Erik Morales: I Want The Linares vs DeMarco Winner

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBC junior welterweight champion Erik Morales (52-7, 36KOs) is planning to have at least four to five more fights before he retires in 2013. Morales tells Sal Rodriguez that he plans to target the winner of the upcoming fight for the vacant WBC lightweight title, between Jorge Linares and Antonio DeMarco, which takes place on October 15th at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Morales never indicates whether he plans to move down to challenge the winner for their 135-pound title, or the winner has to move up.

Morales wants to return in December and looks to face the Linares-DeMarco winner in early 2012. After an active 2012, he wants to finally retire for good in 2013. Also, he doesn't rule out a possible move to 147 for a showdown with WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

duno if he is ducking a potential fight with Maidana or Bradley, to be honest he dont strike me as the kind of guy to duck but maybe he is smart enough to know there fights he just cant win…

Cant wait for Linares Demarco.Two highly skilled young fighters gotta give the advantage to Linares having Roach in his corner and sparring Manny
