March 7, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada
By Peter Lim
Given the styles of the two combatants, the temptation in predicting the outcome here is to look at Marcos Maidana W12 Adrien Broner (December 2013) and John Molina TKO 10 Mickey Bey Jr. (July 2013), since Molina fights a lot like Maidana, and Broner a lot like Bey. But although Molina can crack as hard as Maidana, he is not the educated slugger that is Maidana but more of a seek-and-destroy plodder. Remember, Bey was easily boxing Molina's ears off before he got caught in the tenth round.
Broner's aversion to taking risks will not win him any new fans.
