Erik Morales Undercard: John-De Leon, Ishida-Kirkland?

By Miguel Rivera

The return of Erik "El Terrible" Morales is expected to have another strong undercard. Morales has announced his ring return for July 30. He fought on April 9 in Las Vegas, losing a spirited twelve round majority decision to Marcos Maidana. Among some of the fights being discussed for Morales' undercard includes a featherweight clash between WBA "super" champion Chris John and challenger Daniel Ponce De Leon.

Another fight is a possible rematch between junior middleweights James Kirkland and Nobuhiro Ishida. On the undercard of Morales-Maidana, Ishida scored a shocking first round stoppage of the previously undefeated Kirkland. Since the knockout victory, Ishida has become a very popular target for most boxers at 154 and 160.

Morales' opponent has not been set, but the Mexican boxer is open to facing Maidana in a rematch, moving down to chase a title at 135-pounds, or even facing Marco Antonio Barrera for a fourth time.

here's the plan Erik, jus fight humberto soto, get ur 4th title at lightweight then retire!

Jail beat Kirkland and he is now damaged goods. Instead of fighting a stay busy, tune up, against a soft punching boxer. Ishida has turned into a make or break rematch. Ishida? Kirkland better win big or forget about it.
