Broner-Maidana All-Access to air on Dec. 7

Showtime will air its premiere episode of the two-part series of All-Access: Broner vs Maidana on Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT prior to the broadcast of the welterweight fight between Zab Judah and Paulie Malignaggi at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. ET.

Welterweight contender Marcos Maidana will challenge WBA beltholder Adrien “The Problem” Broner on Dec. 14 on  Showtime at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.


A 30-year-old puncher from Argentina, Maidana (34-3, 31 knockouts) will be after his fourth straight stoppage victory against Broner (27-0, 22 KOs), a 24-year-old talent who is coming off a split-decision that dethroned Malignaggi in his 147-pound debut in June.

Malignaggi and Judah will fight on Dec. 7 at Barclays Center in their native Brooklyn in advance of the Broner-Maidana fight the following weekend.

In anticipation of the Broner-Maidana bout, Showtime will air two each of the fighters’ classic battles, including Broner’s win over Malignaggi, as well as his fifth-round stoppage of Vicente Escobedo in July of 2012.

Also to be shown are two of Maidana’s three straight stoppage wins comprised of those over Jesus Soto Karass and Josesito Lopez in September and June in the eighth and sixth-rounds, respectively.
