The fight between former four-division world champion Erik Morales (52-9, 36KOs), and former three division champion Humberto Soto (61-8-2, 34KOs), is dead in the water. According to Soto's manager Antonio Lozada, the two sides were simply unable to reach an agreement. There were multiple discussions for Soto and Morales to collide at the end of the year, but now Soto is going to return on a date in December against an opponent to be determined. Soto is highly ranked under the WBC at 140-pounds and wants a shot at the title in the near future.
