Morales-Maidana Draws Huge Rating, Beats Canelo-Hatton

By Miguel Rivera

According to reliable industry sources, last Saturday's junior welterweight bout between Erik Morales and Marcos Maidana drew a huge rating in Mexico. Morales lost a twelve round majority decision to Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It's being said that Morales-Maidana generated a ratings figure of 25 points, which is a little higher than the huge rating generated by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's title winning effort over Matthew Hatton in March. Based on the rating, a high number of the televised homes in Mexico were watching Morales go for a fourth world championship.
