Erik Morales Decisions Jose Alfaro Over Twelve Rounds

By Mark Vester

At the La Explanada Del Palacio Municipal in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, former three division champion Erik Morales (49-6, 34 KOs) returned for the first time since 2007 to win a twelve round decision over Jose Alfaro (23-6, 20 KOs). The scores were 117-111, 116-112 and 116-112. The fight took place at welterweight and Morales snapped a four fight losing streak.

Morales did not look good at the welterweight limit. He was very chubby looking, slow moving and should really consider moving back down if he plans to continue his career. After four rounds of decent action, Morales began to put on the pressure in the fifth round.

At the midway point, the fight began to play put like an old fashioned Morales war. The seventh round was a toe to toe gun fight with the boxers trading hard shots at close range. Alfaro was going after the soft body of Morales during the contest but couldn't really hurt him. The rest of the fight saw Morales doing more work and Alfaro not doing enough. Alfaro was too small for the weight and could never really hurt Morales.

Undercard Coverage  

In a very unexpected result, Chris Henry (25-2, 20 KOs) knocked out Hugo Hernan Garay (32-5, 17 KOs) in the first round of their WBA light heavyweight eliminator. Henry caught Garay cold with a bomb and laid him out.

Prospect Abraham Han (9-0, 8 KOs) stopped Ulises Duarte (19-16, 17 KOs) in the first round of a middleweight contest.

Heavyweight prospect David Rodriguez (33-0, 31 KOs) knocked out Daniel Bispo (22-13, 16 KOs) in two rounds of action.

it hurts to see morales fighting at this atage of his life. he's an accomplished man in boxing. after watching the fight, i suggest he should call it a day.

eric morales & juan manuel marquez are not welterweights, maybe jr. welterweights .... they should fight each other & if marquez defeats morales, marquez should fight manny pacquiao & then morales should go back to retirement or fight in the lower weight divisions .... if marquez loses to morales...

[QUOTE=Iceta Lives]War Morales. If he wants to give it another go, then who's to say he shouldn't. JMM didn't look good at 147 either. If Morales can get a professional nutritionist and get back to his effective fighting weight, I'm not completely writing him off.[/QUOTE] true that good pos...

[QUOTE=BadBrains]Your comparing JMM and Morales at 147. That is absolutely retarded. JMM fought a Floyd Mayweather, not a 135lber Jose Alfaro.[/QUOTE] The reason I made that comparison is because JMM's body looked soft. I didn't see this fight with Morales, so I don't know how soft he was.

Any legit vacant title in 140 or 147 for Morales and JMM to fight for? I would like for them both to face off and prove to the Mexican who is the best Mexican fighter of their Generation.
