By Team Maidana
After learning in the media that WBA regular Super Lightweight champion Amir Khan would be facing either Zab Judah or Robert Guerrero next July 23rd, Team Maidana Team wants to contact Team Khan in order to coordinate details of the ceremony in which Mr. Khan will have to hand out his title to Mr. Maidana.
In order to avoid Mr. Khan any inconvenience as he would probably be in training camp at the time and we do not intend to cause any distractions to him Team Maidana wants to inform that we will be more than happy to receive the WBA title from Mr. Khan’s own hands either in London or Manchester in the always lovely England. Otherwise, we are willing to organize a big party in Argentina for which, of course, we would pay all travel expenses for Mr. Khan and companions.
Hoping to have an answer from Team Khan as soon as possible, we send them our best regards.
“According to WBA rules Khan has to face his mandatory challenger, who happens to be Marcos Maidana, by September 11, 2011 and he cannot fight anyone else 60 days before that date. Team Khan and Golden Boy Promotions have been notified already as we have too,” explained Maidana’s advisor Sebastian Contursi.
“We cannot force Khan to give Maidana his deserved 2010 Fight of the Year rematch. In fact, we think he will never dare to enter a ring with Maidana again. However, if Khan wants to keep his title and, specially, his honour intact, he will have to do it. Otherwise, he should resign the title and we’ll look for another opponent,” Contursi added.
