Ricardo Mayorga To Return, Eyes Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

By Pablo Fletes,

Former world champion Ricardo Mayorga (29-8-1, 23KOs) told Radio 580 that next week he will travel to Miami, Florida, to sign the contract for his upcoming fight with Don King Productions. Mayorga, who has not fought since March of last year when he was knocked out by Miguel Cotto, told the show that he wants to fight Mexico's Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (45-0-1, 31KOs). Mayorga must be walking around heavy because he wants to face Chavez at a catch-weight of 165-pounds, which rules out the possibility of fighting for the WBC's middleweight title. Mayorga has fought as high as 164, when he decisioned Fernando Vargas in 2007.

I agree that ricardo will be a very live underdog. chavez doesnt train well and would take mayorga lightly(as most would at this stage) Mayorga would give jr a hell of a fight aswell as a killer press con. We…
