Junior Welterweight 28 2 0 (27)
Last Year s Ranking: Unranked
Status Report: Maidana has gotten a lot of mileage out of his thrilling win over Victor Ortiz in 2009 (KO 6) and followed it with victories over William Gonzales (KO 3), Victor Cayo (KO 6) and DeMarcus Corley (W 12). He s neither the most skilled guy out there nor the fastest, but he s tough as hell and hits like a middleweight. Ask Amir Khan (L 12), who barely got out of the 10th round in their war in December.
Future: Maidana will be a player at 140 for as long as he wants.
