Maidana: Erik Morales Should Fight Me, Or Shut Up
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

WBA "regular" junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana was very surprised when he saw a recent report on BoxingScene.com, where WBC champion Erik Morales ruled out the possibility of a rematch in December. Morales' decision surprised Maidana because the Mexican veteran has been pushing for a rematch since their April war in Las Vegas, which saw Maidana win a close decision.

Morales is upset that earlier this month Maidana refused to fight him on a week's notice. When Lucas Matthysse withdrew from a scheduled fight with Morales [on September 17], the fight was offered to Maidana, but the Argentine boxer was already obligated to headline a big event on September 23 in Argentina.

“They offered me the rematch with Morales on one week's notice, for peanuts, and with contracts already signed [by me] to fight in Argentina. Morales is ready and I’m ready for December, so no excuses. He talked a lot about wanting a rematch with me, then he should fight me, or otherwise he should shut up,” Maidana said.

maidana was overconfident going into the fight and threw way too many punches in the opening rounds, he paid for it in spots during the middle rounds but came back and almost KTFO'd morales in the 12th before the bell rang. i think marcos will pace himself better in the rematch and give another a...
