Erik Morales Eyes Final Retirement Bout in Tijuana

By Omar Hernandez

Former four division world champion Erik Morales, 36-years-old, is looking to fight for the final time, potentially in the month of March, at Estadio Caliente in Tijuana. Morales, who turned pro in March of 1993, wants to hold his final match around the period of his 20th anniversary as pro. Morales lost three of his last four contests and wants to end his career with a final victory before his hometown fans.

"It would be great to end my career here next year, say goodbye, and have a big party. In March it would mark the 20th year of my career. I want to do it then. I have offers to stage my final fight here in Tijuana," Morales said.
