According to Marco Maidana, the WBA junior welterweight champion, Amir Khan, is using his legal team to avoid a possible fall rematch. They fought in December in a "Fight of The Year" twelve round rumble, which Khan won by decision. In April, Maidana won a twelve round majority decision over Erik Morales to become the WBA's interim champion, and Khan's mandatory. Maidana is looking to return in August or September and talks are ongoing for either Robert Guerrero or rematch with Morales.

"We're in negotiations. [It could be] be Guerrero or Morales in August or September....not Khan, who proves to be scared of me again. I'm told Khan is using lawyers to put pressure on the WBA in order to avoid his mandatory bout with me in September," Maidana stated.
