"He looks like my son's ass. A little nice and round right now." -Ricardo Mayorga

If boxing ever had a 1-man Spanish quote machine it was Nicaraguan wild man Ricardo Mayorga who may not have been the most eloquent of speakers but knew how to get a reaction and how to get under an opponents skin. It's hard to think of an opponent who Mayorga didn't offend but one of his best comments came in Showtime interview with Jim Gray in which Mayorga came out with an original insult to describe Fernando  Vargas as fat.

Despite generally being known to lose the big ones (including bouts to Miguel Cotto, Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosley, Felix Trinidad and Cory Spinks) Mayorga did actually manage to defeat Vargas in what would be "El Feroz's" last professional bout.
