Mayorga More Than Happy To Face Marco Antonio Rubio

Far from being on the horns of a dilemma, former world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (29-8-1, 23KOs) pledges he'll be ready to face Marco Antonio "Veneno" Rubio (59-6-1, 51KOs), the WBC' interim middleweight champion, in late July. The fight would take place on a card that would be organized in Mexico, by Promociones del Pueblo.

Mayorga is one of the frontrunners being considered for Rubio's stay-busy fight. Mayorga, who stepped away from boxing for a stint in MMA, has been in active from boxing since a TKO defeat to Miguel Cotto in 2011.

If Mayorga is selected for Rubio, the WBC would require that he undergoes a series of medical exams to ensure there are no physical dangers.

"I want to win that title and bring it home with me to Nicaragua," said the veteran fighter, in vintage coupe de grace style, at a press conference at a hotel in Managua.

Mayorga announced that he would be training in Las Vegas, Nevada under the command of the trainer Yoel Judah, father of former world champion Zab Judah.

It's always cool when the alphabet boys dream up new ways to further demean the phrase "title defense" by bringing in a guy who hasn't fought in more than three years and hasn't won a legitimate fight since 2007. Rubio…
