Amir Khan May Vacate if Marcos Maidana is Pushed

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has heard some serious talk going around the industry that Amir Khan will vacate the junior welterweight title if the WBA forces him to fight Marcos Maidana next. Back in June, Maidana stopped Victor Ortiz in June to pick up the WBA' interim-title at 140-pounds.

After the Ortiz win, Maidana's side was putting pressure on the sanctioning body for a shot at Khan. There was only one problem, Dmitriy Salita was the mandatory and his side was ready for an all-out legal war if their title opportunity was given to Maidana.

The WBA gave Salita the first crack - with a catch attached. The winner of Khan-Salita had 90-days to fight Maidana. I hear the sanctioning body will soon issue an order for Khan-Maidana. Khan, looking at major names like Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez and the Diaz-Malignaggi winner - may have other plans in store for 2010.
