Marcos Maidana: A special kind of tough

Marcos Maidana - Marcos Maidana

Argentine warrior (warrior with a capital ‘W’) Marcos Maidana is living like a king these days, his wealth and comfort a well-earned result of the blood, sweat and tears he left inside the ring – and the pain he inflicted. Aside from Jose Luis Castillo, did any fighter come closer to beating the sublime Floyd Mayweather; in “El Chino’s” first fight with “Money?”

Marcos Maidana - Marcos Maidana

Just when we thought there was a chance, just a small chance, he might fight again – the rumour mill going into overdrive simply because “El Chino” stepped back into a gym – Argentine warrior Marcos Maidana has made it official: he has retired from the sport he gave so much excitement to, at age 33. The former two-weight champion wrote on social media how he no longer has the fire inside him.

Marcos Maidana thinking possible comeback?

Marcos Maidana - Marcos Maidana

The last time we saw Marcos Maidana in a fight, he was losing his money-spinner of a return meeting with Floyd Mayweather Junior in September of 2014. The next time we saw him after that, in a photo that was widely viewed on the internet, Maidana was carrying plenty of excess weight and had seemingly been enjoying the money he earned in his two big fights with “Money.” it seemed we had seen the ferocious Argentine warrior’s last fight.

But now, in speaking with RingTV.com, Mikey Garcia – himself having a comeback of his own – says he has a feeling Maidana may embark on a ring return some time in the future. Garcia, Ring reports, has been sparring with Maidana’s younger brother Fabian, and he says “El Chino” has expressed interest in returning to the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy to both help his brother and work out and lose some of that excess weight he picked up last year.

Marcos Maidana - Marcos Maidana

A couple of days ago, a photo of Argentine warrior Marcos Maidana surfaced on the internet and it caused quite a response, being re-posted a number of times. Maidana looks very much over his fighting weight in the pic, his stomach bloated and rings of fat evident. Immediately after seeing the picture, fans everywhere came to the seemingly obvious conclusion: the once great action fighter who gave us memorable fights with the likes of Victor Ortiz, Amir Khan, Adrien Broner and, most recently, Floyd Mayweather Junior twice will not be fighting again.
