Erik Morales vs. Sergio Martinez Exhibition Clash in Talks

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican boxing legend Erik 'El Terrible' Morales has revealed the possibility of making an exhibition bout in Argentina, against another retired former world champion in Sergio 'Maravilla' Martínez, on date and venue to be appointed, which is why he hopes to get back to work in the gym.

"There is that possibility, they contacted me and it sounds interesting, I will have to train to give people a good exhibition," said Morales to ESPN Deportes.

Morales hopes to obtain more details soon for that event.


Prior to this project, which is currently in its infancy, the Tijuana idol will hold a three-round exhibition fight with former champion Orlando 'Siri' Salido, on April 12 in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora, in an event where the profits will be used to help to a foundation that fights cancer in children.

Morales (52-9, 36 KOs) has been away from the ring since October 2012. Morales won titles at super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight, and junior welterweight.

Morales retired after suffering back to back defeats to Danny Garcia.

At one point he entertained the idea of resuming his career, but it never happened.

Martinez (51-3-2, 28 KOs) retired not long after his knockout loss to Miguel Cotto in June of 2014

Martinez began his career at welterweight and captured world titles at junior middleweight and middleweight.

He was pondering the possibility of a comeback in 2018, for a rematch with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - but claims Chavez Jr. withdrew from the planned bout. Martinez has continued to drop hints about a potential return to the ring.
