King Speaks On Mayorga Trouble!

Former welterweight king Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga is currently hiding from the policeĀ in Nicaragua after allegedly raping a 22 year old woman. Boxingtalk.com was able to get a hold of Mayorga manager Carl King last night. King didn't have all of the facts regarding the matter straight, but he's currently on his way to Managua as this goes to print. "I don't know what's going on yet, but I'm going over there now to find out," said King, who has the dubious task of trying to keep the hard-hitting, trash talking, loose cannon under control. Where this leaves Mayorga's eagerly anticipated October 2 showdown with Felix "Tito" Trinidad at Madison Square Garden is unknown, but Boxingtalk.com will continue to keep you updated. Oh yeah, we also hear the woman accusing him of rape is a prostitute, if in fact that's the case, her credibility should come into question considering Mayorga probably doesn't have to do much to land a woman on his native soil. Stay tuned.
