Adrien Broner credits Marcos Maidana, still wants immediate rematch

Will Adrien Broner head right into a rematch with Marcos Maidana? He's still saying that's exactly what he wants to do.

Adrien Broner isn't making excuses, isn't trying to find a tune-up rebound comeback fight, and isn't staying silent and hiding. He's giving Marcos Maidana full credit for beating him on December 14, and still says he's heading right into a rematch with the Argentine slugger soon.

Broner (27-1, 22 KO) may not change his persona or personality or character or whatever it is that people complain about, but he's showing some grit here. If he gets the immediate rematch he says he wants, that shows a lot of heart and some real balls. He'll have to make some serious adjustments to his approach or the same thing could easily happen again. A rematch win propels him back into the run toward superstardom. A rematch loss is a major issue.
