Review: 2012-09-15, great performance by Marcos Rene Maidana and Jesus Soto Karass: high pace, tough and very exciting fight with one knockdown and some heavy exchanges, it could be a candidate for Fight of the Year 2012, five stars! Marcos Rene Maidana (31-3-0) entered as the No.14 welterweight in the world while Jesus Soto Karass (26-7-3) entered as the No.47. Maidana vs Karass is valid for the vacant WBA Inter-Continental welterweight title; undercard of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs Josesito Lopez. Watch the video!
