Erik Morales is one of Boxings Biggest Sore losers and he got busted using an illegal substance in this rematch with Danny Garcia.. nothing more then another south of the border Cheat..

Boxers like morales,,,are hard to come by these days. Fighters that dont duck and come to put on a show…that is what boxing is all about. Prove to yourself and to your fans that when a boxer like morales stepps in the ring. You will be guaranteed a show..Boxing at its best,,,,Gracias “El Terrible” for all the great exciting matches,,,

Add morales had bad management still fighting 140 at 5’8 and retireing there. your body grow into a man, do t starve yourself all the time, move up silly.
pac and jmm who shorter move up, morales runs out of gas in the later rounds, why? Because your body start to distroyed its self, muscle, its shut down, he has no fat.

Even khan stayed at 140 too long, look what happen when he when to 147 , knock down 3 times a bruiser that was to kill him no problem easy win.

Garcia would not beat Morales in his prime….Morales was BATTLE WORN by the time he beat him….He got a LEGEND’S name on his resume…Also I might add it took him TWO TIMES to get the job right….He barely beat him in the first fight……

D. Consider age, morales is a old man and so is Barretta, Garcia and khan are about 20 years younger. And both garcia and khan are rank and top player, both would tune Garcia and khan a/SS if they fought in there prime.

neither morales nor barrera are eating anyone’s lunch these days. khan ate barrera’s lunch. garcia ate morales’s and khan’s lunch. danny ate morales’s lunch even faster than he ate khan’s lunch. both were a mere snack. he’s looking for bigger portions. after he finished those popsicles he thought he spotted a fudgesicle

I give only 60-80 credit to chatch weight fight.
And Floyd shouldn’t get 100 % credit for fighting a 137 lb fighter and rehydrated to over 150.

What I’m saying is Hatton and Marquez could have got a title fight at 140 but they chose to fight Mayweather.
That didn’t make it clearer, guess you mean in there weight, hatten was unbeaten at 140 lb he was king. Manny broke that, Floyd took him too 145 lb.
Jmm only PAC was above him and PAC was fighting guys at 147 lb and 150 on lb
Really they were on top already.

Margarito was offered a shot at the 154 WBC belt but had to make 150 to fight for it. Pacquiao claimed his Light middleweight belt without ever fighting at the weight.
I don’t think he had a bel as he a was suspended for a years. But same thing all fighter are after a catch weight fight, both are guilty that why I give 60-80 % credit to both side PAC and Floyd .
You should give 100% to jmm over PAC as diffrent factor are involve here. Where did that right hand punch come from. Etc good eating, and it’s is jmm set weight now.

That rainbow belt junk was from cotto PAC fight that they made a belt for catch weights fighter or something.

1903, same thing you think Floyd would have offer a 140 lb fight? No because they would take it,so were not offer it they had no choice 145 or nothing ,true same as margarito they offer a 150 lb fight and ac didn’t make it 149 lb I belive, Margo didn’t have a belt. And I belive they made a Rambos belt or whatever, a junk belt,but could be that junk belt is the belt floyd has at 145 he has 2 belt at 154lb. Not serious, just hitting back at peej no credit no credit. All in fun.

Posted June 6, 2014 6:47 pm 


1903

Mike Tyson, Hatton and Marquez didn’t ‘have’ to do anything they chose to fight Mayweather at welterweight. When Margarito fought Pacquiao he was told he had to make 150 for a 154 belt, otherwise he would have to forget about fighting for a light middle belt. Hatton and Marquez still had the option of fighting at Light welter if they thought welter was too big.

Another sad day for Pactards. Jmm didn’t call out Floyd he said he the p4p champ not manny.
That a complement, and that also say you can beat me to as I am only a 137 lb fighter and we will never meet. He lost before he fought, and that contract might have said no rematch.

Rio is would give Floyd a hard fight, just the maidana slugger type, why the change?you said he was going to ko manny. Mand you were preaching that junk all day and over and over.

Posted June 6, 2014 6:32 pm

Now you see how the game play and feel the opposite side it’s a two way street.

Peej will not give. Credit for for margarito or Oscar or even the Mexican wins Floyd gets no. Credit for hatten or Marquez . Even who was made to come to 152 lb and take his 145 belt that he can’t defend. It’s Two way street.

Posted June 6, 2014 6:27 pm 


Another sad day for Pactards

Marquez called out Mayweather not the other way around. But you Pactards give pacroide credit for beating a blown up fat slow footed Mexican Rios coming off a loss. Rios made pacroide RUN.
Pacroide got ktfo by a 40 year old slow flat footed Mexican

Jmm Was not Not making 140 lb jr WW minimum before floyd fought him. look up his prior fight. 137 lb.

