Maidana To Khan: Whatever You Are On - Please Stop!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Marcos Maidana is worried about the mental state of former opponent Amir Khan, after reading the recent statements that were made by Khan regarding their 2010 encounter. During a televised interview in Pakistan, Khan described his fight with Maidana as being a little bit more one-sided than people remember.

"Maidana was a fight where everybody said 'Amir is going to lose the fight.' I had everyone against me. They said 'he's going to get beat.' It wasn't bringing me down morally. I just had to prove something to people, prove everyone wrong. It's sometimes good to be the underdog because you get to prove everyone wrong. I went in there and beat this guy quite easily, by knocking him down and made him look silly," Khan told Pakistan Today.

"I won that fight and the last fight against Devon Alexander, a lot of people thought I was going to lose against him, because he's a three time world champion and I'm a two time world champion. But we looked so good against him and beat him punch perfect."

Khan did drop Maidana pretty hard in the first with a bodyshot and then outboxed the Argentine puncher in several of the rounds that followed. As the fight entered the championship rounds, Maidana began to stage serious rally and had Khan in all sorts of trouble in the tenth round. He had Khan ready to go and the referee was already getting in position to jump in, but Maidana didn't have enough energy to put Khan away. Khan survived the next to two rounds to win a close twelve round unanimous decision with scores of 113-112, 114-111 and 114-111.

Khan is chasing a fight with WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs) in 2015. Maidana gave Mayweather two tough fights in 2014.

Maidana reacted to Khan's statements on the social networks and posted a photo to remind Khan just how easy their 2010 meeting was.

"Amir, Happy New Year, but please whatever you are on - stop doing it. It's not making you good," Maidana wrote.

Fair play, I give you the McCloskey point...However against a fighter such as Khan, who has a suspect chin and very poor knockdown recuperation all you need is a puncher's chance. Garcia and Prescott put Khan on Pluto, there was…
