Marquez-Morales Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Unofficially, current WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez apparently has agreed to face Erik ‘Terrible’ Morales on April 9 in Las Vegas. It looks like Marquez had his financial demands met, but will not put his belts on the line. The WBC Diamond championship will likely be at stake. “The fight is a go,” said Morales. “He realized that he had no other option.” Morales is now training in his native Tijuana and soon plans to move to the refreshing mountain air of the Otomi Ceremonial Center where he has trained for many of his big fights. He will be accompanied by his father and trainer Jose “Olivaritos” Morales and fitness trainer Raúl Robles.
