Following Khan being recognised by the WBA as their ‘super’ champion on 23 July, after Marcos Maidana was upgraded from ‘interim’ to ‘second tier’ champion he made his first defence on 23 September when stopping Petr Petrov in the fourth round at the German Gymnastic Club, Villa Ballester, Argentina. Maidana vacated the ‘second tier’ title in July 2012 when moving up a division.

On 22 October, the vacant ‘interim’ title fight between Brunet Zamora and Alberto Mosquera at the Roberto Duran Arena, Panama City, Panama, failed to produce a champion following a 12-round draw.
