Mayorga: I Would Have Did What Mayweather Did

By Ryan Burton
 
Former world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga was on hand at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to watch Floyd Mayweather's controversial fourth round knockout of WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz.  he knockout punches were deemed dirty by some observers but Mayorga felt the punches were clean and perfectly legal.  He said that the knockout  was Ortiz's own fault.
 
"I would have done the same thing Floyd did. That was clean.  It wasn't dirty at all.  It was his (Ortiz) fault.  He dropped his gloves and got hit. He shouldn't have let is guard down."
 
In his long career career Mayorga has faced fighters such as Oscar de la Hoya, Tito Trinidad, Shane Mosley and Vernon Forrest. When he looks at the sports current crop of fighters he regards Mayweather as the best pound for pound fighter in the world. 

"Mayweather is the best pound for pound fighter out there by far.  No one can beat him."
 
Mayorga last fought in March when he suffered a twelfth round knockout loss to Miguel Cotto.  The outspoken Nicaraguan went on to say that he wants to return to the ring soon but that he didn't have any fights lined up.  Earlier this year there were rumors that he may face WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. down the line.

 "They don't want that fight.  They know I will beat him.  He (Chavez) is scared of me.  He knows what I will do to him," said Mayorga.
