Marcus Maidana, a 12 round points winner over DeMarcus Corley on Saturday night, has made it clear he wants to face WBA junior-welterweight champion Amir Khan on December 11.
Following his win over Corley, the Argentine WBA junior-welterweight interim champion said in a statement: “I will saying as many times as necessary ‘cause I don’t want the boxing fans to be tricked by Khan’s team’s statements. I always want to face Khan and they ran away from me. Now it’s the time, so let’s make it.
“I made it clear that it’s a lie that I was offered to fight Khan last July. I was offered to face Bradley back then and I had to decline because my former manager offered me little money for it and he was the one who lied about me having a back injury. But that’s water under the bridge. Now Khan has to fight or otherwise quit his title and recognize that I’m the absolute champion.”
