Marcos Maidana calls out Adrien Broner: 'If he's the champion, I want him!'

Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

Welterweight contender Marcos Maidana says he wants a shot at Adrien Broner, but will Broner take that fight?

Marcos Maidana is looking for a title shot at welterweight, and new WBA titlist Adrien Broner is in his sights. Maidana took to Twitter to confirm that he wants to take on the young star, and win a second world title.

Maidana (34-3, 31 KO) last fought on June 8, beating Josesito Lopez in an exciting Showtime main event from the Home Depot Center in California. Broner (27-0, 22 KO) beat Paulie Malignaggi last night on Showtime, and said after the fight that he's open to bouts anywhere from 135 to 147. Broner does still hold the WBC lightweight title, and there are plenty of fights for him at any weight, including a lot of Golden Boy and Golden Boy associated names at 140 pounds.

Will Broner fight Maidana? Some might expect with his speed and ability, Broner could make easier work of Maidana than he did Malignaggi, but there's also the factor of Maidana's power, which is obviously much greater than Malignaggi's.

Is this a fight you'd want to see? Who would you pick?
