Marcos Maidana vs. Adrien Broner full fight video highlights from Showtime

So much for the hype...

"The king is dead! Long live the king!"

That was Showtime announcer Mauro Ranallo's call when the scores were read at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio, Texas after it was announced that Marcos Maidana won a very clear and well-deserved Unanimous Decision over World Boxing Association (WBA) Welterweight champion Adrien Broner.

Broner has been hyped by the boxing media as the heir apparent to Floyd Mayweather's crown. He's a brash, young fighter that talks trash and backs it up inside the ring. Entering the bout with Maidana, Broner sported an undefeated record and appeared to be the next great defensive boxer.

Sometimes a fighter lives up to the hype. Other times their opponents see the man they are instead of the man they're expected to be. Last night was an example of the latter as Maidana took the fight to Broner right from the opening bell. The Argentinian boxer dropped Broner twice over the course of twelve rounds.

The king is indeed dead.
