Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales To Collide in Exhibition on January 15

Mexican boxing legends, Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik 'Terrible' Morales, are planning to face each other once more in their careers when they hold an exhibition fight on January 15 in Dallas, Texas, according to ESPN Deportes.

They hope to have some form of an audience at the event.

Barrera said the idea is to fight over a four round distance.

It would be their first collision since they completed their spectacular trilogy more than fifteen years ago.

Morales won a controversial twelve round decision in the first meeting, with Barrera winning a controversial twelve round decision in the rematch. Their third fight, which took place in 2004, saw Barrera win a close twelve round majority decision.

The first contest captured "Fight of The Year" honors, as did their third encounter.

Both Barrera and Morales have been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

The 44-year-old Morales had his last fight in 2014, when he was knocked out in three round by then welterweight champion Danny Garcia. And the 46-year-old Barrera had his last fight in early 2011, when he knocked out Jose Arias in two rounds.

Morales was a four division world champion, while Barrera captured world titles in three weight classes.

There was always some chatter about a fourth meeting when they were still active, but the contest never took place.

While they were very heated rivals for several years, they have since become good friends.
