Eric Morel Hopes Mares Title Win Will Secure Big Names

By Rey Colon

Puerto Rico's Eric Morel is planning to win another world title on April 21st in El Paso, Texas, when he takes on undefeated Mexican fighter Abner Mares for the vacant super bantamweight crown of the WBC. If Morel wins his third divisional title, according to his father and trainer Cyril Morel, a move in weight for a featherweight opportunity would not be ruled out - but they hope to secure fights with some of the big names at 122 - Jorge Arce and Nonito Donaire.

"This match, although it is for the super bantamweight title, was signed for [a catch-weight] of 120-pounds. Both of them have to make that weight. If Eric wins the title we are going to remain at 122 to challenge those [fighters] who are in the division. They are those who have been unwilling to fight him and ran from 118 to 122 and we are following them. And if the opportunity presents itself, we could take a fight at 126. Mares is the best, after Eric. He is undefeated in 23 fights and Eric is unbeaten in 11 since he moved up to bantamweight," Cyril said.

It will secure big names but for Mares.

Hopefully we can see nishioka-mares or mares-donaire after this one.

I hate fighters like Morel. Basically the type of fighters who blow/back out of big fight opportunities and claim that people are ducking them. Hopefully Mares makes easy work of this loser.

Mares by late TKO.
