Marcos Maidana May Return in April or May Next Year


    Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Marcos MaidanaMarcos Maidana spent 2014 battling Floyd Mayweather twice. Although he came up short in both instances, he netted career high paydays in both fights. Now it’s onto 2015.

    According to Maidana’s manager, we should expect Maidana back in April or May. Sebastian Contursi told that he met with Al Haymon and a spring return is what they are looking forward too.

    “I had a meeting with Al Haymon last week and we were just talking. There are a lot of big names out there for Marcos, given that he is with Al Haymon,” said Contursi. I didn’t mention anyone in particular and there are no dates; there is nothing firm or planned or no fight so far but when the opportunity arises, we will know.”

    As for the return opponent, Contursi says Maidana just wants big names.

    “You know who Haymon’s fighters are but I didn’t want to talk too long about this name or that name. But there are plenty of them there,” said Contursi. “There’s Danny Garcia, Andre Berto, Amir Khan, Devon Alexander, Keith Thurman. You know, all of them are there and next year, all of them could be potential opponents for Marcos.”

    Al Haymon is very deep in the welterweight division but in 2015 there were plenty of sub-par matchups. Hopefully in 2015, he can match his guys up as all the names mentioned would make good fights and we could get some clarity for potential opponents for his biggest client, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
