Ricardo Mayorga VS Miguel Cotto Update and Prediction

Ricardo Mayorga emerged from a white SUV in downtown Ocala on Tuesday with a lit cigarette hanging from his lips.

He yawned, took a long drag, then ambled across a parking lot toward the front doorway of Danny Santiago’s local gym, Central Florida Boxing.

Just days away from a nationally televised world championship fight, Mayorga hardly looked the part of a polished pugilist.

But that changed quickly when he entered the ring to spar a few minutes later.

His demeanor changed, his brow darkened, and his focus honed in intently on Bobby Bryant, a 19-year-old Ocalan and the day’s sparring partner.

It wasn’t long before Mayorga — a heavy-handed brawler who isn’t big on footwork — methodically walked the game Bryant into a corner and dropped him to the canvas with a left hook.

Tale of the Tape:

Miguel Cotto:
(35-2, 28 KO’s)
Age: 30
Height: 5′ 7″
Orthodox Stance

Ricardo Mayorga:
(29-7-1, 23 KO’s)
Age: 37
Height: 5′ 9″
Orthodox Stance

I may missing this fight live, but I think it has the potential to being the most entertaining fight of the year. I am mildly surprised more people aren’t talking about it.

My logic tells me that Mayorga will start the fight fast and Cotto will be hanging on for life in the first three rounds while doing some damage of his own.

In the middle rounds Cotto’s technique and skill will start taking over and seriously touch up Mayorga.

In the late middle rounds, Mayorga will make one last push, and hurt Cotto, and possibly drop him.

By round 10 Cotto should be punishing a bloodied Mayorga on the ropes and the ref should wave it off in a potential for fight of the year honors.

(Keep in mind, this could all happen in a somewhat collapsed time frame.)

The passive boxing fan and boxing writer vastly underestimate Mayorga’s ability (they can only seem to remember him getting chopped up by Oscar De La Hoya. A fight where Mayorga was able to lay some heavy leather). And Cotto’s tendency to be courting disaster at every turn should make this fight worth whatever they are peddling for it.

Mayorga is a 6 to 1 underdog in this one.

However, I have been hearing some rumblings from my sources that he might not be a bad bet (for some reasons I don’t want to publicly mention). But you didn’t hear that from me.

Also, the same night, Sergio ”El Maravilla” Martinez will take on undefeated WBO light middleweight champion Sergiy ”Razor” Dzinziruk of the Ukraine at the Foxwoods Resort Casino, Connecticut. I don’t know much about Sergiy ”Razor” Dzinziruk, except that he has a win over Joel Julio, so I expect Sergio Martinez to win.

Ricardo Mayorga: On How to Talk Sh*t

Ricardo Mayorga: On How to Talk Sh*t

Talking Sh*t really is an artform.

Learn how its done by one of the best of all time, G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member, Ricardo Mayorga:

(Who happens to be fighting another G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member Miguel Cotto, soon).

Only one thing is better than smoking cigarettes at a press conference:

Smoking in the ring after winning a world title and saying F*ck You to a state where smoking is all but illegal:

(And smoking a cigarette after swooping a Brazilian Model of course).

In other news, Simon Black breaks down the War on Drugs:

“Fighting a multi-decades war against plants is just a dumb idea, ranking up there with other such gems as spending our way out of recession, borrowing our way out of debt, and invading other countries to reduce hatred against America.”

Miguel “Junito” Cotto VS Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga

Miguel “Junito” Cotto VS Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga

On March 12th, G Manifesto Hall of Fame members, Miguel “Junito” Cotto and Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga will meet in the ring for what is sure to be a very entertaining battle of Machismo.

The war of words has already begun:

Ricardo Mayorga: “I respect your mother but I don’t want her to suffer anymore. She cannot take any more of those beatings you’ve been taking. I will finish you off and your mother will be in peace at last. This won’t take me long, about four rounds on March 12.”

Miguel Cotto: “You have about seven more weeks to talk. Get it all out. Keep talking. Then we will go into the ring. That’s when your talking stops.”

Some pre-fight action:

Frente a frente Cotto y Mayorga

Ricardo Mayorga: “I’m going to make you think about retirement like Margarito should, after Pacquiao took care of him. I’m going to do the same to you and make you think twice about stepping back in that ring. Don’t let your mom and your family suffer anymore by allowing yourself to continue to take beatings in the ring. Stop making them suffer, I’m going to knock him out and prove to everyone in Nicaragua. First time that I’m fighting someone who is as small as a kid. But the pay-per-view and watch the retirement party for Miguel. I’m going to convince him that he should retire.”

and

“My pants are up higher than Cotto’s. I’m going to be the man, and Cotto will be the woman. On March 12, Puerto Rico is going to be dressed in black for your funeral. I can see fear in your eyes. I will retire you”.

Miguel Cotto: “Welcome all of you to Ricardo Mayorga’s first press conference for his circus,” said Cotto, speaking even as Mayorga continued to taunt him. “When you spoke earlier, I kept my mouth shut, now you remain quiet. I am a professional and with these tiny pants and these tiny hands I beat Shane Mosley. Do you remember Shane Mosley?

