Erik Morales: Garcia Has Not Improved, Not Very Fast

By James Blears

Four division world champion Erik Morales is pledging to beat Danny Garcia when they meet in a rematch at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on October 20th.

In the build up to their first fight, which took place in March down at the Reliant Arena in Texas, simply nothing was going Erik’s way. The fight which was originally scheduled for the end of January, had to be postponed because Morales had to undergo gall bladder surgery. With just five weeks to prepare, Erik lost his WBC super lightweight title on the scale after being unable to make weight - an unusual, uncharacteristic, but understandable first ever lapse, in his long career. 

Erik, who turns 36-years-old this Saturday,  now has double the time to get ready, and he’s relishing regaining the title. At the WBC offices in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa he explained: “It’s going to be a difficult fight, but I have motivation, and it’s more than just money. I’m going work and do everything to enable me to lift my hand in victory. It’s a motivation!

“I’ve got enough time to prepare and to be in top shape, with better speed and strength. I can achieve a better level than in the last fight. While Danny is the same fighter. Technically he hasn’t changed and he hasn’t improved. He’s not a very fast boxer.”

Erik also revealed that Danny has a bad habit. Like Manny Pacquiao and Marco Antonio Barrera, he sometimes closes his eyes when throwing a punch. Erik drew gales of laughter with a wink and a nod….as he imitated the move, saying that he himself preferred to keep his peepers well and truly wide open, for optimum hand-eye coordination.

It’ll be the first time Erik fights in the Big Apple.

Can't for the second one. Garcia needs to make the uppercut a part of his repertoire, cuz he gets hook-happy. Can't be throwing hook after hook against a veteran like Morales.

[QUOTE=the larryx]people act like the damn first fight was close...Morales was dropped and here are the scorecards Oren Shellenberger 110-117 | judge: Mark Green 112-116 | judge: Samuel Conde Lopez 109-118[/QUOTE] I surely see it a lot closer than those scorecards thats fore sure.

I thought the last fight was 50-50, now I'll slightly favor Garcia. Morales was coming off of surgery and made the 1st fight competitive, regardless of the judges scorecards. But, Garcia is coming off his biggest victory and has the momentum behind him. Garcia will not respect Morales as much as ...

[QUOTE=liraj]If Morales steps in the ring looking like he did the first time they fought then he looses, but if he comes in the ring looking like he did vs Maidana he's gonna school Garcia in front of all his fans. GARCIA FIGHT http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-iFL-_VSYkPA/T3LYZBanu4I/AAAAAAAAIn...

[QUOTE=jsfd26]I thought Morales was winning a very close fight or at least a draw till the KD happened. Then it was downhill from there. I was surprised to see a vet like Morales get so reckless just cause he had Garcia hurt. I don't even think he was in a good enough shape to unload on Garcia so...
