Ricardo Mayorga Returns! Three Fight Plan in The Works

By Miguel Rivera

Former two division champion Ricardo Mayorga spoke to reporters in Nicaragua and the undpredictable fighter is going to return to boxing. Last Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mayorga was stopped in the twelfth round by WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto. Afterwards, Mayorga said he was planning to retire. Those plans have been quickly reversed.

Mayorga told news agency EFE - "I'm going to take two easy fights, and then I'll return against someone tough." Mayorga advised his promoter Don King, that he wants two easy fights, possibly in Managua, and then "a tough test."

Mayorga, 38 and a record of 28-9, left Las Vegas as a retired boxer, but he arrived at Managua International Airport with a change of heart on his future.

If he get's the easy fights that he wants, I think he may call out cotto for a rematch.

I dont understand why anyone would be againt Mayorga fighting again unless they were worried about his health. The more exciting fighters there are in the sport the better.

[QUOTE=Darkstar;10236543]Would be nice to see him go out on a win. He always fought the elite of the elite. Came up just short against the top .0001% of boxers. He could have won a belt and did a Roy Jones…