Posted June 6, 2014 6:13 pm 


Mike Tyson

SREDMOND is that for me? Marquez was fighting at 137 lb at that time he was even making 140 lb at jr WW. The same weight hatten was a jr WW. He made both guys come up to 145lb
Jmm could not make it eating 20 quil eggs a day his words. And no personal trainer or right diet.
He was 143 lb fighting Floyd who as 147 lb and when back up to 153 lb his normal weight back then.

Ricky a140 lb jr WW he also had to gain 7 lb to fight Floyd and he was co eating on Floyd a lot
He got too predictable at the end but not bad for a jr WW. PAC did Ricky at his 140 lb.
A d he did jmm at his 144 the right way, PAC proble is he too fair he should do his combo and hold jmm as Floyd hold his oponate. Womenly style. Then he will not get the Counter punch.

Posted June 6, 2014 6:11 pm

Its funny Mayweather beats a much younger version of Marquez and he is “ducking” meanwhile Manny gets knocked out by JMM on the doorstep of 40 and FMJ gets no cred? At the end of the day thru 5 weight classes, 4 lineal titles, 22 Championship fights and 46 total bouts only ONE guy won a single card of Mayweather and that’s ODH who Mayweather frustrated and outboxed…Stop making excuses these other fighters just cannot hang, Mayweather took out the guy everyone thought would give him trouble and paid up to see (Canelo) and because he made it look easy these QUIFFS are still pissed… Lowly Dogs

Another sad day for Pactards and tomato can.
So peej can say pac beat morales only as he was over the hill the second fight, when He was at his prime, at 30 year old And morales dropped maidana and beat him up after PAC Floyd had his hardest fight, and might need a rematch.

Posted June 6, 2014 5:35 pm 


Mike Tyson

Raymond , that retirement only came up because peej will not give PAC credit for the Mexican fighters years, and , fact is Floyd was retired so at lease give PAC his credit PAC had 2 fight a year even started back then Floyd was 1 fight per year. And gives credit for 1 morales fight and says the other was after he was on a down hill, mean he didn’t clear morales, morales was 30 that fight I look it up. He was at his prime..

And maidana fought morales after PAC, and morales dropped maidana hard even Floyd couldn’t do this.
In short Floyd get no credit he can beat morales he was retired, and he beated up maidana till the last 2 . Other than that Floyd can retired as he wish, peej acting like a fan boy here.
He wants to put down PAC past ,so Floyd deserve the same.

Morales beat a young and still growing Manny Pacquiao. Manny had fought and beat Barrera and drew against Marquez before losing to Morales. Look at Manny Pacquiao’s record after that an you’ll the a truly experienced, fighting machine that was destroying everyone in sight. If both Morales and Pacquiao were in their primes, experienced and at their best weight, Morales doesn’t stand a chance. Morales beat a great athlete and good Manny Pacquiao, but far from the Manny Pacquiao that was at the top of his game. Morales was very good yes, but he gets beat by Pacquiao, Barrera and Marquez in their prime.

Mike Tyson, WHO CARES if they were Undefeated when Floyd “took a hiatus” or “retired” they had the option of STAYING undefeated but they were not capable something that he has been able to do… Floyd has more bouts than Cotto AND Margarito and he is Undefeated and has titles in MORE weight classes… Is Mayweather supposed to apologize because they lost? the man was not retired for 5 years…

Why do a fighter retire when he his is at his prime? He was fight onces a year,
He was training a sparring everyday, so was he tired? Burned out?
Manny has 56 total fight, Floyd has 46 fight. They are about even, both are good fighter and will never meet. That cool as soon there will, be more fights and fighter to meet when al hammon
Gives his ok for his fighter to meet top rank. Might be comming soon hopefully.

Mayweather has made so much money and so many right moves that his career is NOT dicatated by these other fighters who dream of his success..Mayweather has had 46 opportunities to lose a fight it NEVER took Manny to face GREAT fighters to book a loss especially early on ask Rustico Torrecampo and Singsurat, Martinez lost to Margo, Wlad smashed 3x to nobodies… People wanna explain away 4 lineal titles and Championships in 5 weight classes as “Easy” while going undefeated… Hardly easy or pedestrian..ATG level accomplishments

Posted June 6, 2014 3:18 pm

Look at khan finally made the move for 147 lb nobody expected 3 knock knock down,
I came close say khan will be way stronger and empress I even got into a argument with some one camparing khan to GGG as I said they have the same body type and are from around the same region. He needed this move up.
It end up with I don’t know geology, heck iam from Honolulu there the same Mideast Russia LOL

