Marcos Maidana Blasts Petr Petrov, KO Win in Four

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Villa Ballester, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBA "regular" junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (31-2, 28KOs) knocked out Petr Petrov (29-2-2, 13KOs) in the fourth round of a one-sided contest.

Petrov was doing a lot of holding and surving very early on and continued the same tactics in the second round. Maidana started landing in the third and kept backing Petrov in the ropes to unload with combinations. Whenever Maidana got too close, Petrov held to get out of trouble.

At the start of the fourth, Maidana put Petrov down and had him ina brief moment of trouble. The Russian boxer recovered well and used his defense skills to prevent Maidana from doing more damage. But in the final thirty seconds, Maidana blasted Petrov with a series of punches against the ropes, to the head and body, and nearly lifted him off his feet when the challenger crumbled down to his knees. The ref began a count but saw Petrov was in bad shape and waved off the fight.

That's why Floyd chose Ortiz over Maidana. That's why Bradley won't fight Maidana. Marcos Maidana has the punching power of a Middleweight hence why nobody wants to fight him. Khan isn't anxious to give him a rematch anytime soon either!

I would have given the guy another round, but he wasn't going to win anyway it was obvious. I must say though Maidana's footwork is a lot better, I got him in a rematch over Khan if it ever happens.

Maidana and Bradley should fight now. The winner gets to hold Khans champion belts during Khans ring walk. The loser gets the honor of keeping Khans gym gear and locker clean and tidy
