Marcos Maidana unanimously outpoints Adrien Broner

Marcos Maidana overpowered Adrien Broner to take the WBA welterweight championship, knocking him down twice in a unanimous decision Saturday night at the Alamodome.

The target of heavy trash talking leading up to the fight, Maidana was dominant in handing Broner his first loss in 28 bouts. After the judges' scores of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-109 were announced in favor of Maidana, Broner ran out of the ring.

Broner is nicknamed "The Problem," but Maidana (35-3) had the answer with power that the three-time world champion had never faced before.
