Erik Morales Signs Contract To Close Marquez Deal

By Jose Antonio Soriano, notifight.com

According to the father of Tijuana's Erik "El Terrible" Morales, both his son and fellow three-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez, have signed contracts for an all-Mexican clash on April 9 in Las Vegas. The fight between Erik Morales and Marquez will be at junior welterweight (140 pounds) and the Diamond Belt of the World Boxing Council (WBC) will be on the line. The fight between both Mexican fighters was made by Golden Boy Promotions.

"I'm glad that we came to a successful conclusion in our negotiations to carry out this fight," said Jose "Olive Grove" Morales, father and coach of Erik Morales. "Hopefully, both fighters give it a good show and a great fight for the fans. I know that both Erik and Juan Manuel will arrive in perfect condition on the day of the fight. I will do my best for my child to win.

It is expected that Morales will begin training this week at the Otomi Ceremonial Center.