And

“Mayorga’s whole career was a joke. I am a gentleman, you (Mayorga) are a joker and a clown. All your (Mayorga) career you have run off at the mouth and in all the big fights you’ve failed. Just so you know who I am, I am a three-time world champion.”

Ricardo Mayorga MMA Update and Classic Fight With Felix Trinidad

Ricardo Mayorga MMA Update and Classic Fight With Felix Trinidad

If you like The G Manifesto, fill out this quick G Manifesto Survey

Here is a little update on hard punching, cigarette smoking, all around playboy and G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member Ricardo Mayorga:

Former two-division titlist Ricardo Mayorga, idle since Shane Mosley stopped him in the 12th round in September 2008, resurfaces May 15 when he moves to mixed martial arts. He faces Din Thomas (trained by 1976 U.S. Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr.) in a three-round bout at 160 pounds in the main event of a pay-per-view card in Fayetteville, N.C. Mayorga’s boxing trash talk has come with him to MMA. “I conquered the world in the boxing ring all the while I was puffing cigarettes and drinking beer, “ Mayorga said. “I won three world title belts and I stood toe-to-toe with so many legends, beating some of them. Vernon Forrest, God rest his soul, was a great boxer yet I beat him back twice. I cannot be denied as I am a force of nature. Now I will shock the MMA fans and I know so many of my fans from boxing will follow me as I expand my repertoire. They can’t deny me in MMA and I will destroy Din Thomas. I am going to smash him. To me, a fight is a fight in a ring, in a cage or on the street. Fighting is my middle name.”

Source

I guess this fight didn’t happen, but still great quotes from Mayorga as per usual.

Here is what he is saying now:

“I can beat the Filipino. If his preference is to fight me, I’m ready. Pacquiao gave and opportunity to to Fight Margarito, and he could do the same for me,” Mayorga commented during a media worked held yesterday at the 5th St. Gym in Miami, Florida.

And:

“Cotto, Pacquiao, any of them will do. Everybody knows Cotto is from Puerto Rico. Cotto is nobody for me. I’m not afraid of anyone. I’ll go to Puerto Rico and fight Cotto there.”

Source

I would pay to see either fight although the Cotto fight would actually make some sense and is guaranteed to be entertaining.

Side Note: The Legendary 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach has recently re-opened and I plan to be there soon. My father, Michael John Mason VI, used to take me there as a young pup and that was where I first met Muhammad Ali (among others). I can’t wait to go back. It’s already locked in stone on my schedule. Congratulations to Angelo Dundee, Ferdie Pacheco, Tom Tsatas, Matt Baiamonte and Dino Spencer for making it happen. This is a huge one in the win column and a true sign that The Apocalypse is Not coming. At least not yet anyway.

Ricardo Mayorga: G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member

Here is a good video of Nicaraguan boxer, wild man, cigarette smoker, and playboy, Ricardo Mayorga: G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member:

You can definetly see how Ricardo Mayorga, who was responsible for The Greatest Moment in California Smoking Ban History, was even more of a threat when he was younger and his speed matched is reckless aggression, iron chin, fearlessness and destructive punching power. (Later in his career, as his speed dwindled, his flaws ie lack of defense, and lack of technique were easier to expose by great boxers like Oscar de la Hoya and Sugar Shane Mosely).

Legend has it that as a young street gang leader on the mean streets of Managua, Nicaragua, he was approached by an older youth wielding a heater on a bicycle. Instead of getting broken, the young Mayorga grabbed the other chico’s toaster, knocked him out and stole his bike. No official word as to whether or not Mayorga also stole his honey.

After getting stopped in his first pro bout and losing two other early fights (one of which he avenged), Mayorga went on a tear to win his first two world titles. He destroyed Andrew “Six Heads” Lewis (an excellent fighter who also happens to have one of the best nicknames in boxing history) and walked over the great Vernon “The Viper” Forrest twice, who was coming off two wins over the great Sugar Shane Mosley, and at the time was thought unbeatable. Then after losing his titles to Cory Spinks, Mayorga was in a modern day classic with Felix Trinidad only to lose by TKO in the 8th.

After the second Forrest win, Mayorga was featured for the first time on the cover of Ring Magazine smoking a cigarette. The cover read “The craziest man in the sport: Mayorga lights up boxing.”

Mayorga’s last great win was a “macho” constest decision over a fading Fernando “The Aztec Warrior” Vargas.

Young G’s are wise to familiarize themselves with The Matador’s catalog of fights.

Supposedly, Mayorga will return to the ring on the undercard of the WBC heavyweight final elimination bout -with the winner earning the right to face Vitali Klitschko- between 2004 Olympic gold medalist and now undefeated Odlanier “La Sombra” Solis (16-0, 12 KOs) and WBC No. 1-ranked Ray “The Rainman” Austin (28-4-4, 18 KOs).

A breakdown of Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito coming soon.
