About Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga
Nicaraguan born, Ricardo Mayorga is about as decorated as any professional combatant can get. Mayorga is the former WBA/WBC Welterweight champion and the former WBC Junior Middleweight champion. Holding a fair record of 29-7 with 23 knockouts and 1 draw, Mayorga’s orthodox boxing style has contrasted with his unorthodox style outside of the squared circle. Having faced boxing greats like: Vernon Forrest, Felix “Tito” Trinidad, Cory Spinks, Fernando Vargas, “Sugar” Shane Moseley and “The Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya, Mayorga is a certified legend.
Mayorga was featured for the first time on the cover of Ring Magazine’s December 2003 issue, released in October with a cover that read, “The craziest man in the sport: Mayorga lights up boxing.”
