Maidana vs. Soto Karass To Become WBA Eliminator?

By Jhonny Gonzalez

BoxingScene.com has been advised that the World Boxing Association has received a request to sanction Marcos Maidana (31-3, 28KOs) vs. Jesus Soto Karass (26-7-3, 17KOs) as a WBA welterweight eliminator. The Showtime televised fight takes place on the Saul Alvarez-Josesito Lopez undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Maidana recently sent the WBA an official notification to indicate his intention to vacate the WBA "regular" title at 140-pounds.

The WBA champion at 147 is Paulie Malignaggi, who returns on October 20th, likely against Pablo Cesar Cano at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Maidana ALREADY said he didn't like the way he felt how slow he was at 147 losing to Alexander who was much larger than Maidana on fight night. Yet his mgmt team talks him into another fight at 47. Stupid.
