Morel Could Face Chemito Moreno Next, Angry at Arce

By Rey Colon

Former champion Eric Morel (46-2, 23KOs) is very upset with WBO bantamweight king Jorge 'Travieso' Arce. Morel and his team members became  angry after BoxingScene.com's recent report, which disclosed the Mexican champion's plan to have a rematch with Lorenzo Parra of Venezuela on February 18 in Durango, Mexico. Morel is also upset with the WBO for sanctioning the fight, considering that Parra is not ranked in the top ten of any sanctioning body.

"Arce does not want to fight with Eric. It is very difficult to get an opportunity for Eric. Those fighters who call themselves world champions, especially at 118, will never give Eric the opportunityc. I think it's an injustice by the OMB. They must consider Eric and others and give the opportunity to those who deserve it. The WBO favors who they want," said Cyril Morel, Eric's father and coach.

Cyril says they are waiting on a call from Golden Boy Promotions for a fight in late March or April with Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno, the bantamweight champion of the WBA, which may happen in Brooklyn, New York.

"We are waiting for them to give us this great opportunity. We want to win a title at 118, defend it and then go to super bantamweight," he said.

What lluisone was really saying was "every PUERTO RICAN boxer whos done wrong deserves a second chance, not Mexicans or others."

[QUOTE=elplayapimp;11608077]so you forgive margarito right?:cool2:[/QUOTE] Here is what lluisone said: """Margarito is a cheater and Garcia is kising his asss""". He would be singing a different tune if Margarito was a PR.
