This past Saturday night in Las Vegas, Eric Morel easily dispatched Mexico's Daniel Quevedo. Morel (45-2, 23 KOs) was surpised that Quevedo (13-12, 8 KOs), who went down twice, did not come out of his corner after the fourth round. Quevedo had never been stopped before in his career.
"I thought he would eventually get tired and I would dominate him at the end of the fight. I did not expect to stay in the corner after the fourth round," he said.
Now Morel is focused on a potential fight with WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno, which may take place on a date in November. Morel would like to face Chemito, and then stage a unification with IBF champion Abner Mares. Morel feels the winner of a fight between him and Mares should move on to a unification with WBC/WBO champion Nonito Donaire.
"First I want to Moreno and then to unify the titles [with Mares] and then the winner could face Donaire," Morel said.
