Eccentric Nicaraguan Ricardo Mayorga caused a storm at Tuesday’s final press conference when the former world champion slapped upcoming opponent Shane Mosley’s girlfriend’s ass.
The 41 year-old made his move towards the end of proceedings to promote the main event and undercard for the pay-per-view this weekend, before being set upon by Mosley immediately.
Sceptics would say it was a perfect move by Mayorga in order to drum up more interest in the fight, which Mosley took to Twitter to confirm had spiked since the event took place.
The pair square-off on Saturday night in California eight years on from their first contest which ended with a final round knockout for Mosley.
‘Sugar Shane’ has promised an earlier finish this time around.
