Shocker: Marcos Maidana Withdraws From Bradley Fight

RANCHO MIRAGE, CALIF. – World Boxing Association interim super lightweight champion MARCOS "El Pollo" MAIDANA pulled out of his fight against undefeated World Boxing Organization junior welterweight champion TIMOTHY “Desert Storm” BRADLEY today.  The public news conference scheduled for Tuesday, May 4 at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif. is canceled.

Gary Shaw, who co-promotes Bradley with Thompson Boxing Promotions, received a call from Eric Gomez, Vice President/Matchmaker of Golden Boy Promotions, Maidana's co-promoter, moments ago informing him that Maidana was pulling out of the fight.

 "Eric told me Maidana missed his flight to the U.S. and later in the same conversation told me Maidana's back was still injured and that he would not be fighting Timmy on July 17," said Shaw.  "Obviously Maidana's back was not getting any better and a call to us last week from Team Maidana would have been the professional thing to do.  But HBO and Agua Caliente are standing behind Timmy and his July 17 date, and I expect to announce Timmy's new opponent soon."   

Phil Cooper, executive director of marketing for Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa said the development is a disappointment: "Certainly this is not what we expected, however we're excited about what Gary has in the works.
