Blair Cobbs Defeats Adrien Broner By Unanimous Decision

Following a rather lively fight, welterweight boxer Blair “The Flair” Cobbs (17–1-1, 10 KO’s) defeated Adrien “The Problem” Broner (34-5-1, 24 KO’s) by way of unanimous decision in a career-best win. Broner would begin the affair by placing himself in a hole by doing little to nothing in the opening round and getting dropped hard in the second period by a thumping left hand.

To his credit, as hard as he went down, The Problem got up without issue and fought on sturdy legs for the remainder of the period. Unfortunately for him however, the four-division champion would not find his own consistent offensive rhythm until well into the second half of the duel. Meanwhile, the very active Cobbs was constantly peppering Broner with jabs, ‘stay busy shots’ to the head and body and randomly sprinkled in heavy blows.

The left hand of Cobbs was particularly vexing for The Problem, who could not seem to stay away from it for any significant amount of time. The pesky hand ejected Broner’s mouth piece on several occasions. With the pace that he set however, it looked like, with the coming of the eighth round, Cobbs began slowing just a bit, which allowed Broner the opportunity to let his hands go more readily.

In fact, Broner closed the show particularly strongly considering how he started and his penchant for low output. When the match went to the scorecards however, the judges deemed Cobbs the victor by way of unanimous decision to the tune of 97-91 (twice) and 96-93. It will be interesting to see what type of follow-up duel Cobbs makes for his next fight.
