Ricardo Mayorga vs. Andrey Sirotkin Finalized, Nov. 3 in Russia

By Elisinio Castillo

Former world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga (32-9-1, 26 KOs) has announced that he reached a deal to face super middleweight prospect Andrey Sirotkin (13-0, 3 KOs), also known as "El Toro," in Russia on the 3rd of November.

Mayorga, 43-years-old and a former world champion at welterweight and junior middleweight, comes in with a record of 32 wins, 26 via knockout, 9 losses and a draw.

The controversial Nicaraguan fighter return to the ring in April, at the light heavyweight limit of 175-pounds, and stopped Jaudiel Zepeda in three rounds.

According to Mayorga, he is very confident and prepared to inflict the first defeat to the career of the Russian fighter.

"He is nicknamed the 'Bull' - and I am the 'Matador' - and from there I known what I have to do ... we are going to cut beef that night. I am going to knock him out down. I am going to beat him up," declared Mayorga.

Mayorga's career has been all over the place in the last few years.

His last win of substance came in November of 2007, when he dropped former world champion Fernando Vargas on route to a twelve round decision win at a catch-weight of 164-pounds.

He was knocked out by Miguel Cotto in the twelfth round of their 2011 junior middleweight showdown in Las Vegas and then took a few years off to explore a career in mixed martial arts.

When his MMA career hit a downward spiral, Mayorga returned to boxing in September of 2014. He picked up two wins before getting stopped by Shane Mosley in their rematch on August 29, 2015 in Los Angeles. That was Mayorga's last fight before he fought in April of this year.

Sirotkin, 32 years old, turned pro in 2014 and fought five times in 2016. This will be his third fight of 2017. With only three knockouts on his record, he will be looking to outbox Mayorga in the fight.
