Mayorga arrested -- no, again

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

As you may have heard, Ricardo Mayorga was arrested on Tuesday boarding a plane destined for Miami, for failing to pay a dealer $56,000 for four cars. He has been arrested again, this time because three people have accused him of writing bad checks for $87,000.

To say Mayorga doesn't appear to be at the top of the world right now is an understatement. I make no bones about the fact that Ricardo Mayorga is my favorite boxer, not because I think he's very good, but because he's excitement with boxing gloves on. Hopefully we'll see Mayorga back in the ring before the year is out. Sadly, the more stories like this that come up, the more likely it is that he'll need to get back in there.

Would you be interested in Mayorga/Forrest III? It's not a traditional trilogy given the fact that Mayorga won the first two fights, but Forrest is still in need of proving himself, Mayorga is at a crossroads in his career, and their history is still very intriguing, I think. Forrest handled Sugar Shane Mosley, but couldn't handle Ricardo Mayorga? Sure, styles make fights, but what the hell?

Mayorga/Vargas in a battle of Guys That Oscar Shut Up could be fun.
