Former champion Ricardo Mayorga (27-7, 23KOs) has continued the insults. Upon arriving to Las Vegas for Saturday's fight against WBA 154-pound king Miguel Cotto (35-2, 28KOs) at the MGM Grand, Mayorga spoke to reporters and attacked Cotto by questioning the boxer's sexuality and stating vowing to end the fight by knockout in four rounds.
Mayorga had questioned Cotto's sexuality in recent weeks. Some of the comments angered Human rights activist Pedro Julio Serrano.
"I'm speaking truth. Cotto is afraid of me. He's in terror and should be sorry for having signed a contract to fight me. The Puerto Ricans are with me and I think Cotto is half gay," Mayorga said. "Personally, he annoys me. I do not like him as the boxer and I am going to remove him of the boxing. I'm going to retire him by knocking him out in four rounds."
