Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana gets the classic treatment on Solo Boxeo this Saturday night


It was the Boxing Writers Association of America’s “Fight of the Year” in 2010 and on Saturday, December 8, nearly two years to the day after this epic battle took place in Las Vegas, TeleFutura’s “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” Classics is pleased to present a replay of the 12-round battle between Amir “King” Khan and Marcos “El Chino” Maidana for the WBA Super Lightweight World Championship on TeleFutura beginning at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Currently preparing for his December 15 showdown against undefeated Carlos Molina at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles, Calif., British superstar Khan cemented his place on the pound for pound list on December 11, 2010, when he defended his WBA Super Lightweight World Title against the hard-hitting Argentinean Maidana.

Early on, Khan controlled the fight with his speed and crisp punching, but the iron-chinned Maidana took everything Khan could throw at him and as the fight progressed, it became a fight to remember. Though Khan was forced to survive some rough moments in the late rounds, his courageous stand and early lead allowed him to win a close, but unanimous decision over Maidana in a bout that was celebrated around the world.
