Erik Morales To Fight Again in July, Then November

By Salvador Rodriguez

Accrding to promoter Osvaldo Küchle, former four division world champion Erik Morales (52-9, 36KOs), 36-years-old, will have two fights in 2013 - and then end his career for good. Morales has been out of the ring since getting knocked out by WBC/WBA 140-pound champion Danny Garcia in four rounds last October. The first fight is targeted for the month of July - taking place in Cancun, Monterrey or Chihuahua. And the second match would land in the month of November in Morales' hometown of Tijuana.

Morales has earned the right to take a farewell bow by dusting off a couple of road-sweepers in front of his own people without being hit with the s**t-stick of criticism.

The level of respect for this man in this thread is sick.. Dude is a legend, ya he's over the hill now, but he gave us great fights. Enjoy your retirement

Take on a couple soft touches, make a little more green, and retire before you get hurt, champ.
