No disrespect OP but you're making a thread about boxing and you only found out about Maidana in his last fight? Maidana has had tons of fights with notable boxers, Ortiz, BertMorales, Khan etc
Mayweather also is in a completely different league compared to Broner, I don't understand why people don't get that. Stylistically they're different fighters.
Actually, after Hopkins lost his belt to Taylor, my interest in boxing tapered off. I only came back in the past few years after seeing Danny Garcia and, more recently, Bryant Jennings. Am I am super-homer? Probably. But Philly has a strong boxing scene as it is, regardless.
And ASAC, it's not necessarily losing money. Maidana opened up at +750. If you're not up on gambling, if I drop a $100 bet, a win brings me $750 + the $100 vig. Keeping in mind I won $200 on the Maidana/Broner fight ($50 bet on +400), I'm still up a bean on a loss.
But yes, I probably will lose that bet anyway.
