Paez: Erik Morales is My Idol - But It's My Time Now!

By Salvador Rodriguez

Jorge 'Maromerito' Paez will travel this weekend to Big Bear, California, to begin his training camp for the fight against four-time world champion Erik "Terrible" Morales on March 22 in Monterrey. Although Páez considered Morales as a his idol when he was growing up, he says the veteran's time is now over in pro boxing and he will certainly retire after they collide.

"Erik Morales is a boxer who reached the peak, go to the top and that is something we all want. I can confess that he is my idol. I grew up watching his fights, watching Erik Morales fight. It's a dream come true to face him. I'm going to give a good fight and this fight will be remembered for a long time. Erik is no longer the same, but the experience is there, and he also has a respectable punch, which makes him dangerous. I have something in my favor and that is youth, and also I have experience. I'm well motivated for that night. This is my time now," Paez said.

Poor Morales. Just another in the long line of infinite examples of fighters who can't call it quits. What does he have to gain here? Few extra bucks?
