Sugar Shane Mosley, winner of two amazing career fights against Oscar “Golden Boy” Dela Hoya, will step into the ring tonight once again to fight the man from Nicaragua, Ricardo Mayorga. The fight will be held at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California September 27, 2008 (September 28 in the Philippines). This fight is important for Mosley and Mayorga, because both are ageing fighters who are out to prove their legacy in the sports. Watch the live streaming videos right here in BoxingVid later.
This fight should have happened years ago when both fighters were in their prime years. Instead, pre-fight conferences had Mayorga and Mosley celebrating their victories over people who beat the other one up. Mosley lost to Vernon Forrest twice, the same Forrest who lost to Mayorga. In the same breath, Mosley won over Fernando Vargas twice also, a man Mayorga couldn’t put away in their own match up.
Ricardo Mayorga will be taking on the Sugar Shane Mosley tonight, a match-up many says will be on Mosley’s favor. Let’s not count out Mayorga though. Mayorga is a heavy-handed fighter who mouths insults and profanities a lot bot outside and inside the ring, and is more famously known for being in the losing end of some of his career’s biggest fights. The videos below show some of his career highlights and gives us a primer on how he will be able to beat Shane Mosley later.
