Shaw blasts Mayorga!

“Now we know why they call Mayorga ‘The Matador,’ he’s full of bullsh*t,” said promoter Gary Shaw on the apparent cancellation of a February 14 WBC super welterweight title elimination bout between his fighter Alfredo Angulo and former world champion Ricardo Mayorga. “This is as unprofessional as it gets. We don’t hear he’s pulled out from his promoter or manager, just from everyone else in boxing. You have to wonder if he ever intended to fight at all. Mayorga didn’t show at the press conference in Florida and we have yet to see his mandatory 30-day weigh-in report from the WBC. Obviously it wasn’t a red cape he was waving, it was a red flag! But life goes on and we will make every effort to find a worthy opponent for Angulo to preserve his spot on the card and the HBO broadcast.” Angulo (14-0, 11 KOs), of Mexico, is riding a ten-bout victory-by-knockout streak dating back to 2006. The former Mexican Olympian is currently world-rated No. 1 by the WBC and the WBO and No. 7 by the IBF. The card takes place at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. and includes two world title fights.