Oh well you are NOT the first won’t be the last.. As for Mayweathers retirement he did it because he felt like it who cares? Sugar Ray Leonard retired multiple times at the end of the day whenever Mayweather comes BACK he WINSSSSSSSSSSS! He is 37 years old and fighting 2x per year now against younger guys and he is STILL winning so whats your excuse? Why do fighters have to be undefeated ONLY to face Mayweather? Because he is SO good? I am a HUGE Manny fan but Morales, Barrera, Oscar, Cotto and Margo were NOT undefeated when he beat them… AGAIN Floyd is an enigma because NO ONE can get to him yet and guys cannot really accept what they are seeing…

Posted June 6, 2014 3:07 pm

It’s as I said morales was keep at a too low unnatural weight, he grew out of 135 lb and 140 lb what was he kept there starving himself? He grew weaker at the end of fight, because he was body was destroying itself for food.

I only gt started when you both put down PAC . As manny don’t defend himself, But I dont like pac history re written by you. As you are here all day. Be fair don’t put PAC down and in the last sentences hold Floyd up or you get the same in returned.
And I want many to chaange him self, he want to fight bigger guys , why are you fighting against this? He lose he lose, PAC fight better being the underdog. Forget jmm. And even then Martinez or canelo arent better boxer than PAC or jmm.why worry?

I’m not saying his fight was nothing against Morales. I just don’t like when people say he fought all these HOF fighters when they were in their prime. When Morales was close to his prime he beat Pac. After that Morales never looked good and was clearly past it. Yeah Morales had some decent wins last few years but they were against fighters who’s boxing skills were terrible. I think if the current version of Maidana fought Morales it would be a KO win for Maidana.

And Iam say he was retired, when they were all these undefeated fighters were at there tops.
So why did he retire? Ok he retired its ok, so peej why are you putting PAC victory over the Mexican as nothing. He cross out mararito, Oscar, now he say marales 2 was when he was over the hill fighter so he rules out PAC 3-1/2 years of fighting, to help Floyd look better.
And he gives Floyd the free pass to hide. See the conection?

Morales would not have fared well with Mayweather AT all Mike Tyson… All these Compubox numbers show me that you are an amateur ie “Workrate” Manny does NOT punch as much against Marquez because JMM is skilled enough to make him PAY for his mistakes… Thinking a guy who throws a ton of punches is gonna make that happen every night is foolish… There was NOT a single thing Erik Morales did that Mayweather does not do better… The are around the same age and look at the status of their careers? One guy is Unified Champ in 2 weight classes, Undefeated, P4P #1 the other has been washed up FOR years and was knocked out 3x along the way… Mind you I am a Morales fan also

Thethruth is Floyd was retired 3-1/2 year when all these fighter were undeafeated morales, Barretta , cotto, Mosley, Paul Williams , etc he was waiting for them to clear themself out.
Raymond and peej gives Floyd the kid pass here.

And on the flip side that piss me off as they claim there are not fan Boys the put down manny for cleaning out the Mexican fighter at there best, I was there so i know .fight after fight, many was the underdog on every fight. There’s were war super busy fighters, this was war a box and slugg fest.

So peej and Raymond . Raymond give PAC his mexican victorys but peej want to take that away.saying everything they wer not great fighters etc. your a fan boy peej , floyd your super man
He beat ever fighter already you told me that. They you fight daly to hold back PAC from fighting to fighters, fan boy number 1,

Manny was still learning in the Morales first fight. He was young and growing in experience. Morales got old because of Manny’s power and he was starting to blossom as a true well rounded fighter. He went on a reign of terror brutalizing everyone he fought. Now that was a prime experienced Manny Pacquiao. Morales has always been a scrapper. Even when he went up a few weight classes, he had no muscle definition and looked the same as he did as a 126 pound fighter. Morales just couldn’t handle the stronger punches.

Morales is born in 1976 he fought many in 2006 he was 30 years old. That in his prime. Jeez why do you make things up?
And he. Beat after He fought PAC, and. Eat maidana up knocking him down.and almost all round thill the last two when he ran out of gas. Because he was fighting at a too low weight miss manager fighter. I think he would have been a great strong fight at 147 lb. as he will pick up more power and he as busy as a bee, he might have been a 650-700 punches a rd fighter. Not sure if margarito was busier but both are wicket busy.

