Mosley-Mayorga II: Full Press Conference

Check out the full presser for Mosley-Mayorga II, which of course had a meltdown...

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

WIth the Mosley-Mayorga rematch officially in the clear for this Saturday, the two sides held a press conference to talk about their upcoming bout at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Shane's father, Jack Mosley, took to the podium to tell the people he's brought his "power boxing" style back to Shane and ended up engaging in some verbal banter with Mayorga (which is pretty bizarre seeing as they don't even understand one another).

But some things are just a universal language, like when Ricardo Mayorga took the opportunity to pat Shane's girlfriend on her rear end during the face off, which in turn caused a little ruckus. Shane appeared to attempt to choke Mayorga, but security and training teams intervened rather quickly. Shane's girlfriend flipped out, cried, and then exited the stage as Shane followed her to an extremely awkward applause from those in attendance.

A few moments later, Shane had a sit down with the media where they asked what would cause Mayorga to step over the line, at which point Shane's girlfriend gave him a hard time for not kicking Mayorga's ass on the spot for disrespecting her. I guess that was a little emasculating.

Anyway, Shane says now he has no other choice than to kill Mayorga in the ring this weekend. Is that enough drama to get you to shell out for the PPV?
