If you haven't already circled September 27th on your calendar, make sure you do. On that date Shane Mosley takes on Ricardo Mayorga. You can expect fireworks as Mosley and Mayorga are both known for exciting fights.
Mayorga who is known for acting like a nut at press conferences, did not disappoint on Thursday. Speaking directly at Mosley at Thursday's press conference, Mayorga through a translator, fired: "Remember what I did to Vernon Forrest and what Vernon Forrest did to you!"
Mayorga who presented Mosley with a pair of pink boxing gloves to wear when they fight one another, would interupt loudly during times when Mosley was speaking. Mosley seemed to take it all in strides, smiling at Mayorga's antics.
At the event Mayorga didn't hide his crazy side, stating: "I've always been nuts."
Here now are some direct quotes from Mayorga at Thursday's event:
“I want to first thank god for giving me this opportunity to continue fighting.
“This is going to be a short fight, like in the amateurs, only three rounds. This will be Shane’s permanent return home because the old lady needs a home.
“I brought these pink gloves for Shane to wear during the fight…I’m sending him permanently home.
“I will fight a three round fight… that is all he will last.
“I will knock out Shane just like Vernon knocked him out.
“I’ll be the man that night and he’ll be my woman…I’m from the country where we only breed men….
“Maybe Oscar will have the guts to fight me in a rematch after I beat Shane up good.
“There won’t be a lot of blood, because I’m going to beat him good and fast and tell him to go home permanently.
“Shane is washed up and he’s got nothing left.
“I’ll put my chin out there for Shane and let him hit me with his best left hook and see what happens."
