Trash talking boxer Adrien Broner got his ass beat and his welterweight title stripped in a stunning loss to Marcos Maidana this Saturday ... but TMZ Sports has learned, there's now a full-blown investigation into allegations of cheating.

Sources close to "the Problem" tell us ... the Texas Boxing Commission is now analyzing video of the fight which some say shows Maidana taking what looks like a pill during the WBA welterweight championship fight last Saturday.

The rules are so strict ... even water needs to be tested prior to a fight before the boxer can consume it.  Pills and any other substance for that matter are off limits.

Broner -- who was previously undefeated -- says the loss hasn't shattered his ego ... he's confident the investigation will prove Maidana cheated.

We're told the boxing commission will reveal the results of the investigation in 1-2 days.

Broner lost end of story. I happen to watch boxing and I like both fighters. But Maidana fought the same way he always had in the past. Everybody is trying to be the next Mayweather. Well guess what, there is only ONE Floyd Mayweather

This is absolutely a cheater. You can see the pill in his hand. Broner should get his belt back. Papichulo you are no better than Broner. Your ignorance shows through your words. It appears to me Hispanics are doing the cheating to be on top, look back. You can't win them all. 40 million illegals in this country, so whose the loser?

The ONLY thing Hispanics can and should do is clean toilets, and sometimes mow lawns. Anything other than that you can beat they will cheat to compete. They're worthless!

Saw the fight and routed for Marco the whole time because I hate a ****y fighter but damn the accusations make sense. I've never seen a boxer have so much energy throughout a fight. I was also wondering why he was always stretching his jaw like a coke head with "coke jaw". Makes sense now.
