Erik Morales Vows Garcia Win: Things Will Be Different!

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Erik Morales (52-8, 36 KOs) tells BoxingScene.com that he doesn't want to waste his time with pointless tuneups or lackluster opponents, which prompted him to exercise his rematch clause to fight WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (24-0, 15 KOs) on October 20th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The anticipated rematch will headline a Showtime televised event.

This past March, Garcia dropped Morales hard in the eleventh round and won a twelve round unanimous decision. Prior to the match, Morales underwent surgery to correct a gallbladder problem and he doesn't believe he fully recovered, causing problems in his training camp. Morales failed to make weight for the fight with Garcia and lost his WBC title on the scale.

Garcia moved forward, and a few weeks ago he shocked the boxing world by stopping superstar Amir Khan in four rounds at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

"It's a very important fight for me. I know that many questions have remained after I lost in March, and many things have happened since then. Maybe I did not have enough time to recover from the operation," Morales tells BoxingScene.com.

"And now I think things will be different. We have enough time to prepare well, without worrying about that operation or any physical problems. We will train hard and we know that we are capable of winning and plan continue with our dreams in this sport."

He has a chance, but last fight he looked old slow and out of shape and faded late, I expect the same result here.

[QUOTE=lefthook2daliva]I'm well aware that Morales is the legit underdog here. Having said that: WAR EL TERRIBLE!!!:boxing: Haven't been too keen on Marquez vs Morales cause' I thought Morales much further past his best than JMM. However, an Erik Morales fresh off a victory over good young ...
