Adrien Broner wants immediate rematch with Marcos Maidana

Adrien Broner wants an immediate rematch with Marcos Maidana after losing his WBA welterweight title to the Argentine in Texas.

Adrien Broner has urged Marcos Maidana to accept an immediate rematch for the WBA welterweight title that was ripped from his grasp in a breathtaking bout at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The 24-year-old American left the ring immediately after announcer Jimmy Lennon Jnr read out the judges' unanimous scores of 115-110, 116-109, 117-109, but later conceded that the better man won.

"I'm okay," AP Sport quotes him as saying. "I'm still the three-time world champion in three different weight classes.

"Tonight, Maidana was just the better man, but we fought a hell of a fight. I hope the fans got what they deserved. I'm still going to live like we won the fight. I'm still going to party.

"I'll tell you one thing, make a rematch. I don't need a warm-up fight. I want a rematch."

Broner won the strap with a split-decision victory over Paulie Malignaggi in June.
