Amir “King” Khan (23-1, 17 KOs), only 23 years old, already has sailed to the heights of the amateur and professional boxing world, however he is far from finished on his quest to becoming the best of his era. An accomplished amateur who earned a Silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics at just 17 years old, the Bolton, England native took the professional game by storm in 2005 and with the exception of a brief bump in the road in 2008 when he was upset by Breidis Prescott, Khan has since been unstoppable. A World Champion since 2009, when he defeated Andreas Kotelnik in July of that year, Khan has since defended his crown twice, stopping Dmitriy Salita (TKO1) and Paul Malignaggi (TKO11) in impressive fashion. Now he’s ready for his greatest challenge in Maidana.

A hard-hitting battler from Santa Fe, Argentina, 27-year-old Marcos Rene “Chino” Maidana (29-1, 27 KOs) paid his dues on the local circuit in Argentina before getting his shot at the big time in 2009 when he faced Kotelnik for the WBA Super Lightweight World title. After 12 hard-fought rounds, Maidana lost a controversial split decision, but just four months later, he scored an impressive technical knockout win over highly-touted contender “Vicious” Victor Ortiz for the interim WBA World title. Maidana has been even more impressive in his subsequent bouts as he has defended the interim crown against William Gonzalez (KO3), Victor Cayo (KO6) and DeMarcus Corley (W12). All of that is well and good, but all along he has said that what he really wants is to capture the WBA title with a win over Khan, and he’ll get his chance on December 11.

WBA super lightweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KOs) won a twelve round firefight against WBA interim super lightweight titleholder Marcos Maidana (29-2, 27 KOs) on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. It looked like an early night when Khan dropped Maidana with two hellacious body shots at the end of round one. Khan punished Maidana further in round two, but the rock hard Maidana kept coming. Maidana was the aggressor in round three applying heavy pressure. Maidana was deducted a point by referee Joe Cortez for throwing an elbow in round five. Maidana was relentless and found a home for his uppercut in round seven. Khan rallied in the eighth as his speed and ring movement allowed him to avoid exchanges. Maidana got to Khan in the tenth and battered him all over the ring. It was a battle of attrition in the eleventh with fighters both having their moments. Maidana desperately went for the knockout in round twelve, but Khan weathered the storm. Scores were 114-111, 114-111, and 113-112.