Morales was among my favorites ever since he KOed my man Junior Poison Jones back in the 90s. I wasn’t sold on him till that happened. He was a helluva puncher at 122-126. Faced all the best comp of his day, never ducked a challenge, went to war every time out. Props.

He all bones and run out of gas has all the time, that say he fighting and starving yourself. You have no power then Look at khan I sails the same he should be above 140 lb and he will gain power at 147 lb. and I was right he knock that bruiser down 3 times and this is running style , that talent. As your foot not fully planted. He could beat Floyd.he the type that would give flash knock down.
Speed is power with a flat foot on contact.

s-raymond or peej, same style of saying Floyd would beat morales, when they never fought. Look at the other side you don’t see PAC fans say many would beat Thurman or canelo or maidana.

If they did you both would be all over that poster, now if you say Floyd beat morales then I say no you are wrong. Morales beat maidana more convincingly than Floyd did. He d beater maidana up badly knock him down . he was no the way to a win but he ran out of gas. That because he was fighting at a wrong weight. Maidana is a 600 punch rd. fighter. Morales is busier .
Floyd would have the hardest time fighting busy fighter aas PAC ,Bradley, 1,000 punches RD maidana, porter these are too busy for Floyd to make them miss. He throw about 400-500 punches a rd, that is why maidana gave Floyd his hardest fight.

Morales style would work Floyd over badly he would win but that would be a hard fought S.D that he just clear.

Erik Morales was a warrior no doubt about it. He should have stayed at the lower weights, but money always changes things. I think he would have given anyone a fight at 126. He had a fighting spirit, ran from no one and fought them all. He was a bit of a complainer, but he came to fight. He should have retired after the Legendary Manny Pacquiao beat him twice. Morales can say that he did beat the greatest fighter of all time, Manny Pacquiao before Manny came into his own. And that is by far his greatest accomplishment. Good luck to him in retirement.

Posted June 6, 2014 1:10 pm

Another mismanaged fighter, same as khan feed the fighters khan stayed at 140 forever. You grow body grow fast right through the 135-147 lb why are these fighter making a career staying at a certain weight that below what there body say is there normal weight.
Morales was champ at 135 lb 2 time around PAC detrown him, but morales only when up to jWW and stayed there 140 he look like a starving fighter like a crack junky who dont eat.
Fired these managers they get set in in there ways and belive they know what best for there fighter.
And cants see the boy has grown into a man, IRS all about finding your limit jmm did and he best at 144 lb

Most importantly STOP fighting Morales! he was complaining that David Diaz had his head ringing YEARS ago at 135, pack it in whatever you have saved will go a long way in Mexico if you stay cool..

Anonymous, please man Mayweather would have made Morales look ridiculous as Great as he was at this best… I seriously don’t think he could beat Juan Manuel Marquez who has a crazy toolbox and Mayweather made look like a simpleton for one night…

Morales had one hell of a fighting spirit at his best, hope he really stays retired it was getting VERY ugly watching Garcia spin him around like a top.

I believe Morales, in his first year of eligibility, will be inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He deserves it.

A absolute modern Legend
The first fight with Barerra was most definitely the best
These two were like the Mexican version of Froch and Groves
They detested each other and could not be in the same room

Eric Morales worked his way up from nothing a real poverty stricken street kid and hated the privileged lifestyle that Barerra had
Although another genuine hard nut Barerra was brought up in a middle class wealthy family
Turned his back on a law career to fight

Erick was always a fans favourite and holds a place in all true boxing fans hearts

The hall of fame is a certainty

I WISH A very happy retirement to Erik ‘El Terrible’ Morales!

I was lucky enough to have tape of Morales challenging and defeating the great Mexican Warrior, Daniel Zaragoza as a youngster, but it was in his trilogy with my favourite fighter of the post 80s period, Marco Antonio Barrera that I truly got to appreciate Morales.

I totally loved his style of fighting and his attitude that if you hit me I’m gonna hit you back two or three times more, best exemplified in his battles with Barrera and Pacquiao. In his first fight with Manny, El Terrible beat Manny at his own game… He out-traded Manny, he outboxed Manny, he replied twice as hard to a Manny power shot and even had some fun turning southpaw in the last couple of stanzas! In my eyes he won the first meeting clearly.

I will never forget the first fight with MAB. It was breath taking!
I also believe he was the victim of a robbery vs David Diaz at Lightweight.

Yep, a great career and I will choose not to view his two defeats to Danny Garcia too harshly as he was way past his prime after two beatings from Pacquiao and out of his proper weight-class.

If I could have the fighting spirit of a fighter, I reckon El Terrible’s is the one I’d like to have!

Enjoy your retirement. You’ve earned it!
