Ricardo Mayorga's Wife Denies Fighter Was Drunk in Photo

By Elisinio Castillo

The social networks were running wild after some pictures appeared of former world champion Ricardo Mayorga, where the boxer was allegedly out cold from a night of drinking, sleeping at the side of a gas station. 

Mayorga, who is a candidate for the position of mayor in Managua, finds himself in this type of scandal for the second time in recent years.

According to the wife of the boxer, Herenia Silva, the photo being circulated is 4 years old, and it was taken after a long walk to a clinic in Granada, because their son was ill.


While some claim the photo was taken near a gas station, others state the photo was taken in front of Plaza Spain in the capital of Managua, after Mayorga locked himself out of his car by leaving the keys inside the vehicle. After being unable to recover the keys, he preferred to sleep on the street.

What is not known is who took these pictures and made them public.

Mayorga's wife maintains the photo is old, and advises everyone to carefully review the tattoo on the boxer's left arm - where an individual appears but now has two gloves sticking between them.

Through his Facebook account, former champion Rosendo Alvarez defended Mayorga, and made a call for fans to delete those photos off the internet, to guard the image of Mayorga.

"I remind those who express hatred and political ideology, the world keeps turning and any of us could fall very low inadvertently, contaminated by drugs and alcohol," he wrote. "Please do not collaborate in the self-destruction of a man's life who was the sporting glory of our country."
