Maidana To Retain His Title Status in Bout With Alexander

By Hilmar Rojas

The world championship committee of the World Boxing Asociation has approved Marcos Maidana's conditional request for his upcoming fight with Devon Alexander, which takes place on February 25th in St. Louis, Missouri. Maidana, the WBA's "regular" champion at 140-pounds, will fight Alexander at the welterweight limit of 147. Maidana (31-2, 28KOs) submitted the conditional request to ensure that his upcoming fight with Alexander (22-1, 13KOs) will not jeopardize his title status at 140. The move may indicate Maidana's desire to return to the junior welterweight division in 2012.

Don't know why everyone here thinks that Maidana will have a bad showing or will lose tuis fight? When Maidana puts on the pressure on Devon, Devon is going to fold faster than a 7,2 hand in Texas Hold'm. Devon…

Despite the fact the WBA would sanction the rape and torture of their own grandmothers for the correct fee, I actually think this is good news. There is a high probability that he’ll get robbed after all.

Makes sense, if Maidana has a bad showing, he can just move back down and keep his title while fighting @ J WW
