Current WBC Ssuper lightweight world champion Erik “Terrible” Morales underwent emergency surgery today after a gallbladder pain and it is not known if this will affect his next fight. El “Terrible” was operated for a small stone in the gallbladder just this morning (December 21). Fernando Fernandez, part of the coaching staff accompanying Morales, said “We are awaiting the medical report of the doctor to decide whether he can fight and how long it can take to recover.” Erik is scheduled to make his first defense of the WBC 140lb title on January 28. On the same card, super welterweight star James Kirkland will face Carlos Molina in the co-feature bout.
