Photos: Ricardo Mayorga Leaves To Russia, Vows To Drill Sirotkin

By Elisinio Castillo

Former world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (32-9-1, 26 KOs) has jumped on a plane bound for Russia, as the Nicaraguan madman is going to take part in several pre-fight media events to promote his upcoming fight with undefeated super middleweight prospect Andrey Sirotkin (13-0, 3 KOs), also known as "El Toro." The fight takes place in Russia on the 3rd of November.

The fight  has been sanctioned for the vacant super middleweight silver title of the World Boxing Council.

The boxer's technical team, led by fellow Nicaraguan and former world champion Rosendo Alvarez, are confident of coming home with the victory, as Mayorga had no problems staying close to the weight and trained intensely.

Mayorga, 43-years-old and a former world champion at welterweight and junior middleweight, comes in with a record of 32 wins, 26 via knockout, 9 losses and a draw.

The controversial Nicaraguan fighter returned to the ring in April, at the light heavyweight limit of 175-pounds, and stopped Jaudiel Zepeda in three rounds.

As is his custom, Mayorga has promised to eliminate his rival early.

"I'm going to knock him out in two rounds, but I can do the twelve round distance," Mayorga told reporters before leaving.

Mayorga's last win of substance came in November of 2007, when he dropped former world champion Fernando Vargas on route to a twelve round decision win at a catch-weight of 164-pounds.

He was knocked out by Miguel Cotto in the twelfth round of their 2011 junior middleweight showdown in Las Vegas and then took a few years off to explore a career in mixed martial arts.

Sirotkin, 32 years old, turned pro in 2014 and fought five times in 2016. This will be his third fight of 2017. With only three knockouts on his record, he will be looking to outbox Mayorga in the fight.
