Ricardo Mayorga: I Want Antonio Margarito at 160

By Elisinio Castillo

Former two division world champion Ricardo Mayorga (32-9-1, 26 KOs) is pushing to get Antonio Margarito (40-8, 27 KOs) in the ring.

Mayorga returned this past Saturday night in Managua, Nicaragua and stopped Jaudiel Zepeda  (12-18-1, with 9 KOs) of Mexico in the third round. Over 3,000 packed the venue to watch Mayorga perform.

It was Mayorga's first bout since August of 2015, when he was knocked out in a rematch with three division beltholder Shane Mosley.

Margarito, a former welterweight champion, returned last March after being inactive since December of 2011, when he was stopped in his rematch with Miguel Cotto.

In his comeback fight, he got off the floor to win a tough decision over Jorge Paez Jr. Margarito then returned to the ring in August, and won a ten round decision over Canelo's older brother, Ramon Alvarez.

Margarito's next fight was expected to take place in April, but that scenario is looking very unlikely at the moment.

The big question for a Margarito-Mayorga fight is the weight.

Saturday's fight with Zepeda took place at the light heavyweight limit of 175-pounds. And Margarito has been competing at the junior middleweight limit of 154.

Mayorga is willing to come down to the middleweight limit of 160 to make that fight happen.

"Thanks to God and my team, we were in perfect condition [on Saturday]. I want to fight Antonio Margarito from Mexico. I can go down to 160 pounds, I have no problems with coming down to that division," said Mayorga.

Meanwhile, former world champion Rosendo Alvarez, who is promoting the career of Mayorga, said the next fight could come against former world champion Luis Ramon "Yori Boy" Campas. The fight would take place at 170 pounds.

Campas last fought a year ago in Montana. His last three fights were not endorsed by local boxing commissions. His record is 106 wins, 81 KOs, with 17 losses and 3 draws. Campas is riding a five fight win streak.
