Despite providing the main support to the Scottrade Center, Saint Louis main event – headlined by hometown favourite Devon Alexander and heavy-hitter Marcos Maidana on February 25Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner stole the show due to his headline-grabbing ring-walk, the undoubtedly elite-level performance he produced against a high-calibre challenger in Eloy Perez and, of course, his fight-ending knockout of the erstwhile undefeated Californian.

Broner rapped his way to the ring, past a polarised crowd, but backed up his big talk with his in-ring skills

Post-fight, Broner said he could have kept his jewelry on as he did not get hit, Perez did manage to land 26 of 160 shots

While Perez was limited to ten power punches in four rounds, Broner landed 36/77; the final two put Eloy out of action

With the victory, Broner rose to 23-0-0, 19ko and made a successful first defence of his WBO world title at 130lbs

Alexander's victory over Maidana was his most convincing since a 2010 stoppage over Juan Urango

Devon out-jabbed Marcos (note the cut on Maidana's left eye) as well as out-throwing and out-landing his opponent

It was tough to give Maidana one winning round as Alexander successfully shut the power puncher out of action
