Would absolutely love to see Maidana/Berto.

I do think Maidana backed out of the fight on such short notice (think less than a month away, he decided to pull out) because he realized Thurman was a "high risk, low reward" fight. I don't know, just doesn't seem like a move the Maidana I had grown to appreciate would do.
He basically said "I don't want to take a risk unless it's a high profile fight."
But I guess all boxers are the same when it comes to money, and "boxing being a business first."
I am still disappointed in Maidana for not taking the fight. . . And I also think Maidana destroys Thurman; I'm not impressed with Thurman at all - he's slow, crude, lacks fundamentals, defense, and really has overrated power too. He's an awkward KO waiting to happen.
