Erik Morales: With Two Good Eyes, Maidana Gets Stopped!

Former three division champion Erik "El Terrible" Morales is planning to continue fighting. Last Saturday in Las Vegas, Morales showed that he still had a lot left in the tank by losing a twelve round majority decision to Marcos Maidana. The result was very unexpected as most predicted an early knockout victory for Maidana.

In the first minute of the first round, Morales suffered an injury to his right eye. By the end of the first, the right eye was swollen shut. The Mexican warrior admits it was hard to see anything from the right eye and the vaseline being used to treat that injury was blurring his vision. With two working eyes, Morales believes he would have stopped Maidana in seven or eight rounds. 

"They were saying I wouldn't last even two or three rounds. They said I was going to get knocked out - and I was the one who had him on the verge of a knockout. And he didn't really hit me with anything. He had nothing," said Morales. "To have both of my eyes, and normal vision - the fight would have been over in seven or eight [rounds] in my estimation."

Yes Morales, you made a great effort Saturday night, and yes, you were close to scoring a great upset. But you lost the fight. Maidana took the last 2 rounds and with that secured what should have been a UD. Now, shut up. ENough is enough. Maidana beat you fair and it is certainly not his fault i...

I believe you "el terrible" and with your one eyed performance you made me lost respect for Alexander "the fake"

It's amazing how Morales fought 11 rounds with one eye, fighters nowadays pull out of the fight right away. I personally think Morales schooled this kid with two eyes open he would have easier time. Everything Morales and his father say is true he was robbed twice of his 4th division world title ...
