Mauricio Sulaiman, WBC executive secretary, said Tuesday that Erik “El Terrible” Morales will receive the belt that accredits him as a super lightweight WBC world champion this Saturday after winning the crown last Saturday in Las Vegas. Erik won the vacant 140 pounds WBC world title by beating Pablo Cesar Cano, who didn’t come out for the eleventh round, so it was declared a technical knockout in favor of the Tijuana fighter, who from that moment became a champion in four divisions, holding the super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight and super lightweight titles, all from the WBC.
