Maidana Waits For News on Next Fight, Wants Mayweather

After endless talking in the last few weeks about who Floyd Mayweather will be facing on May 3rd, WBA Welterweight champion Marcos Maidana is still in his native Santa Fe, Argentina - as he waits for news about whether it will be him who takes the spot.

In the meantime. Maidana engaged last night in a charity exhibition match against Argentine hot prospect Damián Sosa in a card at the small town of Santo Tome that generateed incredible expectations from fans and boxing press.

“I am still waiting for an official announcement on my next fight. My team is working on it, but nothing has been decided yet. They will probably give me the news in the next few days. Of course, I want to fight Mayweather Jr. on May 3rd,” said Maidana.

“Many people told me about polls. I don’t care about that. All I care is getting in the ring so I’m anxious to know who I’ll be facing.  Some say it would be Broner, others say it might be Mayweather and even Khan. So I hope they announce it this coming week,” added the hard puncher from Argentina.

Maidana’s manager Sebastian Contursi said that “we had conversations with Al Haymon and those included a few very big names for Marcos’ next fight. They are all attractive options and one of them is Mayweather.”

I think Maidana may win the lottery and Khan will be crying. However, I think Mayweather is helping Broner out as I think Broner would have been ko'd again by Maidana which would have ended his career.

Maidana has earned his place on the big stage with Floyd. I hope he gets the fight and makes some money.

Khan don't deserve to be in the ring with Mayweather. Mayweather career is coming to an end soon and he needs to stop ducking fights and fight real contenders like PAC, Bradley, Maidana. The list goes on, but for him…

[QUOTE=right_uppercut;14242795]Mayweather would rather not fight Khan considering Amir would be aggressive only in spurts since May is 95% counter puncher he prefer someone that's straight ahead, come forward fighter.[/QUOTE] False! Maidana gives Mayweather big problems. He is stronger than Khan.…
