In the pre-fight press conference leading up to Saturday’s bout between over-40 club veterans “Sugar” Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga, Mayorga slapped Mosley’s girlfriend on the ass. Understandably, Mosley lost his shit and went for Mayorga’s throat before the tussle was broken up.
A lot of people speculate the ass-slap was staged, and it definitely was. Let’s review the tape.
Notice how Mosley’s girl bends over in front of Mayorga for some inexplicable reason.
Then, noticing her posterior is poorly angled for the crowd, she stands up and bends over a second time.
Fake. So fucking fake. The whole thing was a sad attempt to hype a bout between two washed-up, middle-age boxers.
In the end, Mosley avenged his girl’s scorned booty, whether that vengeance was real or perceived. In the middle of the fight, Mayorga grabbed his junk and shouted at Mosley before putting his hands down and going full-on Raging Bull (letting the opponent smack him in the face without retaliation for a while).
It was a bold move by Mayorga, but in the end, it didn’t pan out too well for him – Mosley knocked him out in the sixth round..
