Maidana vs Petrov in Play For September 23rd Clash

By Jhonny Gonzalez

According to members of his team, junior welterweight Petr Petrov (29-2-2, 13 KOs) has been selected as the opponent for Marcos Maidana (30-2, 27KOs) for his homecoming fight on September 23rd at the Sociedad Alemana de Villa Ballester in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Petrov has never been stopped as a pro and his last defeat came in 2002, by decision, to Vitali Tajbert. Since that loss, he won thirteen straight fights. Maidana makes the first defense of his WBA "regular" title. He was scheduled to face Robert Guerrero on August, but the fight was canceled when Guerrero suffered a shoulder injury in training.
