MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Following his twelfth round TKO loss to Miguel Cotto, former two division champion Ricardo Mayorga, 38-years-old, announced that he would retire from boxing. Mayorga was stopped in the twelfth round after suffering a thumb injury on his left hand. He told the referee the thumb injury was preventing him from making a fist. Prior to the thumb injury, Mayorga was dropped by a counter hook.

"I'm going to retire. I think I need to look for a job. I said at the start of this promotion that I would retire from boxing if I lost, and I think it's time to retire. I'm not happy with my performance. As a man, I'm not happy. Miguel Cotto, he hits very hard, but that doesn't scare me," Mayorga said.

I dont know what half these people posting saw, must have been watching two completely different fights.LMAO Mayorga took cotto to the 12th round? Cotto didnt press the issue till they traded in the 12th. Cotto boxed for most of the fight and only momentarily traded at times. That other article w...
