From his training camp in the city of Rafaela, a province of Santa Fe, WBA "regular" junior welterweight champion, Marcos "El Chino" Maidana enters the final stretch of his preparation to face Petr "The Czar" Petrov on Friday the 23rd of September at the German Society Villa Ballester in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
"This training camp has been very long. I've been locked up for like four months, but I'm not complaining, quite the opposite. I'm excited because I'm about a week away before the fight with Petrov, "said world champion.
"I feel great because so many people called us and told us they will attend our event to show their support. I want to give a great fight and hopefully I can win by knockout, because that's what people want," added "El Chino."
"A lot of people talk to me about Khan, Morales and Ortiz, but I've told them that I do not underestimate anyone. And least of all Petrov. We are going to have a tough fight and we must deal with everything," Maidana said.
