Broner vs Maidana results: Marcos Maidana batters Adrien Broner for upset win on Showtime

Ronald Martinez

Adrien Broner's "O" had to go tonight at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. And Marcos Maidana was the man who took it to him in the Showtime Boxing main event to take his WBA Welterweight boxing belt.

He had to deal with a horrific referee and blatant cheating, but Marcos Maidana scored one of the most satisfying wins in recent memory, humbling previously-unbeaten braggart Adrien Broner over the course of 12 rounds last night (Sat., Dec. 14, 2013) at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The writing was on the wall immediately, as Maidana wobbled Broner with his trademark overhand right. He proceeded to pour on a steady stream of punishment, with Broner's only "offense" coming in the form of humping Maidana while clinching him from behind. Things only got worse for Broner in the second stanza as Maidana dropped him with a left hook ... the first knockdown of Broner's career.

To his credit, Broner got up and picked up the pace in the third round, but he seemed to have no answer for Maidana's awkward power shots and his once-vaunted power was noticeably absent. While Broner got his fair share of solid shots in, Maidana's relentless aggression and steady body assault overcame Broner's accurate potshots.

Things got interesting in the eighth round, when Maidana landed another huge left hook and put Broner on his seat. When Broner got up, he immediately clinched, which is when things went from interesting to ridiculous.

Broner tied up both of Maidana's hands. Frustrated, Maidana head butted him in the chin. Broner immediately started crying to the referee and rolling on the floor. Maidana got a point taken from him immediately, while Broner -- who had been warned for pushing with his forearms multiple times -- continued to do so with impunity.

Luckily, Maidana still got the last laugh, coming on strong in the next three rounds and -- in a glorious moment of retribution -- humping Broner in the eleventh round.

After which Broner landed a blatantly late left hook and didn't even get a glance from the referee.

While Broner did better in the final frame, the judges thankfully made the right call, giving Maidana the WBA Welterweight title on scores of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109.

Broner immediately ran out of the ring, fans showering him with both boos and hurled drinks.

It was a satisfying end to a quality night of fights, which also featured brutal knockouts by Beibut Shumenov and Keith Thurman and a quality scrap between Leo Santa Cruz and Cesar Seda.
