Nacho: It Was Sad To See What Happened To Erik Morales

By Miguel Rivera

Trainer and manager Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain said it was sad to see what happened to Tijuana's Erik "Terrible" Morales (52-8, 36KOs) last weekend when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision against American Danny Garcia in Houston, Texas. Like his own fighter, Juan Manuel Marquez, Nacho believes Morales, 35-years-old, can still remain a force in the sport. The Hall of Fame trainer says the people around Morales did not properly manage the boxer's weight, which led his failure to make the junior welterweight limit.

"[Between him not making the weight and the fight], it was sad to see him [like that] because 'El Terrible' is a great fighter, a Mexican boxing legend who helped shape the history of the sport and I find it odd that he looked well [prior to the] fight with Garcia. [Morales] can still be raised from the ashes as they did [with him] in previous fights and he deserves a revival. The previous fights were great, but the people around him did not manage the situation [with his] weight and [look what] happened," Nacho said.

I agree with Nacho. It was obvious Morales was much better than Garcia, but when he started to gas out, he couldn't throw punches. If he would've been more diligent about his conditioning, he would've won that fight.

[QUOTE=edgarg;11951006]Interesting about Marquez' quail eggs. I wonder does he take the shells off......are they hard boiled first?? And lets not forget his special super-duper drink.....[/QUOTE] Yeah he cracks the little shells and drinks a cup with about 25 raw eggs…

Erik can still fight IF he wants to IMO, What I saw against Garcia was a fighter who was not prepared to fight he was in horrible shape. So IF he wants to fight he must come prepared otherwise just…
