Frankie Gavin previews Broner-Maidana and Thurman-Soto Karass

Loved and loathed in equal measure, WBA World Welterweight king Adrien Broner certainly brings fight fans into a lather.

He is undeniably talented and appears to possess all the technical tools to become the dominant superstar of this decade.

Tomorrow evening, at the fabulous Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, we should have a clearer indication as to whether ‘The Problem’ has the mental fibre to match his physical gifts when he fronts up to stone-fisted Argentine Marcos Maidana.

Adrien Broner vs Marcos Maidana: undercard fighters media workout quotes

Keith Thurman, WBA Interim Welterweight World Champion:

“I am truly blessed to be where I am in the world of boxing. This is a dream come true.  I have been boxing since the age of seven and in the amateur ranks all I ever wanted to be was a world champion.

“I am happy to be here.  I am happy to receive the fan base and the recognition that I deserve and being on the networks. I fight hard.  I am hungry all of the time and even though I have a belt, I’m still hungry.  There are plenty other belts out there and you better believe that my fight against Soto Karass is going to be one heck of a fight.  I am also looking forward to 2014.”
