Boxing fans believe Broner's arrogance led to his downfall and a rematch is a huge mistake for him. "Broner should go down to 140 or 135, because he couldn't take Maidana's power. I give him credit for staying up but if you look at the fight it was clearly a problem for him all night long." said Boxing fan Brian Magee 'He came into the fight a little brash and arrogant and he wasn't ready for Maidana." More boxing fans who have reached out to me have commented on the bout as well.
Jeremy from Kingman, AZ. who had just been married for a week wasn't going to miss the fight, he was calling for. "I knew Maidana would give him problems, I watched the fight with malignaggi and it was close but if he had more power, I felt like he could have gotten him. so when Maidana was available, I knew this was the guy that would test his medal."
Ryan Stanton from UNC, totally away from where the fight took place could only say, "Dude what a fight, the best of the year, Broner really got put in his place man, he's no Mayweather, he should stop partying with Lil Wayne and get serious."
