Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31KOs) can redeem himself by avenging the worst loss of his career, which came at the hands of Devon Alexander in February of 2012.

Maidana pulled off a shocking upset last Saturday night, when he upset Adrien Broner over twelve rounds at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

One week prior to Maidana's triumph, Alexander was upset in another unexpected outcome - as Shawn Porter (23-0-1, 14KOs) outboxed him and won the IBF's version of the welterweight crown. Maidana has the option of facing the man who beat the man.

Porter, and his father/trainer Kenny Porter, were ringside for Maidana's big win - and they advised Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer that a Maidana unification is the fight they want.

"We spoke to Richard Schaefer. I said to Mr. Schaefer 'we want to unify.' He looked at Shawn and said 'you want to unify' and Shawn said absolutely," Kenny Porter said.

"I want that fight, because the inevitable is, once we get that title, there is another guy in the welterweight division [Floyd Mayweather Jr.], who is the king of the welterweight division and also the king of boxing, who will have to take notice."

Hopefully Porter fights clean and goes toe to toe with Maidana. It will be a great fight as long as there's no excessive clinching.

Iv'e got a feeling that Mayweather actually want's the Maidana fight. He was on some "go back to 140" with Broner, instead of encouraging him to take a rematch that he could definitely win. Just a hunch. Call me crazy but either May surprises us with a change of plans for May, or he waits out ...

Porter's team is asking for the right fight...whether he gets it or not is another story....Chino need to cash in on that Broner beating....Porter is solid and would probably out hustle Chino I can see why Team Porter is licking their chops....but Showtime is small time, Chino earned the...
