Argentina’s Marcos Maidana is now back at training 20 days after he lost a controversial split decision against WBA Super Welterweight champion Andreas Kotelnik from Ukraine in Rostock Germany. Although he admits it was quite a competitive fight, Maidana (25-1, 24 KOs) is still upset about the decision of the two European judges (Jean Louis Legland and Paul Thomas) that gave the nod to Kotelnik by one and two points, respectively. “I know I didn’t lose the fight. And many people agree with me. I put all the pressure and hit him with the best punches during almost the whole bout. I’ve read that Kotelnik himself has said in a recent interviews that when a fight is close the judges have to award the champion. I respect Kotelnik as a good champion but he knows that it shouldn’t work that way,” Maidana said. “However, I’m thankful at the WBA as in their lastest ranking they’ve kept in the #2 spot. That means that I may another chance very soon, which is exciting. That’s why the Kotelnik loss is now water under the bridge for me. I’ve rested two weeks and I’m already back at the gym. If I was fit 100% last time, I’ll be prepared 110% the next one,” ‘El Chino’ added.
