Marcos Maidana: I'm Open To an Erik Morales Rematch

By John E. Brignone, notifight.com

Argentina's Marcos "El Chino" Maidana is not characterized by making long statements, but when he does speak he does it in a concise and convincing manner. During several interviews, Erik "El Terrible" Morales has claimed that Maidana is not willing to give him a rematch. Maidana won a close twelve round majority decision over Morales in April. During a recent interview on Radio Belgrano, Maidana downplayed the recent accusations from Morales, who claimed Maidana was a "very dirty fighter."

The puncher from Argentina is very open to rematch with Morales, who faces Maidana's countryman, Lucas Matthysse, on September 17th for the vacant WBC 140-pound title. Maidana wished Morales luck in the fight, because he would love a unification rematch at the end of the year.

"I'd like to meet Morales. I disregard their statements. I am very sure of myself. I've always had the same [fighting] characteristics. Beyond that I want him to do well against Lucas Matthysse, because I would like a rematch with Morales. The cancellation of the fight with Robert Guerrero changed my plans a bit," Maidana said.

If Morales wins the WBC tittle expect him to unify vs Khan. Khan has the ridiculous SUPER WBA belt as to Maidanas INTERIM WBA belt.

He has a better chance beating Erik Morales than Amir Khan; smart man.

Morales can NOT fight any better against Maidana than he did in the first fight; Maidana can fight better. Maidana stops Morales in a rematch!

Lucas will go for a money fight for unification with Khan. Don't see him giving Maidana the time of day
