Former welterweight champion Ricardo Mayorga returned home Wednesday after a loss to Felix Trinidad and almost immediately was ordered under house
Mayorga, knocked out in a middleweight bout Saturday in New York, surrendered in court to face sexual abuse charges. A 20-year-old woman last month
accused the boxer of rape. He acknowledged having sex with her at a hotel but said it was consensual.
Accompanied by a dozen bodyguards, his mother and his lawyer, Mayorga walked into court as supporters cried "Let him out!" and critics shouted back at
them: "Accomplices!" Judge Marta Lorena Martinez placed him under house arrest and posted a bond of $9,000.
