How worthy is Maidana?
Marcos Maidana is a 30 year old with a career record of 35-3, 31 KOs. His most recent victory came on 12/14/2013 as he surprised the heavily favored Adrien “The Problem” Broner en route to an easy UD victory.
In 2007 Maidana was considered by many as one of the most promising young stars in the sport. He has since lost three professional fights (2 of which are considered highly controversial decisions) but has maintained a reputation for always bringing the fight to his opponents regardless of the circumstances. Marcos is known for his toughness and punching power inside the ring.
