Khan Accepts Maidana's Job Offer: Face Tim Bradley

by Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

WBA/IBF 140-pound champion Amir Khan has accepted a recent job offer from WBA "regular" beltholder Marcos Maidana. During an earlier report on BoxingScene.com, Maidana blasted Khan and offered him a job as the new "Team Maidana adviser," a direct response to some recent comments from the British boxer, where he advised Maidana to stop facing lackluster opponents and to face top level competition like WBO champion Timothy Bradley.

"So, Maidana and his team want me to be his adviser. That’s fine, I’m sure I that can do a better job than them. First bit of advice, fight guys who are in the top ten, like I do. You’ve recently fought [Petr] Petrov, ranked 57th, [Erik] Morales, 20th, [DeMarcus] Corley, 163rd. [Victor] Cayo, 34th, [William] Gonzalez, 250th," Khan wrote. 

"Damn, no wonder he has a high knockout percentage - and he couldn’t even knock out or even drop what you guys call a [fighter with a] glass jaw? He had twelve rounds to knock me out and couldn’t even put me on the canvas, and nearly [put me down] is not good enough. The second bit of advice, fight Bradley this year, get past him and then you’ll get more advice.”

It's a nice retort. Personally I am loving this rivalry building up and brewing! There absolutely has to be a rematch along the line.

The Khan Maidana fight wasn't that close. I don't care about the score, Khan dominated Maidana for the first 9 rounds. The ugly spic only won two rounds by my score-card, maybe three. But that isn't important, since it was…

[QUOTE=mani1;11218224]Its a wider margin than Maidana beat Morales by.[/QUOTE] Actually Maidana vs Morales was 116-112 on 2 cards and 114-114 on the other. Maidana vs Khan was 111-114 on 2 cards and 112-113 on the other. Keep in mind Maidana…
