Marcos Maidana: Honestly, I Don't Know Kell Brook At All

Three days ago our friends at BoxingScene.com reported that promoter Eddie Hearn, who oversees unbeaten welterweight contender Kell Brook, would love to match the Sheffield-born fighter with junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana someday.

Brook is coming off of a dominant points win over former title challenger Matthew Hatton last weekend while Maidana suffered the third loss of his career of February 25th when he was soundly outpointed by a rejuvenated Devon Alexander in the southpaw’s hometown of St. Louis over ten rounds.

The fight with Alexander saw Maidana rise from 140 to 147 pounds and he seemed out of sorts and a bit sluggish, almost as if the added weight was slowing him down. Catching up with the Argentinean bruiser on Sunday morning, he affirmed that he likely will be going back down to the junior welterweight division but can’t rule out business at 147 down the line.

“I still think I'm going back to 140 to defend my WBA title,” Maidana stated through his advisor Sebastian Contursi. “However, we cannot rule out a new movement to 147, probably by the end of this year or early next year.”

And while Maidana admits that he isn’t too familiar with Brook or his style, he expressed interest in traveling to his hometown if such a fight were to occur.

“To be honest, I don't know him at all,” Maidana said of Brook. “I don't think any of his fights have been televised in Argentina. I am not scared to go to no one's backyard. In fact most of the time I do, as you know. But the whole thing is something my promoter Golden Boy Promotions would handle. But last time we got a proposal to go to Britain it was nothing but smoke as they made me a poor offer to face Paul McCloskey.”

Last night in Houston, Texas, one of Maidana’s former foes, Erik Morales, did battle against young upstart Danny Garcia on HBO’s airwaves. Maidana was drawn into a firefight with Morales in April of last year at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas but was able to rally late and come away with a majority-decision over the Tijuana trial horse.

Morales had a decent start against Garcia but was ultimately outworked and battered a bit late in the fight with Garcia, as he was floored in the eleventh round while later hearing the scorecards read in favor of his opponent.

Maidana was able to take in the action and feels that Morales, a champion in four weight classes during his career, has come to the end of this line.

“I watched the fight and this time Morales looked washed out,” Maidana added. “He was still a warrior until the end but a much worse version of the Morales [I faced] early last year.”

As for the 24-year old Garcia, now the proud holder of the WBC junior welterweight title, Maidana had no problems giving him respect and would fancy a fight with him, perhaps later in the year.

“He is young and fast and fought and disciplined fight,” Maidana said of Garcia. “He was smart to stick to his game plan at all times.Of course, I would love to unify the titles against Garcia. I really like that fight.”

[QUOTE=DominiBox]After his last performance....Maidana needs to STFU and fight whoever they put in front of him![/QUOTE] There's no reason for Maidana to fight Brook if he's planning to move back down.
