Ricardo Mayorga and Don King reconcile; Sturm fight on the horizon

Ricardo Mayorga's short (nonexistent?) mixed martial arts career appears to be over. The mercurial trash-talker and promoter Don King have reconciled, and Mayorga will be returning to boxing. Reportedly, Mayorga's return bout will likely be in Germany, challenging for Felix Sturm's middleweight title. This is probably a good fight for both fighters - it makes Mayorga some money and keeps him in the spotlight, and it provides Sturm with his biggest name opponent in a long time, as well as a good start to his new 10-fight contract with German TV network SAT1. If Mayorga can't come to terms, it appears that Sturm's backup plan would be to face Marco Antonio Rubio.

Fun article about Mayorga's trash-talking. Excerpt: "The Managua mauler's greatest hits would include offering Vernon Forrest a job sweeping his home in Nicaragua; threatening to send Cory Spinks to heaven to join his deceased mother; boasting that he would not only stop Oscar De La Hoya, but also stop his heart; and telling Fernando Vargas he would do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore after he disfigured him. For his upcoming bout with Shane Mosley, he's promised to knock Mosley out in three rounds, adding, "I'll be the man that night, and he'll be my woman."
