It has been announced that the rematch between former world champions Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday at the Forum in Inglewood, CA will take place as scheduled. The announcement comes following an attempt to stop the fight from taking place by longtime Mayorga promoter Don King who sought an injunction. King claimed to have Mayorga under an exclusive promotional contract and could prevent him from fighting under a different promotional banner.
A court ruling on Tuesday in Miami, FL however, allowed the fight to go on stating that any future efforts of promoting Mayorga by King would not be negatively impacted by the scheduled rematch with Mosley. Mosley, who is also promoting the card had stated in an interview with Fox Sports that the card would go on with or without Mayorga. Mosley claimed to have a substitute opponent in place if Mayorga was pulled from the fight.
Mosley-Mayorga II takes place Saturday, August 29th at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. The card will be televised on a cable/satellite pay-per-view basis in the United States for $49.95. Contact your local pay-per-view provider for ordering information.
We will have a preview of the fight that will be released on Thursday. Stay tuned.
