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.

He obviously cheated.... if he didn't was he doing when he was covering his mouth you guys can't say he was bleeding because he definitely wasn't

The only cheating done was Broner's professional wrestling style forearming, Broner hitting after the bell and the punch broner threw when he shoved Maidana through the ropes. Marcos Maidana fought his typical fight and was just the better man. The referee tried his best 2 help Broner and it didnt work that punch after the bell in round 11 was grounds for a disqualification.

Anyone saying he "clearly" took a pill is on some, themselves. He might have; I don't know, and don't care, but there is nothing "clear" about these vids and pics.

Ok let's say he did cheat. Why wouldn't he have the pill ready beforehand instead of putting in the napkin with a camera right behind him? Why would he give him a pill at the end of the fight when it takes at least 30 mins to digest? If anybody was taking pills it was broner popping a Molly and dancing like an idiot. He lost, just let it go.

Lets say for the sake of argument that he did take something, this happened at the end of round 11 by then Broner had already gotten his ass whooped! Briner is just a whinny kid looking for some kind of redemption. Face it Broner, youre not as nice as you thought you were. For once, be a man and take your loss with with humility but I guess thats too much to ask for a brat like you.

I came here to see mayweathers guy get his butt whipped, but after seeing the other guy take the pill I am disgusted. I went to a high school where kids took LSD by mouth and they would get incredible strength in minutes. It makes them able to resist pain. This is why I hate boxing now....

You stupid imbeciles. It's a rolled up piece of cotton which is placed inside the mouth to stop bleeding. Obviously none of you have ever been in a boxing gym so i will let you off wth your ignorance.
