Maidana on Petrov, Morales

When Marcos Maidana beat Erik Morales last April 9 in one of the best fights of the year both fighters said they wanted the rematch. While Morales claimed he had won Maidana said otherwise but agreed to a rematch. Now, exactly five months later, that rematch looms again.

After his fight against Robert Guerrero was suddenly cancelled eight days before the scheduled date (August 27) Maidana and his team had to go back to Argentina empty handed, with no money and no dates in the US on the horizon. Maidana badly wanted to fight so a bout in Argentina had to be organize in three weeks. Therefore, “El Chino” Maidana will fight next September 23 in Buenos Aires, Argentina against Russian Petr Petrov (29-2, 13 KOs). (more…)

“I’m expecting Vitali to attack from the first round,” says Roger Bloodworth, trainer of world title challenger Tomasz Adamek (44-1, 28 KOs). “I think that he’s taking Tomek lightly, probably hopes that he can just walk over him. He would like to get a quick KO and I will be surprised if Vitali would decide for controlled, technical fight against Adamek.” Bloodworth gives some interesting, behind the scenes insights into Saturday’s world heavyweight championship clash between his fighter and WBC heavyweight beltholder Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KOs).

Nave relishing underdog role

On September 16th, 50-year-old former WBF welterweight titleholder Paul Nave continues his improbable comeback against an undefeated fighter less than half his age in former accomplished amateur Brandon Hoskins, outdoors at Albert Field Park in San Rafael, California. For Nave, a fighter that beat long odds to decision Greg Haugen for his title back in 1998, the fight marks a return to the familiar role of underdog. Nave (19-8-2, 8 KOs) of San Rafael has gone 4-0 since ending a nine-and-one-half year retirement and felt the time had come to step up the level competition. “The plan was to come back, fight a little more consistently and get in that top shape, get my timing down and then go for it,” says Nave, who will be just days shy of his 51st birthday on fight night. “I’ve had four fights and won all four against average fighters, but the problem is I haven’t been able to keep consistent because of some minor injuries at times.” (more…)
