Photos: Marcos Maidana Putting in Work, Awaits Lopez

Photos and Text by Chris Robinson

The next fight for former WBA junior welterweight champion Marcos Maidana looks to be a dandy.

It looks like a near lock that the Argentinean power puncher will be facing off with the very capable Josesito Lopez on April 20th inside of the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

Maidana (33-3, 30 KO's) is coming off of a 3rd round TKO over Angel Martinez in his hometown of Buenos Aires this past December.

One fight prior, Maidana scored a thrilling 8th round TKO victory over Jesus Soto Karass inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. That same September evening, Lopez (30-5, 18 KO's) was stopped in five rounds after moving up in weight to challenge WBC junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

Maidana’s bout with Lopez figures to be a war of attrition and Marcos’ camp with trainer Robert Garcia has already kicked off in Oxnard, as evidenced by the photos.

[QUOTE=Idksab;13085336]Looking forward to a great fight. On another note... When is Josesito going to take an 'easy' fight... At least one where he could be the favorite? Wasn't Haymon managing him now? I'll admit he's probably taking the biggest money…

I really like Josesito, how can you not? But I am a huge Chino fan and don't see this fight ending any other way than a KO victory for MM.
