Maidana Arrives in Oxnard, Starts Training With Garcia

By Chris Robinson

Early last month, news broke that WBA junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana was the latest high-profile fighter considering joining the talented stable of trainer Robert Garcia down in Oxnard, California. Already having spent time working with the likes of Brandon Rios, Antonio Margarito, Nonito Donaire, and Kelly Pavlik, amongst others, Garcia seemed open to adding Maidana to the mix but was unsure when the rugged Argentinean was going to be making his way to camp.
 
Coming off of a disappointing points loss to Devon Alexander this past February, it looks like Maidana has officially made the jump to the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy, as Garcia informed me earlier tonight. Waking up early, Maidana is said to be putting in work at 10 AM while Garcia gives his time to Rios and Pavlik later in the day.
 
Rumor is that Maidana may be returning on the September 15th Golden Boy Promotions pay-per-view event in Las Vegas headlined by WBC junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez against an opponent to be determined. Maidana would fit in well on that card, as Alvarez will likely be facing either all-action brawler James Kirkland or former champion Paul Williams while a featherweight match between Daniel Ponce De Leon and Jhonny Gonzalez may also find its way to the billing.

Expect more on Maidana in the coming days…
