Maidana Eyes Malignaggi, Guerrero - But Not Matthysse

By Nicolas Samuilov, notifight.com

Marcos "El Chino" Maidana is focused on this Wednesday's fight at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires. He faces Mexico's Angel "Archangel" Martinez for the Intercontinental welterweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA). "El Chino" (32-3, 29 KOs) wants the biggest fights possible after getting Martinez (13-3-1, 9 KOs) out of the way. Maidana was last in the ring on September 15th in Las Vegas, when he stopped Jesus Soto Karass.

"I feel very good. Recently had the fight with Soto Karass. After just two short weeks I took off and I resumed training. Next year I want to fight for the welterweight world title. For me, I'll face any of the champions whether it's [WBA champion] Paul Malignaggi or [WBA interimchamp] Robert Guerrero. There are a few names. I want to fight the best. I am fighting for the WBA title [on Wednesday], so if its for the WBA title, then its better," Maidana said.

Maidana is not even thinking about a potential fight with junior welterweight countryman Lucas Matthysse. Maidana's adviser, Sebastian Contursi, says the fight could possibly happen down the line.

"It seems to me that sooner or later they will fight. In the United States we get asked about it every fifteen minutes. Now, the truth is that we never received an offer [to face him], whether formal or informal. I want to clarify this because [they] were saying otherwise. Put the offer on the table and lets discuss it. There is another obstacle, but a salvageable one, which is the weight. I think it can be done, either in the U.S. or in Argentina. And I know that HBO and Showtime are very interested," Contursi said.
