Erik Morales To Help Train Jorge Paez Jr.
By Salvador Rodriguez
In a strange twist of fate, former four division world champion Erik Morales will help train welterweight contender Jorge Paez Jr. (37-5-1, 22KOs) for his ring return later in this year.
Morales was scheduled to face Paez on March 22 in Monterrey. He suffered a hand injury as the fight drew close and former champion Vivian Harris stepped in as a late replacement. In a fight most believed would be a mismatch, Harris pulled off a shocking upset with a ten round majority decision. The loss snapped a ten fight win streak.
A few weeks ago, Morales announced his retirement from the sport. He now wants to train fighters and plans to groom the skills of Paez.
