Sebastian Contursi, advisor to WBA junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (31-2, 28KOs), revealed that his boxer is considering a possible move to 147-pounds, according to a recent interview with BoxingScene.com's Chris Robinson. Maidana is considering a tentative ring return in February 2012.

If Maidana moves forward with his plan to join the welterweight ranks, then Paulie Malignaggi (30-4, 6KOs) is ready and waiting. Like Maidana, Malignaggi held a major championship at 140-pounds. He moved up in weight three fights ago.

"I think it's a great fight. Everybody knows that I always want to fight the best and get myself into big fights. I like the challenge of fighting the best. It's a challenge to myself to take on a fighter like Maidana. I want to challenge him to a fight. I know his adviser said that he's looking at Mayweather and Berto right off that bat. If he doesn't get those fights, I think me and him is a solid fight. I'm on a three fight win streak. I'm a welterweight who moved up from junior welterweight like him. If he wants to fight in February, I'm available," Malignaggi told BoxingScene.com.

'And we can do it on the East Coast. A lot of Argentine fighters have been fighting on the East Coast, like Sergio Martinez and Omar Narvaez. And me, being originally from New York, I think the fight will do well there. It would generate a lot of interest. And I like my chances to win that fight."

i love this matchup, paulie's more than capable of winning this fight, hope it gets made. i wish gbp would set up a card with alexander, ortiz, maidana, and malignaggi. any matchup between these four guys would make for a great card.

I didn't see the malignaggi lora fight but I heard that PM got rocked early, and was able to come back & win a UD. At first my opinion was that PM would get smashed against Maidana but after thinking about it more I think he can outbox Maidana. I can see Maidana getting frustrated of not being ab...

expected a lot of negativity towards Paulie at even mentioning Maidana, suppose you have to be an asian british muslim to get that.

lol people are talking up maidana like he's some kind of monster. This clown go outboxed by a fat ass erik morales. Paulie would be landing 5 punch combos on his face all night
