Maidana said the Broner rematch is part of his comeback fight plan, Broner keeps getting lucky with his chances he could win and set up a trilogy, hope Maidana can at least get to 80% of how he was

When you do high cardio, you are bound to get yourself out of shape.

I’m Not a boxer but I’m going through the same thing.

Easy to let yourself go and we’ve seen this a million times
Never compare yourself to an athlete lol Maidana trained hard for years so he let himself go by eating alot of junk food, you have no excuse to eat so much junk food LOL

Yeah, I have a feeling Broner's getting his win back if that happens. If it is the plan, hopefully Maidana loses to some nondescript journeyman and promptly retires again before that rematch...

Ffs didnt think of this, Khan will start calling him out soon
It's a good fight I think.
Khan is way past it. With all the time off and blowing up in weight Maidana could be shot to shit. But he's still a tough bastard and will always bring that to the table.
A less mobile, more hittable, slower Khan would be easier to deal with for Maidana and a win will put some credibility into his come back.

Former two division world champion Marcos "Chino" Maidana is planning to return to the ring for a special attraction bout against Jorge "Acero" Cali, a former world kickboxing champion, in a fight that will be governed by the rules of boxing.

The contest is taking place at a catch-weight around the cruiserweight limit. The contract signing will take place on Friday, November 15 at the Faena Hotel, in Puerto Madero.
The return of the Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) will take place on April 4 or 11 in 2020, at a venue to be defined, in a five round contest, with the rounds being three minutes long.

The cross-sport bout could lead to another fight with more meaning, admits his manager. But that all depends on Maidana's desire to continue fighting.

"Maidana returns to boxing because he accepted the challenge of 'Acero' Cali. They have been trading messages and videos since January of this year, before Marcos left for the United States to prepare for the return that did not happen. This is serious," Ernesto Ricci, manager of Maidana, confirmed to Télam.

Maidana's manager further stated that this return "is a way to say goodbye to the fans of Argentina, something he could not do. With Marcos, nothing is ever final. Perhaps when dusting off the gloves he gets bitten by the bug and goes for a world-class opponent. Offers [for high profile fights] are not lacking. The only thing I can tell you is that there are no miracles in boxing."

Maidana, 36-years-old, has been retired since losing his second fight against Floyd Mayweather, on September 13, 2014. Cali is pushing 47-years-old, although he is in great shape for his age.

The fighter from Santa Fe had started training at the beginning of February 2019 for his return to boxing.
However, at the end of April, after an intense preparation under the orders of physical trainer Alex Ariza, Maidana decided to return to Argentina and reconsider his decision to return to fight "because there were things that were not right" with the deal he reached with Premier Boxing Champions.

Hopefully this is just him having a fight to say goodbye to his Argie fans.
