Marcos Maidana Knocks Angel Martinez Out in Three
By Jhonny Gonzalez
Former world champion Marcos "El Chino" Maidana stopped Angel "Archangel" Martinez in the third round of their welterweight fight, capturing the Intercontinental welterweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA) at the legendary Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Maidana started slow, but began to open up in the second round. During the third round action, Maidana cornered Martinez and unleashed a left hook to the body that put the Mexican boxer down for the full count.
Maidana's record rises to 33 wins (30 KOs) and 3 losses. While Martinez falls to 13 wins (9 KOs), 4 defeats and 1 draw.
Maidana, who stopped veteran Jesus Soto Karass in September, wants to fight Paulie Malignaggi or Robert Guerrero in 2013.

The only person in boxing who gets up from a body shot like that is Maidana himself.Comment by KayDub on 12-13-2012
[QUOTE=4Corners;12809411]I think Maidana-Thurman is next. That'll be a damn war. Paulie seems content fighting a shot to pieces Mosley, who hasn't looked good in damn near 4 years.[/QUOTE] It wouldn't be a war. I haven't watched this Maidana Martinez fight…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (24)
