Full Version: Does Maidana's New Style, Possibly Keep Khan Further Away?
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing

As we all saw Maidana fight from a new standpoint (using his jab constantly and moving his head), does that keep Khan any further from looking Maidana's way? Judging from his performance in the Alexander fight, which most thought he wouldn't make it in the WW division, people looked at him as a stepping stone for Khan at 147.

At this point, Madiana's new style (though it still a bit of polishing) would give Khan shit at the moment. He obviously still has some pop at 147, so how do you see this rematch going?

Thoughts?

I don't think he will give him a rematch at all for obvious reasons, is there talk or something of this in the makings? It would be a good fight but I think maidana is just a hand full for someone with bad defense and a bad chin and little ring generalship. I wouldnt mind seeing this or the ortiz rematch

Let's see how Khan does with his new trainer. If there's noticeable improvement, then I'd pick Khan. I agree though, Maidana is definitely moving on up to the eastside.

I agree. The Ortiz rematch doesn't sound bad either, but I think Victor will delay it, because Maidana showed that he still crack at 47, more so because he set up his shots and Karass is hittable...just as Ortiz is.

With that in mins, no need for Ortiz to put his jaw in harm's way this soon, and I honestly dont think he's interested in taking a fight any time soon because of the injury. Khan should look the other way. Now, had Marcos looked as bad in the Karass fight, as he did in the Alexander fight, then Im sure Khan would've jumped on that opportunity again at 47.

Moving up to the Eastside?! I LMAO at that! Lol

Maidana is getting better, too bad that he doesn't have the ring intelligence to chase down chickenshit fuckers of Khan's caliber. So, more than likely, we will see shades first fight in a few rounds, where Khan just pitty-pat punched and circled him. Imagine if Maidana had some of the same skills in the first fight. LOL

That's a great point about ortiz and his defence, which is validated through the fact that he is looking at mayweather sr for training. They are suppose to have a light workout and meeting this week. Oscar supposedly recommended him to victor

maidana definitely showed me stuff i haven't seen him do before. i don't know that he picked that up working with roberto garcia though. that may have been some skills buried deep inside of him from argentina. whatever the case...i like what i saw.

amir should steer clear of maidana for now and get himself a few wins under his belt with his new trainer before he thinks about making another run for it. the problem is see is that he and his ppl are going to want to get paid the big money he's been making...and to get that money, u have to take risks. right now, money should be his last concern. virgil is the kind of guy that can give him the missing ingredients...but that's going to take some stepping back and rebuilding foundation. that means flying off the radar for a little bit. in the end...it'll be worth it. the real question is...'do he and his ppl understand that and are they willing to sacrifice to make that happen?' sometimes u have to take a few steps back and a few to the side...just so u can move up further.

that's a great move on his part. that chin is never going to be the same.
