Puerto Rico's Eric Morel, the former 112-pound champion of the WBA, is very excited about his upcoming fight on April 21 in Cancun, Mexico - when he faces undefeated Mexican fighter Abner Mares (23-0-1, 13KOs), who owns the WBC's silver belt at bantamweight.

Morel, 36-years-old, suffered his last defeat in 2005 to Martin Castillo. After a three-year layoff due to legal issues, Morel returned to boxing in full force and won his last eleven fights - including wins over Heriberto Ruiz and Gerry Penalosa. Mares, 26-years-old, was the overall victor in Showtime's bantamweight tournament, defeating Vic Darchinyan and Joseph Agbeko.

Morel expects a very tough fight for both boxers.

"[The fight] will be in Cancun. It will be a really hard fight for both of us. It will not be easy for either of us.....he knows this and so do I. I was waiting for this opportunity and I'll be well prepared," Morel said.

Morel (46-2, 23 KOs) will travel to Mexico a week early to acclimatise to the altitude.

I think Mares is going to KO Morel. Not a bad fight, Morel is on the top 10 ranked Bantamweights. After this though, I want to see Abner fight Moreno. That's the real test at BW.

I don't think so Mares is going to knockout Morel He's going to have more power in his punches at 122. He used to fight at that weight a while back.
