Amir Khan expresses interest for rematch with Maidana
ISLAMABAD: British boxer of Pakistan-origin Amir Khan welcomes a rematch with former two-division world champion Marcos Maidana if he comes out of his six-year retirement to resume his career.
The 36-year-old Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) is training for an exhibition match against a 47-year Argenitinan kickboxer.
If Maidana looks good at beating the guy, which will take place in a boxing ring, then he could restart his career.
Khan and Maidana spoke this week during a conference call for the 99th WBA Convention. During the call, the 33-year-old Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) expressed interest in facing Maidana, who he beat ten years ago by a 10 round unanimous decision in December 2010. Khan knocked Maidana down with a body shot in round one. The fight took place in the 140-pound division.
“Tell Maidana, let’s do it. Let’s do another fight. Come on, let’s do it again,” said Khan on a conference call for the 99th WBA Convention, as quoted by www.boxingnews24.com.
“Everybody loved the first one, so let’s do it again. It would be a fun fight, you know? It would be a fair fight again, so let’s do it. One condition. You let Alex (Ariza) train me,” said Khan.
There would be a tremendous amount of interest from boxing fans in a Khan vs. Maidana rematch. - APP
