Mexican ring legend Erik Morales has announced a tune-up fight, possibly in Cancun, before fighting his retirement fight in his native Tijuana. “My desire is a tune-up fight in late August or early September to see how my body is and if I can keep fighting. Maybe my last fight is between October and December. I want to retire at my best,” said Morales. The name of former world champion Humberto “Zorrita” Soto has been prominently mentioned as Morales’ opponent in his last bout, capping a remarkable 20-year professional career.
