fight of my career to date.  He is going to try to hurt me, so I am ready and focused."
