Fantastic , top tier , upper echelon boxer !!! Boxing was and is better for the likes Eric “El terrible” Morales. Turning southpaw against MPAC round 12 ? Wtf . None the less BRILLIANT !!!…Posted June 12, 2014 4:06 pm
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..Posted June 9, 2014 12:03 pm
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,,,Posted June 8, 2014 7:30 am
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.
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.Posted June 7, 2014 3:23 pm

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……Posted June 7, 2014 2:34 pm
nope. they’d still get their ass kicked. they were too small in their primesPosted June 7, 2014 12:20 pm
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.Posted June 7, 2014 12:11 pm
God Bless Eric MoralesPosted June 7, 2014 3:44 am
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 fudgesiclePosted June 7, 2014 1:03 am
Erik’s two loses to Pac were both because Erik cannot make weight anymore.Posted June 7, 2014 12:17 am
Barretta and morales were fighter real fighters. F&uck broner all mouth
morales had a great career.Posted June 6, 2014 8:37 pm
I give only 60-80 credit to chatch weight fight.
What I’m saying is Hatton and Marquez could have got a title fight at 140 but they chose to fight Mayweather.
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 speak as SREDMOND I don’t need friend on this site and I don’t need people to agree with me..” – That’s because SREDMOND uses a half dozen other screen names to agree with him. They’reare his make-believe friends like Supreme Court, Public Enemy, etc, etc.Posted June 6, 2014 6:56 pm

That rainbow belt junk was from cotto PAC fight that they made a belt for catch weights fighter or something.Posted June 6, 2014 6:50 pm
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
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.Posted June 6, 2014 6:33 pm
Another sad day for Pactards. Jmm didn’t call out Floyd he said he the p4p champ not manny.
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.
Another sad day for Pactards
Floyd was coming out of retirement .
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
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
Ricky a140 lb jr WW he also had to gain 7 lb to fight Floyd and he was co eating on Floyd a lot
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 DogsPosted June 6, 2014 5:55 pm
Retire means protect the record or fraud man.Posted June 6, 2014 5:47 pm
Floyd, retried as chicken do.run when the going get tough To protect his record,
Another sad day for Pactards and tomato can.
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.
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.Posted June 6, 2014 4:46 pm
YOU GOT BUSTED
duckPosted June 6, 2014 3:55 pm
Another sad day for Pactards
Sred… Don’t waste your time man.
Mayweather NEVER truly retired and its his career to manage… Floyd Mayweather has more contests under his belt than the Great Sugar Ray Leonard ever did… You act like this boxer is under obligation to fight on a schedule that you prefer… His opponents are supposed to take advantage of his Ring Rust and knock him out… But they cannot !!! 21 month layoff and he DOGS Marquez, 17 months and he knocks Ortiz out… There is NO ONE like Money MayweatherPosted June 6, 2014 3:47 pm
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…Posted June 6, 2014 3:45 pm
Wait, wait, wait, zz……… I don’t have all day, I gave you the chance yesterday closing as it dont matter as that canelo would happen next year so we can talk about it then. But no you had to win . retarded me will be back…Posted June 6, 2014 3:35 pm
Why do a fighter retire when he his is at his prime? He was fight onces a year,
SREDMOND I said they were undeafeated when Floyd retired and I included cotto margarito etc tooPosted June 6, 2014 3:23 pm
YOU GOT BUSTED
You JUST post UNDER the NAME SREDMOND and NOTHING else?
Is that CORRECT?Posted June 6, 2014 3:21 pm
YOU GOT BUSTED
SREDMOND DO you THINK it’s WISE for YOU to CONTINUE DUCKING answering the QUESTION?Posted June 6, 2014 3:21 pm
Raymond, I explained already peej don’t give PAC credit for fighting the mexicans read his post. He just said he hate guys labeling those fight as top fighters, “go fight with him,. You do give pac credit and that your are RETARDED too but fair.Posted June 6, 2014 3:20 pm
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 accomplishmentsPosted June 6, 2014 3:18 pm
Look at khan finally made the move for 147 lb nobody expected 3 knock knock down,
Are you RETARDED who does not give Manny cred for beating Morales and Barrera? those are a couple of his BEST wins… I give him cred for those fights they started a run that made him a superstar I think your issues with the language are getting in the way…Posted June 6, 2014 3:09 pm
Mike Tyson, I speak as SREDMOND I don’t need friend on this site and I don’t need people to agree with me.. Looks like you are becoming frustrated that I don’t agree with some of your assertions? 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.Posted June 6, 2014 2:58 pm
Yea you have to separate that that why cotto and Martinez I’d a super hard fight to call. I like cotto.but logic say Martinez, but I might change my mind what the heck.Posted June 6, 2014 2:53 pm

