Mayorga Says He is Signing Canelo Contract on Tuesday

By Osman Rodriguez

Former two division champion Ricardo Mayorga (29-8-1, 23KOs) appeared on television network Channel 12 in Nicaragua and claims to be the selected opponent of WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs) on the 15th of September at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the interview, Mayorga states that he's traveling over to the United States on Tuesday to sign the bout agreement. He promised to the win the title and then hand it over to Daniel Ortega, the President of Nicaragua. He already started training for the fight, according to the boxer.

"I'm going to stop him in five rounds. I will knock Canelo out to win another world title and present President Daniel Ortega with the belt," Mayorga said.

Mayorga, 39-years-old, has been inactive since the twelfth round knockout loss to Miguel Cotto from last March in Las Vegas.

As of Friday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission was unaware of Mayorga being secured for the fight. 

And Mayorga is known to stretch the truth - as he claimed last year to be in line for fights with middleweight champions Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Felix Sturm.

There are at least two other fighters claiming to be the selected opponent of Canelo, so it remains to be seen on who the final name will be.

[QUOTE=budfr;12313849]Listen foolz, Canelo tried to fight P williams, Kirkland and Ortiz but you know the stories. What´s the big deal about Lara?? He lost to Molina but was awarded a win. Even Kirkland lost to a feather-fisted 40 year old.…

Canelo is 40 fights in he doesn't need anymore bull**** opponents!!! His protected record just becomes more obvious with every fight. I'd love to see him finally fight someone. I believe Martirosyan Vanes would beat him fairly easy. That Mayorga…
