    Four days after the fight was postponed, Fernando Vargas' farewell bout against Ricardo Mayorga was rescheduled on Wednesday night.</p>

    The new date is Nov. 23, and the fight will still take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Staples was to have hosted the Showtime PPV fight on Sept. 8, but on Saturday Vargas was diagnosed with anemia, a blood condition that was making him sluggish during his training camp, and had to postpone the bout.</p>

    Co-promoters Main Events and Don King had been working on a new date with Staples Center officials for the past few days and they came up with Nov. 23, an unusual date for a pay-per-view boxing event because it falls on a Friday, not Saturday, which is the typical day for a major PPV card. This year, it is also the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally a weekend promoters try to avoid.</p></div>
