Team Maidana: Brook's Promoter Talking Sh*t About Us

By Edward Chaykovsky

Marcos Maidana’s adviser, Sebastian Contursi, has erupted over some of the recent comments that were made Eddie Hearn, the promoter for undefeated British welterweight Kell Brook.

Hearn made some critical comments about Maidana's refusal to face two of his boxers, Paul McCloskey and Brook. Contursi replied with a fury.

“This guy Eddie Hearn has such a big nose that he sticks it everywhere. But also he has a big mouth, to the extent, that during the post fight press conferences he talks more than the boxers themsleves, like in Kell Brook’s last bout," Contursi told irish-boxing.com.

“All of a sudden this guy seems to become obsessed with Marcos Maidana. First, he tried to make Maidana fight Paul McCloskey in Belfast and then he wanted Marcos to face Brook. After we rejected his offers because he just simply does not have the money - he started talking sh*t about us."

“Last year we’ve talked to Paul McCloskey and his manager Francie and they seem to be very nice people. We told them that we were open to hear a financial proposal. Hearn then told everyone in the UK that he made an irresistible offer when in reality he came up with a mediocre 300K dollars offer plus some TV rights. Maidana made almost three times that money by facing [Devon] Alexander."

They saw Maidana's performance vs Alexander now they wanna lure him to the UK AND another 147 lb fight. My advice is stay in the US and 140 especially for 300k. Cause even tho Maidana was the heavier guy Alexander looked like the bigger one to me.

Maidana's stock is at an all time low and a fight against Brook would almost certainly spell another defeat. He really needs to face a few stiffs over the next 12 months and try to get some momentum going.

[QUOTE=Leohappy]well 300k is a bit low for a big fight, especially when you consider tax deductions.[/QUOTE] An exciting fighter like Maidana deserves more imo.

comment by DoktorSleepless, on 04-09-2012
[QUOTE=cuzzlo] embarassed by Khan early on and a jaded Morales now get back out there for that 300k,[/QUOTE] Yeah, having two fight of the year battles back to back definitely hurt his stock. Just how Arturo Gatti's career went down the tubes after losing to Micky Ward.
