Ricardo Mayorga MMA debut 4/27 in Nicaragua
39-year-old former WBA/WBC Welterweight champion and the former WBC light middleweight champion Ricardo Mayorga will make his mixed martial arts debut on Apr. 27, 2013, when he takes on TBA in Managua, Nicaraga.
Mayorga boasted a 29-8-1 boxing record with 23 knockouts over the course of his 11-year boxing career, facing the likes of Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley, Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya and Fernando Vargas. The 39-year-old hasn’t fought professionally in more than two years since suffering a defeat to Miguel Cotto in March 2011.
Back in 2010 May was scheduled to fight Din Thomas under the Shine Fights banner in the United States; however, boxing promoter Don King filed an injunction that prevented the bout.
