Ricardo Mayorga To Return on The Lebdev-Jones Card?

By Alexey Sukachev
 
According to sources, close to Vladimir Hryunov, the internationally active Russian promoter plans to add another stellar fighter to his May 17 show in Moscow, which culminates in the WBA cruiserweight unification between reigning champion Denis Lebedev and WBA champion in recess Guillermo Jones. Another star, who can end up fighting in Russia, is former WBC light middleweight and unified WBA/WBC welterweight titleholder Ricardo Mayorga of Nicaragua (29-8-1, 21 KOs).
 
The 39-year old former champion, who hasn't fought since his bout versus Miguel Cotto in 2011, is considered to be an opponent for rising Russian middleweight Dmitry Chudinov (8-0-1, 5 KOs), who is coming off a one-round annihilation of Columbian Milton Nunez on March 8. He then expressed some desire to take on another Columbian Dionisio Miranda (22-8-2, 19 KOs), who has stopped Chudinov's teammate Oleg Liseev within the same show. Mayorga is being promoted by the same man who handles Guillermo Jones - and his name is Don King.

Mayorga is not even capable of winning a fight at the higher levels anymore. He is passé.

Chudynov is a decent MW prospect and a stright forward slugger with good power and a leaky defense. Sort of a Provodnikov type but maybe a little more boxing skills. Should be a war if it takes place.

[QUOTE=dan_cov;13175739]Thought he was training in MMA and making his debut and Don King was okay about it this time? Either way it'll be good to see El Matador back. Looking forward to his pre fight antics.[/QUOTE] Nah, Don still cack-blocking.........…

I'll tune in whether it's MMA/boxing, El Matador is a G.
