Photos: Marcos Maidana Resurfaces in The United States

SAN ANTONIO - Former two-division world champion Marcos Maidana has been inactive since September of 2014. The fighter has been relaxing back home in Argentina and spending his hard earned money from the back to back fights with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

On Saturday night, he was present in the state of Texas to support his younger brother - rising prospect Fabian Maidana (10-0, 7 KOs) - who scored a seventh-round technical knockout victory over Jorge Maysonet Jr. (13-2, 11 KOs) Saturday night in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on NBCSN from the Scottish Rite Auditorium in San Antonio.

The Argentine-slugger overcame a slow start and a first-round bloody nose for a sensational one-sided beat-down of the Puerto Rican brawler Maysonet, who failed to answer the bell for the seventh round of Saturday's main event.
Referee Rafael Ramos, acting on the advice of Maysonet's corner, called the fight as Maidana dominated the punch stats with a 60-22 advantage in overall punches, 49-15 in power shots, and 11-7 in jabs.

Maysonet came to fight and pressed Maidana from the beginning, eventually, nailing Maidana with a right hand to the nose that opened up a steady flow of blood.
Sensing the urgency, Maidana stormed back in the second, rocking Maysonet with a right hand, left hook combination with just over 10 seconds to go in a round in which he out-landed Maysonet 12-4 in power shots.
Maidana's kept up a versatile attack in the third round using head movement, stick-and-move tactics and a varied assortment of punches to keep up his advantage over Maysonet.
Maidana turned the match in his favor in the next round, delivering an impressive battering of Maysonet over the final 20 seconds of the round.
The Argentine was even more dominant in the one-sided fifth and sixth rounds, doubling up on his hooks, firing straight rights and landing head-snapping shots that began the demise of a fading Maysonet.

[QUOTE=Mastrangelo;16893633]When he was active fighter I never understood why they call him "Chino" - but now as he's chubby he indeed has more of an Asian look, somehow.[/QUOTE] Maybe he has Japanese ancestors. There are Japanese immigrants in Argentina (but…
