Erik Morales: After I Beat Maidana, Maybe Ill Go For Five

By Ernesto Castellanos

Erik "El Terrible" Morales, training at the Otomi Ceremonial Center in Mexico, is getting more confident by the day. In less than two weeks, he faces Argentina's Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. On April 1, Morales will finish up, and then head to Tijuana, and then Los Angeles, and then finally to Las Vegas for the fight.

"I know that I'm going to win this fight. After this, I want to continue having big fights. I want to become the first Mexican to win four world titles in four weight divisions, and I even feel that I'll be able to go after the world lightweight championship to get a fifth [divisional title]," Morales said.

Morales was orginally going to fight Juan Manuel Marquez, who withdrew to pursue a third clash with Manny Pacquiao.

"I think that Juan Manuel is an unsure fighter. He doesn't know what he wants. He dreams of fighting Manny Pacquiao, but at the same time he knows that it's not going to happen," Morales said.

I hate it when great fighters become deluded,Morales is going too get seriously hurt by Maidana,i hope its over quickly so there is no long lasting damage

MORALES was GREAT but really really a GREAT FIGHTER;i don't know what can happen with MAIDANA,ERIK has not footwork and stamina to go inside and outside like KHAN did so probably this fight could be a brawl,damn can he take…

idk, im not really sold on maidana. yeah, he has heart, but he isn't a total beast...well, not yet imo. morales can try to outbox him, and i think he some parts. either way, id give it to maidana,…

If he beats Maidana, he won't have even won a 4th, it's just a belt. Khan is the champ.
