Ricardo Mayorga Biography
Birthday: October 3, 1973 (Libra)
Born In: Masaya, Nicaragua
Ricardo Mayorga is a world famous Nicaraguan professional boxer and MMA fighter. Born and brought up in Nicaragua in a lower middle class family, Ricardo saw difficult days from the very beginning and that somehow shaped him as a tough guy. He has held many titles as a boxer, among them are WBC super welterweight and lineal welterweight titles. But more than his antics inside the ring, it’s his aggression and funky lifestyle outside of it, that has gotten him a lot of media coverage. The ace boxing magazine The Ring’s December 2003 issue placed him on the cover with the headline saying ‘The Craziest man in the sport’. He has been known to talk really rubbish about his opponents before fights, in an attempt to provoke them and he has also been a notorious smoker and alcohol addict. In December 2013, he made his mixed martial arts debut and lost his first four matches. Despite a not so successful career in MMA, he remains one of the most widely known sportspersons hailing from Nicaragua.
