As reported prior in boxen247.com, Ricardo Mayorga is currently in the Como Las Aguilas Rehabilitation Center in Nicaragua. He has had a history of alcohol and drug abuse and finally with his friend Rosendo Alvarez he has finally accepted support.
Below is a video (in Spanish) on one of our YouTube channels of Ricardo and Rosendo just before setting off to rehab.
Many in the fight game are supporting Ricardo including Julio César Chávez, himself struggling in the past with addiction.
“My dear Ricardo Mayorga, I know that you are going through difficult times in your rehabilitation. You are going to win like a champion, do not despair. We are waiting for you here in Mexico and we’ll see you very soon. First, God knows that you are going to get well, everything can be accomplished with good will. Have courage champion,” Chávez said.
Once his three months in rehab are up, he is then off to Mexico to spend time in Chavez’s rehabilitation clinic, which is very famous in Mexico. The further rehabilitation will be covered by the WBC.
So far so good and hope once and for all he stays well.
