On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by reviewing the majority decision victory this past Friday, November 23, by Ricardo Mayorga (28-6-1, 22 KOs) over Fernando Vargas (26-5, 22 KOs) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Vargas, 29, announced that he is now retiring as an active fighter.
This coming Saturday, December 1, there is another major card, this time to the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. On that show, former world light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver (25-4, 18 KOs) takes on journeyman Danny Santiago (29-3-1, 19 KOs), and WBC super welterweight champion Vernon Forrest (39-2, 28 KOs) faces former IBF world welterweight champion Michele Piccirillo (48-3, 30 KOs). These fights, along with the title defense by IBF flyweight champion Nonito Donaire against veteran Luis Maldonado, will be televised in the U.S. on Showtime.
We spoke with Antonio Tarver, Vernon Forrest, and Michele Piccirillo on a media teleconference call.
