In a fight of the year candidate, Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (34-4, 31 KOs) dropped welterweight champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (27-1, 22 KOs) twice and took away his WBA belt with a twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Maidana immediately cracked Broner with a right hand in the first round and had Broner holding on. Maidana continued the aggression in round two and dropped Broner. Maidana continued to pummel Broner for the rest of the round. Round three was close, but Maidana outworked Broner again in round four. Broner landed the cleaner shots in rounds five and six. Miadana upped the pressure in the seventh but also appeared to be slowing down. Maidana dropped Broner again in round eight, but then was deducted a point for an intentional headbutt. Maidana had a big round nine punishing Broner with big shots. Maidana was busier again in the tenth. Broner’s corner advised him that he needed a KO entering the eleventh. Both fighters landed big shots in the eleventh, with Broner connecting right at the bell. A desperate Broner fought hard in the twelfth looking for a KO that didn’t come. Scores were 115-110, 116-109, 117-109.

Undefeated WBA interim welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (22-0, 20 KOs) scored an impressive ninth round KO over Jesus “Renuente” Soto Karass (32-13-4, 19 KOs) to retain his belt. Soto Karass rocked Thurman almost immediately, but Thurman regained his senses was able to take over late in the round. More bombs in the ensuing rounds with Thurman getting the better of it. Thurman dropped Soto Karass with a left uppercut in the fifth round, but there was no quit in the Mexican. Thurman finally ended it with a barrage of punches in round nine that put Soto Karass down again. Time was 2:21.

WBC super bantamweight champion Leo “Terremoto” Santa Cruz (26-0-1, 15 KOs) retained his title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Cesar Seda (25-2, 17 KOs). Santa Cruz dropped Seda in round five and went on to win by scores of 116-111, 115-112, 117-110.

In the second WBA light heavyweight world championship fight in a matter of hours, Beibut Shumenov (14-1, 9 KOs) defended his “super” title with a third round KO over against previously unbeaten challenger Tamas Kovacs (23-1, 14 KOs). Shumenov dropped Kovacs in round one with a left hook, then put Kovacs again in round two with an uppercut. The end came in round three when Shumenov floored Kovacs for the third time. Time was 2:55.

The brother of former world champions Canelo and Rigoberto “El Espanol” Alvarez, 32-year-old Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez (27-4, 20 KOs) scored a controversial ten round majority decision over “Lightning” Rod Salka (18-3, 3 KO’s) in a 10-round junior welterweight bout. Salka seemingly did more, but judges went with “the name” scoring it 95-95, 96-94 and a highly questionable 98-92.

35-year-old former middleweight world champion Jermain “Bad Intentions” Taylor (32-4-1, 20 KOs) continued his comeback with a seventh round KO over 39-year-old J.C. Candelo (32-13-4, 21 KOs) in a super middleweight bout. Taylor was in command the whole way and the bout ended when Jerman dropped Candelo in the seventh round. Time was 2:57.

2012 Olympian lightweight Jamel Herring (6-0, 4 KOs) scored a second round KO over Lance “Lay ‘em Down” Williams (6-3, 6 KOs).

Unbeaten lightweight Robert Easter Jr. (8-0, 8 KOs) scored a first round KO over Hardy “El Huracan” Paredes (16-13, 10 KO’s). A body shot took out Paredes at 2:30.

Three-time U.S. Olympian Rau’shee Warren (17-0, 3 KOs) scored a one-sided eight round unanimous decision over Jose “Cacho” Silveira (15-10, 6 KOs) in a bantamweight clash. Scores were 80-72 on all cards.
