Bundrage-Mayorga Likely Won't Receive IBF's Backing

During his current visit to Nicaragua, Promoter Don King met with President Daniel Ortega and sold the idea of a November show with Ricardo Mayorga facing champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage for junior middleweight crown of the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

Based on his performance against Cotto, he could probably receive approval to face "regular" WBA champion Austin Trout.
