Marcos "Chino" Maidana's adviser Sebastian Contursi has advised BoxingScene.com that his fighter is targeting a late summer return to the ring.
Maidana had a busy stretch, facing Adrien Broner and Floyd Mayweather twice in less than a year's time and is currently taking a break from the ring.
"Marcos had a very busy 9 month stretch with three big fights so he's taking a well deserved rest. He's going to marry his girlfriend in April and we are looking at him returning in August or September," Contursi stated.
As far as potential opponents, Contursi said there aren't any definite plans but revealed one name that interests Maidana.
"The only name that Marcos has mentioned is Danny Garcia. That is a fight he really wants and I think it would be a very good fight," Contursi told BoxingScene.com. "Being that Garcia beat (Lucas) Matthysse it would be looked at in Argentina as a revenge fight even though it really isn't."
Garcia returns on April 11th and will face Lamont Peterson at a catchweight of 143 pounds. Garcia's most recent fight was also at a catchweight so a move to welterweight where Maidana campaigns will likely take place in the near future.
Both fighters are aligned with powerful adviser Al Haymon which makes the potential fight a more likely possibility.
