Erik Morales Eyes Paez in March, Then Brandon Rios

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Erik "Terrible" Morales (52-9, 36KOs) is planning to return in the month of March and says a deal to face Jorge Paez Jr. (37-4-1, 22KOs) is almost wrapped up but no contracts have been signed. Morales, inactive since a KO loss to Danny Garcia in October 2012, wants to retire in 2014 with two fights.

"We're well advanced in negotiations [for Paez]. I have not signed anything nor is it a [done deal], but it would, for example be at welterweight. [Paez] is young, strong, fast," Morales said.

If he wins, Morales would like to have a fight in the second half of the year against former champion Brandon Rios.

"I want to go out with a big fight, but first I want to prove that I can go into that big fight. First I want to beat Páez before I even start thinking about that fight, because [if I don't win against Paez], then the other [fight] won't exist," Morales said.

Him ,arce and Rafael marquez need to go away for the love of god, I don't want these guys to some how win a fight and think they can still bang and seriously get hurt. They all had some great chins in the day but reflexes and wars have just taken their toll. As much as I hate broner he stops ...

Morales is one of my favorite all time fighters, but I think paez jr out point him in this one. Wish morales would stay retired, but of course ill be watching.