Peej , nothing wrong about picking wrong I just hate you to say. Floyd win a matchup he didn’t fought the thrith is we don’t know, your worn pick say this, we don’t know. 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.
Peej theres a word for that, brainless
My problem is I pick with my heart and not with my head. If I really dislike a fighter like Tarver except when he fought Danny Green I always pick against themPosted June 6, 2014 2:40 pm
I posted the pick with heart commentPosted June 6, 2014 2:39 pm
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.Posted June 6, 2014 2:38 pm
My problem is I pick with my heart and not with my head. If I really dislike a fighter like Tarver except when he fought Danny Green I always pick against themPosted June 6, 2014 2:38 pm
And I said Floyd would win but he would have the fight of his life. He knock maidana down Floyd didn’t do that. And he beat maidana up more than Floyd. But he ran out of gas lost the last 2 rd and lost. Isay he busier than maidana and Floyd even had trouble it’s itch maidana.
Really. What fights have I gotten wrong? Also I admit when I’m wrong. I got the recent Donaire fight wrong because of some fishy stuff happening in China. I got the Froch fight right 1 round off of the stoppage. I know I’ve gotten some other fights wrong and right. My problem is I pick with my heart and not with my head. If I really dislike a fighter like Tarver except when he fought Danny Green I always pick against themPosted June 6, 2014 2:35 pm
Morales didn’t get old cause of Pacs power. Mores was fighting way above his prime weights. Morales was the truth. He boxed Pac which was why he won. Pac can’t handle boxers. He looks terrible against them. Pac was on his tear when he fought Morales. Morales was motivated and beat PacPosted June 6, 2014 2:33 pm
If this is true Morales is 5 years away from the HOF!Posted June 6, 2014 2:29 pm
Yes SREDMOND show us what you got .. lolPosted June 6, 2014 2:29 pm
SREDMOND, see you are now talking as peej, both of you predict fight, so why don’t you predict the fight I this series as I ask you too. You never say your pick? Afraid to expose your boxing prediction that will be wrong? Show us what you got, I did and Iam 8 wins and 1 lost nom more really before that.
Peej has a terrible record, it tell how much you know about fighting styles and matchup, and we get a answer if your right or wrong. Prove yourself or your just all talk.Posted June 6, 2014 2:27 pm
SREDMOND, read the end I came back and said Raymond at lease give PAC his credit over the Mexican fighter, but not peej.
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 alsoPosted June 6, 2014 2:20 pm
Hecdog, Manny gets NO pass for losing to Morales for “learning” he was 45 plus fights into his career and had won titles multiple divisions… Give El Terrible his due for besting Pac Man during Morales last truly GREAT effort in the ring…Posted June 6, 2014 2:15 pm
Why do fighters have to be “Undefeated” before FMJ faces them? He just beat UNDEFEATED 13 years younger, 17 pounds heavier Canelo Alvarez and guys still wanna complain? If being “Undefeated is the only way Mayweather can get cred” then why do guys still wanna see him face Pac Man who has 4 legit losses the last one a CRUSHING KO??Posted June 6, 2014 2:11 pm
Mike Tyson WHERE EXACTLY do I know Manny for beating Morales? his wins over Barrera, 2x Morales the final one making him QUIT are amongst his best victories… You are starting to come apart on the board, don’t feel bad I have seen ALOT of guys unravel on here.Posted June 6, 2014 2:08 pm
Mike Tyson, we have reached the point where your shaky grasp of the language is making it difficult to understand your posts… Morales NEVER fought Maidana what world are you living in? Yes my opinion is that Morales would not have stood a chance against Mayweather who was murder at 130 pounds and a legit threat to KO guys at the weight..Posted June 6, 2014 2:06 pm
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.
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
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.Posted June 6, 2014 1:50 pm
He morales. beat maidana after PAC and moralas 2 so he was still going strong at fight 2 your logic don’t hold true or Floyd more worst shape than . if morales was a over the hill then.Posted June 6, 2014 1:43 pm
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?
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.Posted June 6, 2014 1:31 pm
Morales beat Pac I his prime. He was past it when he lost the last 2 timesPosted June 6, 2014 1:27 pm
Hecdog, morales retire at 140 lb a jr WW . He 5.8. Even jmm and PAC who shorter when up to 147 lb
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 .
Morales style would work Floyd over badly he would win but that would be a hard fought S.D that he just clear.Posted June 6, 2014 1:19 pm
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.
excellent decision. thank you for the wars el terrible.Posted June 6, 2014 12:42 pm
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..Posted June 6, 2014 12:11 pm
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…Posted June 6, 2014 12:09 pm

Eric Morales worked his way up from nothing a real poverty stricken street kid and hated the privileged lifestyle that Barerra had
Erick was always a fans favourite and holds a place in all true boxing fans hearts
The hall of fame is a certaintyPosted June 6, 2014 9:00 am
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!
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!Posted June 6, 2014 8:59 am
