Ricardo Mayorga Crashes Into Taxi, Pursued For 200K in Damages

By Elisinio Castillo

Former world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (31-9-1, 25KOs) is in a bit of hot water, once again. The boxer was involved in car accident Granada, Colombia.

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.

A verdict on this case is expected shortly from the traffic police.

"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."

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Mayorga is working out the details for a ring return on December 3rd in Managua, Nicaragua. The fight would headline an event being promoted by Bufalo Boxing Promotions, which is run by former world champion Rosendo Alvarez.

Mayorga 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.

Maybe Don King who has always had a fetish for Mayorga will bail him out of this.
