Legendary Mexican boxing superstar Erik Morales responded immediately to the comments of ex-champion Humberto Soto, who said he would knock out Morales in Erik’s planned farewell fight.
“On Saturday I’ll be in the front row waiting for you to win your fight. I’m going to get the contract signed so you can’t back down….I would have already signed the contract, but I don’t want to distract from your difficult fight. When you’re done with the Japanese I’ll have the pen and the contract and we’ll see if you run.”
Morales added that he’s still one of the best fighters in the world and he’s retiring because the time has come and not because he can no longer do it.
