I conquered the world in the boxing ring all the while I was puffing cigarettes and drinking beer. I won three world title belts and I stood toe-to-toe with so many legends, beating some of them. Vernon Forrest, God rest his soul, was a great boxer yet I beat him back twice. I cannot be denied as I am a force of nature. Now I will shock the MMA fans and I know so many of my fans from boxing will follow me as I expand my repertoire. They can’t deny me in MMA and I will destroy Din Thomas. I am going to smash him the way I smashed all the big superstars of boxing. To me, a fight is a fight in a ring, in a cage or on the street. Fighting is my middle name.
Din is a legitimately good MMA fighter and at his peak Ricardo Mayorga was a good boxer. His wins over Vernon Forrest were no joke and in a straight boxing match he’d be knocking Din out cold. However, we have no clue what kind of takedown defense or submission defense Mayorga brings to the table.
I’ll be watching his fight at Shine Fights with great interest.
