Erik Morales Pushes His Ring Return Back To 2014

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Erik "El Terrible" Morales has pushed back his ring return to 2014. Morales had been trying to set a fight for 2013, but instead he will fight either once or twice next year and then retire from the sport. Morales has not fought since October 2012, when he was knocked out in four rounds by WBA/WBC 140-pound champion Danny Garcia. In 2014, Morales turns 38, and 20 of those years been dedicated to professional boxing. Morales amassed a record of 52 wins, 36 of them by knockout, and nine defeats, and he captured world titles at super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight and junior welterweight.

Give it up Morales.

The best thing Morales could do is change his mind and re-retire.

One of my favorite all time fighters to watch, win or loose we know the fights will be exiting, I'll be watching and pulling for him till he decides to retire.

Erik Morales you have earned the dignity and respect which you carry and you need not prove anything further, but if you decide to go on we will always be there to support you and look forward to watch you…

[QUOTE=Ringlife;13890110]Marquez vs Morales in 2014.[/QUOTE] I want to see this one. They're the only two guys out of the featherweight four (Barrera, Morales, Pacquiao, Marquez) that never got to fight each other.
