Ricardo Mayorga Attacked and Bloodied at Gas Station - Photo

By Elisinio Castillo

According to sources in Nicaragua, former two-division world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (31-9-1, 25KOs) was attacked and bloodied.

The alleged incident took place at a gas station in Mangua, when Mayorga and an unknown individual got into some type of argument over "waiting at the pump." The unknown assailant then attacked Mayorga with a club and struck him several times, leaving the boxer's face bloodied.

BoxingScene.com reported last month that Mayorga was still pushing to continue his career. He was working out the details for a ring return on December 3rd in Managua, in a fight that would headline an event being promoted by former world champion Rosendo Alvarez, but the ring return never came together.

Mayorga, 43 years old, has been out of the ring since last August, when he was knocked out by Shane Mosley in the rematch which took place at The Forum in Inglewood, California. 

Last month, Mayorga found himself in hot water when he crashed into a taxi.

According to the details claimed by taxi driver Virgilio Robleto, Mayorga was driving a sports car at a high rate of speed and crashed into his right side. The impact totaled the vehicle. The driver wants 200,000 (Mayorga's insurance policy) to settle the issue as the taxi is his only source of income.

"I was making a turn with my taxi. That (night), I was just about to reach the roundabout so I slowed down and I see a sports car (Mayorga) coming at a fast rate of speed, which hit my car on the right side," Robleto said.

"We are making a claim for the insurance policy connected to the car driven by Mayorga, because this will cover all costs. We believe this will be solved in the best way, because in most cases the insurance will react when this type of damage occurs."
