Amir Khan, Marcos Maidana Renew The Verbal War

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

The war of words has been renewed between WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir "King" Khan, and his division rival, WBA "regular" champ Marcos "El Chino" Maidana. Khan took the first shot, wondering why the critics weren't attacking Maidana for facing Russian opponent Petr Petrov, who Maidana stopped in four rounds on Friday in Argentina. Khan took a lot of heat for his selection of opponent in July, Zab Judah, and wondered why Maidana didn't receive the same treatment.

"By the way, Maidana fought [on Friday] and won by knockout. Well done, but the guy he fought wasn't even [ranked] in the top 50 [at 140]. Why is it when I fought Judah, who was fourth in the world, I got criticized," Khan wondered.

Maidana quickly fired back with a response - "Because you run scared from me, that's why. For the Queen's fans, it's not me [doing the] talking here. She always starts mentioning my name, and I'll always answer every time she does."

Who did Maidana beat to become a world champion anyway? WBA is so full of **** with this supertitle gift crap.

"I beat the guy and he's going backwards. All my fights in the light-welterweight division have been against fighters in the top 10! "Lamont Peterson is next for me…

I really hope Khan never fights Floyd cause he is going to get KTFO and all this will accomplish is it will embarrass Freddie.

I'd love for Khan and Maidana to fight again. I can see Khan getting too brave and making a big mistake earlier next go around because he's a lot faster and more accurate. Maidana just has to apply the pressure…
