BoxingScene.com spoke with WBA "regular" junior welterweight champion/welterweight contender Marcos Maidana (31-3, 28KOs), and his adviser Sebastian Contursi, to discuss the status of his career. Maidana was scheduled to face unbeaten Keith Thurman next Saturday night in an HBO televised co-feature, but he withdrew from the fight after making a decision to take another direction.

According to Maidana, he is currently in talks with Golden Boy Promotions to appear on the Saul Alvarez-Josesito Lopez quadrupleheader, which takes place on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Showtime will televise the card.

Another possible option is a fight with WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi on October 20th, when Golden Boy stages their first show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

"There is a good chance, we are having talks with Golden Boy, that maybe I might fight on September the 15th in Las Vegas, but there is also another chance [for me], facing Malignaggi. But September 15th is one possibility," Maidana told BoxingScene.com.

One fight Maidana would not rule out, but it hasn't been discussed with him personally, is a high-stakes clash with his Argentine countryman Lucas Matthysse.

"I think that it's a great fight, of course, and in Argentina it would be a huge fight. [Golden Boy] keeps talking about it, [but] it was never offered. We were never reached about it," Maidana said.

[QUOTE=flint]maidana vs mathysis at 140. make that happen[/QUOTE]That fight will be given FOTY as soon as it's signed haha. Makes too much sense not to make it. Put it in a soccer stadium in Argentina and with a co-main event featuring Marvailla.

make it happen

why not have Josesito Lopez vs Maidana instead at 140. honestly Maidana shouldn't fight at 147 but if GBP wants to whore him out as a name so be it. I'm not sure what Maidana's contract is with GBP and universum but I think it's time to leave. the way things are going with Canelo maybe he'...
