Maidana Won't Be Ready, Broner II To Get Pushed Back

Sebastian Contursi, manager of WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31KOs), informed BoxingScene.com that his fighter will be unable to face Adrien Broner (27-1, 22KOs) on a date in April.

Last month in San Antonio, Maidana scored the biggest victory of his career with a twelve round unanimous decision over Broner at the Alamodome.

Broner recently exercised his contractual option for an immediate rematch. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer was looking to stage the Showtime televised fight on April 19 at the Alamodome or April 26 in Los Angeles.

However, Maidana will not have enough time to properly train, says Contursi. And, Maidana's girlfriend is expecting the birth of their daughter in mid-March, which prevents the Argentine boxer from traveling over to the United States to prepare with trainer Robert Garcia in Oxnard, California. 

Contursi has already informed Al Haymon, who advises both Broner and Maidana.

"We just had an approaching telephone conversation with Al Haymon and I've let him know that April is too early. We don't know about Broner, but Maidana usually needs six weeks to rest and ten weeks for training camp, so there is not enough time to rest and train properly for a major fight in April. On top of that, Maidana spent half of last year away from home training and his girlfriend is pregnant and expects for mid-March, so he wants to be present for his baby girl's birth. Those are the reasons," Contursi told BoxingScene.com.

1. Why would Khan fight Broner? As #1, isn't Broner rematching Maidana? and secondly Broner himself said he doesn't want to go to 140 (though it might be better off for his career) 2. Get real, very slim chance at Lara-Mayweather ever happening and here's why, A. Lara doesn't really have...

[QUOTE=El Angel]I agree, just because Floyd is a huge favorite against every WW in the world right now, doesn't mean that those aren't acceptable fights for him. Maidana is a WW champ, coming off a huge win, and has a that X-factor casuals love in his punching power. Mayweather-Maidana is the fig...
