Morel hampered by back pain

WBO interim bantamweight titleholder Eric Morel pulled out of Saturday’s bout with champion Fernando Montiel citing the condition of “sciatica,” which he says claims has decreased his athletic performance 70-90%. The main symptom of sciatica is lower back pain. The WBO Championship Committee has requested an “interim certification” from Morel by 4PM Thursday, which includes a prognosis for his recovery and his treating physician’s opinion of whether he can reasonably return to active training and competition and reschedule his fight with Montiel within the terms of the purse bid. Morel was diagnosed by Dr. Patrick Anderson.
