Morales vs Escobedo?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Word is that Mexican ring legend Erik “El Terrible” Morales (49-6, 34 KOs) could make the next step in his comeback against former U.S. Olympian Vicente Escobedo (22-2, 14 KOs) on July 17 at the Estadio Caliente in Morales’ hometown of Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Sources report that the bout would be for the WBC International welterweight title won by Morales against Nicaraguan José Alfaro in March. No contract has been signed at this point, but things are far enough along that press conferences in Los Angeles, Tijuana and Mexico City are being arranged for the bout, which would be televised in Mexico by Televisa.
