I see. Well as long as he fessed up to the dangers and wanting to stay away that's cool. For as much love as Maidana gets though he did duck Thurman and also ducked Bradley last summer also, smh.

Maidana was right not to fight Thurman. At the time Thurman was 17-0 with 16 ko's and most people never heard of him, would be a huge risk with little reward for chino
I haven't been able to pay as much attention to the sport as of late, as I'd like to.
