So he is one of the uh.
How would i say one of the toughest guys i’ve ever seen, fight anywhere he’s tougher than most guys in the press conference.
You know what i mean.
Graham yep he’s one of those guys who really he believes in himself.
He did the job he went out.
He won world titles a little controversial if you, if you know who he is um, but um, he’s kind of one of those guys that i kind of liked him like all the way along right.
He wasn’t like the the best of the best or anything, but he was really really good and – and i thought like personally – i thought it was great.
You know what i mean graham, so they don’t really talk about myoga very much.
He was born october 3rd 1973.
So he’s 47 years old now he’s been retired for quite a number of years.
I would think probably five or six right uh.
He was born in a messiah nicaragua.
You know, graham, do you do you know any other fighters out of nicaragua off to the top? No big mac, no no big names uh come to mind off top my head thanks for asking yeah, i know it’s like uh, i mean nicaragua.
I have some friends in guatemala and yeah the the boxing and the fighting down.
There is big right.
It’S like in in those central american countries and in mexico obviously, and they they like the boxing down there.
They really do you know what i mean and my owner was one of the big boys down there, graham like he.
You don’t really hear much of him, but i’m telling you he and he had a lot of gumption like any.
Like i said anytime, he was in a press conference or any anything he he was.
He was giving it to the other guys like.
I remember one time he showed up.
I think it was against shane mosley with a cigarette in his mouth wow yeah and mostly he smacked it right out of his mouth like for real well, we smoked two packs of cigarettes a day in my orga, and you know he, like you know, he’s that Guy but uh he back, he backs it up.
You know what i’m eager.
It was pretty funny stuff.
So if you guys want to check it out guys, then you know the deal guys.
The show talking fight people check out.
My orga he’s got some big fights.
Okay, so let’s just just talk a little bit about his amateur career, more or less you know we didn’t really have an amateur career.
Sorry, graham here i got – i was just gon na say i can.
I can’t even find him on google, i i yeah.
How do you spell that uh, carlos myorga m-a-y-a-r-g-a, myorga, uh? Nicaragua? No, that’s weird! Really yeah! Well, we’ll talk a little bit more about it here, guys hold on graham’s gon na check it out.
Okay, so he’s a two-time world champion all right.
I got a ricardo mayorga.
I got a ricardo america yeah, they ricardo antonio mayorga perez exactly, but they call him girl right.
Okay, i’m sorry right, so he has like a long long like right, ricardo, antonio mayorga perez, but then they call him drunken right.
So same guy yeah, all right cool, so uh two-time world champion wba super uh, uh super welterweight and wbc ring magazine welterweight title: he had 2003 uh wbc super welterweight title from uh: 05.
That’S! When i kind of saw him! You know what i mean he uh.
He had those.
It was like a few years in there where he was fighting a moseley right and he fought de la hoya, actually graham we’re talking about him now.
But i just watched that fight the other day like mayorga versus de la hoya, and it was it was.
It was very entertaining so guys if you want to see a good one de la hoya and my yoga.
Oh, it’s a good one, so he fought in like five weight divisions which i didn’t think because i was, i always saw him as basically the same size like all the time.
So it was a fairly light.
Welterweight welterweight, light, middleweight, middleweight and super middleweight right.
So, like holy cow, so he he he fought in five five different divisions – and i didn’t know that i always thought he was basically a light lightweight.
Basically right, he was fighting in mosley and those guys right.
So so he retired in 2011 uh.
He there’s not a lot of information on him.
Abraham mayorga, he turned into himself yeah yeah yeah.
He kind of keeps to himself right, i’m like holy cow, but i’m telling you guys he was an amazing fighter like like he was graham.
If he watches fights he used to do you know, i don’t know what you’d call it like where uh he’s kind of like baiting, the other guy in like he’s, got his hands down.
He’S kind of you know sticking his chin at the guy and he’s not like he’s playing possum right.
He did it with vernon forrest, remember vernon, force yep, myoga yeah, and then he did it with uh with mosley, and he keeps doing it on all these fights right where he’s kind of like making fun of it he’s actually making.
You know what i mean and then he’s such a good counter, puncher that and he you know you kind of get sloppy, because you think he’s not really he’s not even defending himself.
Then all of a sudden he’s just popping you with, like 10, punches fast, like really fast, so he was a pretty calculated boxer when i saw him so his pro totals.
Let’S get his pro totals here.
46 fights, graham uh 32 wins right.
26 kos 12 losses one draw and one no contest right, so he did pretty well like 32 wins out of 42 fights and he had some big ones like i said so.
The big fights that i thought guys you should watch these ones all right.
These are good ones, uh, my orga, carlos mayorga, ricardo, all right, my orga, i would say koto, you know who miguel cotto is.
Graham you ever heard of him.
I’Ve heard of him sort of yeah yeah yeah.
He was in there.
He was a good fighter.
Kodo right so uh that was a great fight.
A myorgocodo, uh, myorga, uh shane mosley, was really crazy, graham uh, if you, if you guys, want to watch that it’s interesting because in the press conference uh, my order was giving uh mosley a lot of problem and then is mosley’s girlfriend bent over and something happened.
If you know what i mean and and mostly was not happy about it and the girl was not happy about whatever happened so maya, you know he’s just he’s like a character, you know what i mean just he was a he’s, a he’s, actually, a real cool Character like he’s whatever he did, whatever he had to do so uh, the other one would be obviously uh, mayorga and de la hoya, graham yeah.
That was an amazing fight watch it i i was actually i just watched it the other day and i was like wow so apparently there’s this rumor as i’ve heard recently that he might make a comeback myorga, and i wouldn’t be surprised because he’s that kind of Guy and uh he wants to fight a guy named antonio margarito from mexico.
Apparently this year and margarito is guys we’ll talk about margarito, fantastic fighter too.
So i guess my yogurt’s coming back.
That’S what i heard yeah yeah yeah yeah.
I know it’s like oh yeah.
When villains collide, okay, all right so see that stay tuned, margarito guys like margarito, look at him he’s a great fighter, margarito all right, so uh yeah it’d be interesting.
My organ is actually coming out of retirement in 2021.
That’S what he said! That’S what he’s! What he’s claiming so maybe he’s joining uh mike tyson’s pillow fight league there, oh yeah yeah, exactly wouldn’t be surprised, because honestly, majora is one of those guys like graham watch the fights he’s very entertaining any any.
He does a lot of things that, like make other boxers, get upset, but he’s like what was the guy? What was it he’s like dan da who, i think, you’re gon na, say kenny, lindsey or kenny linsman, exactly like the rat, like that, you know the past or something right.
Yeah yeah he’s one of those guys right, but he’s very talented, obviously and great career amazing and well hey guys check out my yoga all right.
There we go there’s a good one.
My horogram, you guys want to hear nobody talks about guys like that: hey graeme.
Anyone has on this series of shows that we’re doing no, i know, but you know he’s one of these.
What are they gon na get them up? One of the guys you got ta look out for like in the old time that really never got the super fanfare right, okay, but he was.
He was really good man.
