Morel Eyes Possible Moreno Showdown on October 20th

By Rey Colon

The two-time world champion, Eric Morel (46-3 and 23 KO's), is looking to come back strong from the decision loss to Abner Mares on April 21, when they fought for the vacant WBC super bantamweight title. Morel is possibly going to return to action in August, says his father and trainer Cyril. But, the older Moreno indicates that his son will possible face WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo 'Chemito' Moreno of Panama on October 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

"It is possible that Eric will again fight in August. They offered us a fight on the 18th of July but Eric wasn't really training and there is a possibility of that fight with Chemito. We are preparing for August but if [Golden Boy] gets us that fight with Chemito in October, [we'll take it]. There are strong rumors that it would be in New York. We want to face Chemito and Eric is working hard. We will see what happens in the next few weeks," Cyril said.

Even at 67 years old, Morel is still a natural 118 fighter If Moreno wants to try his hand at 122, let him do it against an actual 122 lber.

At 122, or 118. Morel is getting too old to go down. This particular fight at 122 gives Moreno a chance to display his skills while simultaneously entering the deep division of 122.

[B]Morel is about to get embarrassed...... Not high on the match up but at least for Moreno its a top 5 bantam according to the R I N G........ [/B]

No, just no. Morel is done, he didn't win a round against Mares, give Moreno someone with pulse.
