Nicaraguan former world champion Ricardo "El Matador" Mayorga continues his comeback campaign later tonight against Andrik Saralegui of Mexico in the main event of a card that will take place in Puerto Salvador Allende in El Malecon Managua, in a promotion of Buffalo Boxing, the promotional company of former world champion Rosendo Alvarez and his wife Ruth Rodríguez.
Mayorga is in the twilight of his career. At 41 years old, this is only his second fight in over three years. During the three-year impasse without boxing, Mayorga had a very unsuccessful run in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). He returned to boxing in September and knocked out Allen Medina in just the first round in Oklahoma City.
Mayorga has a record of 30-8-1, with 24 knockouts while Saralegui is 7-1, 5 KOs. The fight is taking place at light heavyweight, with Mayorga coming in at 173 pounds and Saralegui at 171.
