Maidana: If I Face Danny Garcia, Nobody Will Save Him!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-5, 31KOs) is ready to greet Danny Garcia (30-0, 17KOs), who appears to be moving up to 147-pounds by the end of the year.

Maidana has been out of the ring since last September's rematch decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Garcia came back last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where he gutted out a twelve round majority decision over Lamont Peterson.

Even prior to the Peterson fight, Maidana beat the drum for a showdown with Garcia.

Garcia still holds the WBC/WBA world title at junior welterweight. His last two fights have taken place over the division limit and he says the catch-weight limit of 143-pounds for Peterson was a hindering factor in his performance. He sees no reason to remain at 140-pounds.

Maidana sent a message late Saturday, revealing that he's ready to face Garcia next.

"I don’t care who won tonight, but nobody will save Danny if we fight. I’ll give Danny the real welcome to the welterweight division. Let’s do it," Maidana told his followers.

I honestly feel the reason Danny is looking sub par these days is because dude needs to move up and stop killing himself with making the weight. If the Garcia who fought Peterson shows up against Maidana then I am…

It would be a good back and forth battle for a few rounds, but eventually Danny's chin would finally fail him IMO. It would be an interesting fight though.
