Younger brother of former WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana taking a step up in competition
Fabian Maidana (15-0, 11 KOs) will be taking on former world title challenger Andrey Kilmov in a 10-round, super lightweight bout on the undercard of Mikey Garcia vs Robert Easter Jr.
The younger Maidana will be looking at his toughest fight to date. He’s entering this fight hot off of a TKO victory over Justin Savi back in April.
Kilmov, 35 is coming off of a stoppage victory himself against Ruben Movsesiani. However, said victory followed three consecutive losses to Liam Walsh, Alejandro Luna, and former champion Jose Pedraza.
While Kilmov’s punching power poses little physical threat here, his experience should provide a good litmus test for his young opponent.
This is a chance for both men to make a statement.
