The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. will be the place to be in Southern California on Saturday, August 29th when “Sugar” Shane Mosley faces nemesis Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga in a rematch of their classic 2008 battle.
Mosley and Mayorga were in the last round of a close fight when Mosley stopped the brash Nicaraguan with 1 second left in their fight to secure the victory. Seven years later the rivalry is renewed at the refurbished Forum, former home of the Los Angeles Lakers and one of the best venues to watch boxing in the country.
The stars will be out in full force to support the former three-division champion Mosley and two-division champion Mayorga who both promise knockout victories. Calls have been coming in almost daily from celebrities looking to buy tickets to what is guaranteed to be an all out war.
So far we can confirm that 4-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, future Hall of fame member Winky Wright, former champions Victor Ortiz and Sergio Mora, comic icon George Lopez, rap legend MC Hammer, and Chuy Bravo from Chelsea Lately will be in attendance to watch the Grudge Match. More star power will be announced in the near future.
Mosley-Mayorga 2 Grudge Match is distributed by Integrated Sports PPV for $49.95 on all major cable/satellite providers
