From humping his opponent in the ring to getting knocked down twice and losing, Adrien Broner had many embarrassing moments in his unanimous decision defeat to Marcos Maidana on Saturday.
One moment that cannot be overlooked is how he flopped after being headbutt by Maidana in the eighth round.
Maidana recorded his second knockdown of the fight in the eighth, and Broner was so desperate to gain any edge possible that he totally faked being hurt after Maidana raised his head into his chin. I mean just look at Broner’s pathetic delayed reaction. He got hit, realized he had a chance to gain a point, and went down about a second or two later. What an acting job.
Maidana’s headbutt wasn’t the traditional head-to-head type of headbutt, but he still was penalized a point because of Broner’s act.
Luckily for Maidana, losing the point did not affect the outcome of the fight as he won easily on all three judges’ cards. But you can definitely add this to the list of embarrassing moments that Broner will have to work awfully hard to overcome. He really lost a lot of respect among fans for his poor showing.
