Erik Morales' Farewell Fight is Being Backed By Tijuana

The Boxing Commission of Tijuana is going to fully support Erik Morales' decision to have a farewell fight in 2013. The Mexican icon wants to retire in Tijuana with one final fight before his loyal countrymen. Juan Carlos Pelayo, who's President of that Commission, is on board with the match.

“Erik has been the pride of Tijuana and for Mexican boxing. It's only fair that he has a worthy farewell from the ring,” stressed Pelayo.

Pelayo stated that the support of the Commission will only be for Morales' retirement match. If Erik later wants to keep going with his boxing career, that would be a different matter.

Morales (52-9, 36KOs) captured four divisional crowns in his Hall of Fame career. At only 36-years-old, the Mexican warrior's body is feeling the full brunt of the numerous wars that he was involved in over the years. After nearly three years of being away from the ring, he returned in 2010 and went 4-3 in his latest campaign. He lost three of his last four fights, including a vicious knockout at the hands of Danny Garcia in October.

If its Barrera then it wouldnt happen in Tijuana which defetas the object of a afrewell fight for Morales. It can be a Mexican but not his bigges rival of his career. I think Erik would have beaten Marquez in his prime but that chance has passed. Soto is a decent suggestion or Katsidis.

this is the fighter that always fought for the fans, gatti, katsidis, arce, corrales, margarito, vargas and rios were all that type of fightr but............... morales was the only guy that had real skill that instead of using skill he just laid it down for the fans and brawled

Diaz, Barrera, Soto, Antillon

Maybe he could rematch David Diaz?

they should make morales-marquez already, it's a very doable fight
