An enthusiastic crowd of hundreds of boxing fans turned out for an to the public press conference on the floor of the Alamodome Thursday as Golden Boy Promotions formally announced DANGER ZONE, headlined by a highly anticipated matchup between undefeated WBA welterweight champion Adrien âThe Problemâ Broner (27-0, 22 KOs) and former WBA junior welterweight champion Marcos âEl Chinoâ Maidana (34-3, 31 KOs) on Saturday, December 14.
Adrian Broner: After I f**k him up on December 14, Iâm willing to fight anybody. I donât care. You can switch trainers all you want. You can train a different way. That sh*t ainât gonna win you a fight. Skills win you fights. This is an individual sport. You can go lift weights with your teeth. You can go push cars for two months. That sh*t ainât gonna help you in the ring man. Iâm blessed. I got the skills to pay the bills and I got enough will, my last name could be Smith.
I donât know if heâs faking that he doesnât speak English. But after December 14, heâs gonna speak English and I donât think the fight is going the full twelve rounds. Iâm going for the knockoutâ¦The Argentine fighters are strong for six rounds. They canât go much past six. This fight is over shortly after the sixth.
Thereâs a lot of people here that hate me, but yâall really love me. Hate is just love at the end of the day. Yâall just donât know it yet. So after the performance I put on December 14, I hope my haters become fans because I love all yâall. And Iâm not going to take nobodyâs woman this fight. This ainât that kind of fight.
Marcos Maidana: This is a fight I wanted. I wanted to fight the best. I wanted to fight for the title. Adrien Broner right now is the champion so I promise you Iâm prepared now, but Iâm going to get even better prepared with my team.
Every fight Iâve improved, Iâve changed things in my arsenal. Come December 14, youâre going to see a world champion in Chino Maidana. The key is to throw a lot of punches. Pressure him. Kick his ass. And thatâs what I am going to do.
