Erik Morales is Still Looking To Have Farewell Fight
By Salvador Rodriguez
Former four division world champion Erik Morales (52-9, 36KOs), 37-years-old, is still looking to end his 21 year career with a farewell fight in Mexico. Morales has been inactive four round knockout loss to Danny Garcia in October of 2012. Morales was going to face Jorge Paez Jr. in March, but withdrew with a hand injury. Paez ended up losing a decision to late replacement Vivian Harris. Morales hopes his hand will fully heal by the end of the month and then he plans to have one more fight before fully retiring.
"I've thought about it and I want to have a fight, to say farewell, before the end of the year. I just hope the body responds to me, so I can have a good fight against a good opponent, and then we'll close a stage in boxing as a fighter," Morales said. "I want to make a decent fight, and not just fight against anyone. I've always had strong challenges in my career and this is no exception, so we will do our best to get something good."

I think Morales should fight Broner. He retires with a win, and we can finally get rid of Broner.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (23)
