Ray Mercer is Missing, Without a Trace


("King of the Cage? I thought you said ‘King of the Players Ball.’ My bad.")

When Ray Mercer didn’t show up for a scheduled appearance on MMA Live last week, everyone figured that the boxer-turned-mixed martial artist, who is in the thick of training for a scheduled King of the Cage fight this coming Friday night must have mixed up his schedule.

Now it seems, there may be more to the story.

King of the Cage east coast representative Keith Creed revealed to usacombatsports.com that Mercer has not been in contact with anyone from his management team or his family since last Tuesday morning when he left his North Carolina home to complete the last leg of his training camp for his September 17 bout with Ron Sparks at "King of the Cage – No Mercy," in Mashantucket, CT.


Although he admits he contacted the former WBO heavyweight champion’s camp to express his annoyance at their charge being a no-show for his media obligation — the second missed appointment for Mercer in the past two weeks — Creed says his feelings of exasperation have been replaced with concern for the cause of Tim Sylvia‘s recurring nightmare.

“At this point we a more concerned for [Ray Mercer's] safety than for his participation in the September 17th event,” said Creed. “If we found him in a Holiday Inn with a line of cocaine and two hookers at least we’d know he had a good time.”

According to a report from The Fight Nerd, police may be contacted tonight if Mercer’s whereabouts cannot be determined, which is somewhat odd, considering nobody has seen or heard from him in six days.

"I actually attempted to call Ray last week and was able to reach Ray’s manager in New Jersey, but after playing phone tag with him was unable to obtain an interview with Mercer or comments from anyone. Mercer was last seen in North Philadelphia, not the most friendly of places, which is where police will begin searching tomorrow if no one is able to contact Mercer by tonight. No names have been mentioned in regards to replacing Mercer in the event he is not found. King of the Cage will be issuing a press release addressing Ray Mercer’s disappearance by tomorrow if no serious headway is made in finding him, and we will update you as the situation progresses."

Hopefully they do find Mercer alive and well in a hotel room with a coffee table full of coke, a bed full of hookers and an incredible story to tell.

I have to say this, Ray Mercer was never missing. I cannot be leave what was posted on this site, such as coke and hookers and a good storey to tell. It is extremely obvious of one thing, this site is with out a second thought a slanderous one. For any one that might be concerned, Ray is alive and well, he is on site and ready to fight. Also, one last thing,, Ray Will win by KO, put your money on it..

Ray Mercer may have won the battle, but Tim Sylvia has won the war. . .

Lol at 64 Squares not only for missing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air ref., but also for saying North Philly is worse than west Philly. I went to college @ La Salle, right in North Philly. I felt safe pretty much everywhere in North Philly. You couldn't pay me to go to West Philly.

News Flash!....Ray got a call from Ricky Hatton, said he could come over with this Tranny that he met in London and they could Par-tai like it's yo Birf-day!
Look for the full story and video supplied by said Tranny in the Daily Mirror tomorrow.

“If we found him in a Holiday Inn with a line of cocaine and two hookers at least we'd know he had a good time.”

Jesus, and people think Dana White says inappropriate shit.

Try to keep up with the humor, please.

@RWilsonR: Kudos, good sir.

Hopefully, Ray Mercer is just merely preoccupied filming all those stunt double scenes for the new season of Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns. Hope you're okay champ.

lol@ 64 squares missing the fresh prince reference
FreddyFangers- September 13, 2010 at 11:26 am
Since CP isnt paying attention, Ray is alive and well training in New Jersey, not Philly. KOTC twitter confirms.
knucklesamitch- September 13, 2010 at 11:15 am
Has anyone called Mercer's rich Uncle in Bel Air?
Seoul Brother- September 13, 2010 at 11:12 am
@RwR: Well done sir.
RwilsonR- September 13, 2010 at 11:11 am
Well... at least Mercer was in North Philadelphia, not West Philly.

I've heard some stories from people born and raised in West Philadelphia, and it sounds like a rough place. They'd just be on the playground shooting some b-ball outside of school, just chilling out, maxing, you know... relaxing all cool. Then out of nowhere, some guys that were up to no good would start to make some trouble in their neighborhood.

After that, best I can tell what happened is these thugs would lift this guy on their shoulders and spin him around and around until dizziness ensued.

Like I said... rough place. I guess this guy even had to move across the country, or something, to get out of there.

Morningwood - 9th, actually. That's just sad.

8th!

Not trying to be a downer, but everybody d.. I'll stop now.

Hopefully Mercer's aiiight. That coke and hookers theory is good for a chuckle, but Ray doesn't strike me as that prima donna, f'kp up athlete type. He's more of the Randy Couture old school warrior, stand up guy type.

Hopefully hes alive. i wish no ill will on anyone except Koscheck LOL. Odds are hes went the way of Belushi and Farley and speedballed and screwed hookers to death.
uzithrasha- September 13, 2010 at 9:59 am
wow, not one sign of sympathy from anyone huh? Good luck with the search
Fried Taco- September 13, 2010 at 9:50 am
Sorry, he's been at my secret ninjitsu training camp. Actually, he is right in front of you, you just can't see him.
FreddyFangers- September 13, 2010 at 9:45 am
He's dead for sure. Not trying to be a downer....

Philly P.D. All Points Bulletin: we are looking for a black male, approx. 6ft. tall and 250 lbs., last seen carrying Tim Silvia's soul in a black briefcase.
Seoul Brother- September 13, 2010 at 9:36 am
Maybe Mumbles ate him.
