Marcos Maidana Says He is No Longer Coming Back To Boxing

By Elisinio Castillo

Former two division world champion Marcos "Chino" Maidana has been flipping back and forth, between coming back to the ring and staying in retirement.

Two months ago, Maidana, 35-years-old, announced that he was returning to the ring and signed a multi-fight agreement under the Premier Boxing Champions banner.

Maidana had been out of the ring since September of 2014, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather in their rematch.


Maidana flew to Las Vegas and was working hard with strength and conditioning coach Alexa Ariza.

After gaining a lot of weight during his retirement, Maidana was able to shed around 44-pounds in the weeks of work - and he was planning to have at least three fights in 2019.

After two months of working hard and sharpening up his reflexes, it appeared that Maidana was actually serious about his return.

But for whatever reason Maidana interrupted the training camp he was doing in Las Vegas, and arrived back in Argentina and told local reporters that he will not return to boxing.

The fighter from Santa Fe arrived to the International Airport of Ezeiza and confided briefly to the local affiliate of Fox Sports, stating: "I'm retired from boxing. It's not that I don't feel capable, but there were things that were not right and I have decided not to come back."

The native of Margarita had begun training two months ago and was targeting the vast majority of the PBC welterweight stable - which includes WBC champion Shawn Porter, WBA champion Keith Thurman, IBF champion Errol Spence, Manny Pacquiao, Danny Garcia, Yordenis Ugas, and several others.
