Ricardo Mayorga Will Return To The Ring on February 18

By Elisinio Castillo, Pablo Fletes/Notifight.com

According to former champion Rosendo Alvarez, Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (31-9-1, 25KOs) will return to the ring as part of a card being staged on February 18th in Managua, Nicaragua.

The card is being promoted by Alvarez's promotional company, Bufalo Boxing Promotions. 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.

Last month, the former two division champion was attacked at a gas station in Nicaragua. He's looking for one more major - fight and recently called for clash with UFC champion Conor McGregor.

Mayorga, 44-years-old, wants to match his skills against McGregor, who made an unexpected move by obtaining a boxing license in the state of California. 

Since 2015, McGregor has discussed the idea of showcasing his skills in a boxing ring, especially in a potential a fight with retired former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"McGregor, I admit that he's has been very good at mixed martial arts, but in boxing he is making mistakes ... As soon as I grab him, I'm going to break him down, I'm going to disintegrate him," Mayorga said.

"If you are looking for me, you will find me. I have not fought, as they say, with [scrubs and journeymen], with a ghost record like [McGregor] has. But if he wants to fight and he's looking for me - he's going to find me. Let him tell me when he wants us to fight and where he wants to do it."

"In boxing, when we step in the ring - he's going to know that I'm a man and he's a woman. McGregor is wide open when he fights ... I'm going to lower his jaw to his navel, so he learns to fear me and shows respect."

"I'm going to exterminate that clown fast. He's going to be very sorry, because in the sport of boxing he is not on my level. I do not feel old or defeated. I know I can play with that bearded man ... and I'll send him back to Mixed Martial Arts and that's where he should be."
