Santa Cruz vs. Morel in Play For Canelo-Lopez Card

By Rey Colon

According to sources in Puerto Rico, former two-time champion Eric Morel (46-3, 23 KO's) will have another chance to win a world title when he takes on Mexico's Leo Santa Cruz (20-0-1, 11 KOs) for the IBF bantamweight championship on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight will be televised by Showtime.

The event will be headlined by the Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (40-0-1, 29 KOs), holder of the WBC championship at 154 pounds, as he takes on Josesito Lopez (30-4, 18 KO's), the WBC's silver king at welterweight.

Santa Cruz won the vacant title in June by beating Vusi Malinga via unanimous decision while Morel fought for the WBC's super bantamweight belt and lost a twelve round decision to Abner Mares in April.

Why Morel is getting another title shot? Two straight title shots that he did not earn.

Wow Santa Cruz too.. this card is really solid Golden boy definitely stepped it up. Other than Martinez-Chavez Jr. fight. There's no other fight that even interest me. Great main event terrible undercard.
