Marcos “El Chino” Maidana ( 31-2, 28 KO’s ) will take on Devon “The Great” Alexander ( 22-1, 13 KO’s ) in a 10 round welterweight fight taking place on Saturday, February 25 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo. The fight obviously won’t have Maidana’s World Boxing Association (WBA) light welterweight title on the line. Also featured will be Adrien Broner vs. Eloy Perez in a 12 round fight for Broner's WBO Junior Lightweight World Title which is presented in association with R&R Promotions. These are must-win fights for all four fighters and a night boxing fans won’t want to miss. The fights will be broadcast live on HBO's Boxing After Dark at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Alexander has won two controversial decisions in the past year against Andriy Kotelnik and Lucas Matthyse. Alexander, is a talented boxer whose technical accuracy and defensive skill led him to the WBC Super Lightweight World Title in 2009 with a win over Junior Witter. He unified the WBC and IBF World Titles seven months later with a technical knockout win over Juan Urango. Although he lost his belts in January of 2011 against Tim Bradley, Alexander bounced right back in June with a 10 round win over tough Argentinean Lucas Matthysse. Now, he looks to conquer a new weight division as he moves up to welterweight to tackle Matthysse’s countryman Maidana and please his hometown fans in the Gateway City where he has compiled an 8-0 record.
Maidana, who is one of the most feared punchers in the game. Firmly cemented amongst the 140-pound weight class elite, Santa Fe’s Marcos “El Chino” Maidana made it two for two in 2011 with a win over future Hall of Famer Erik “El Terrible” Morales in a “Fight of the Year” candidate in April that earned him the interim WBA Super Lightweight World Title and then followed that victory up with a blistering fourth round knockout over Petr Petrov in September in Argentina. Now looking for nothing but big fights in 2012, Maidana will compete in a new weight class as he takes on former World Champion Alexander in an intriguing clash of boxer vs. banger.
