Mayorga Says Don King Stole His De La Hoya Money

By Miguel Rivera

On Thursday morning in a Miami courtroom, a judge will decide is the Shane Mosley vs. Ricardo Mayorga rematch will go forward next Saturday night at the Forum in Los Angeles, California.

Last week, promoter Don King filed a lawsuit claiming that Mayorga was under contract with him and he is attempting to prevent the fight from happening. He says Mayorga went around him to make a deal with Mosley, who is using his own promotional company to back the pay-per-view card.

Mayorga alleges that King has been robbing him for years and now alleges that King took all of the money from the pay-per-view fight against Oscar De La Hoya in 2006.

"He will not stop the fight. This man is ridiculous, and his time has passed. He just has a desire to disrupt. Has he not stolen enough from me? Like he stole $21 million from the pay-per-view with De La Hoya. He told me it didn't make any money and it was most successful event of the year," Mayorga told ESPN Deportes.

should have read the fine print on the contract. all promoters dig into your payday. these fighters have a lot of people on the payroll, trainers, cutmen, assistants. they also pay a lot of promotional fees and governing body sanctioning…
