By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Erik Morales (52-9, 36KOs) is training for what might be the final fight of his career, when he faces Jorge Paez Jr. (37-4-1, 22KOs) on March 22 at Arena Monterrey in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The most important aspect in training that Morales is working on, is speed, to keep up with the younger boxer. If Morales is successful, he wants to face a major opponent in the fall and then announce his retirement.

"Obviously I need compete in every technical aspect. Power is another priority, but without a doubt I'm working a lot on speed. I would like to give the people a good show. We have been training properly, but it is no longer at the pace it was in the past. I have to do things based on what my body is asking of me, but I am sure that with this work I am going to do well," Morales said.

He should have retired 5 losses ago, hasn't had any significant moments in his career in between those last 5 losses. He would have went down as one of the best. He has tarnished his legacy.

Paez is a TOUGH fight to take as a retirement party fight......not too sure about picking Morales in this one.

[QUOTE=Tyler_Durden]:haha: Your entire tall tale story is hilarious, thanks I needed a laugh!! Erik Morales and Juan Manuel Marquez are both great warriors, and to attempt to say otherwise about one or the other is plain ignorance and bias. There's no need for your silliness here.[/QUOTE] ...

Let's hope he changes his mind.
