In his prime, Morales only lost once in a close decision to a prime Barrera and dominated and up and coming Pacquiao. Morrales, Barrera, Pacquiao, and even the star power of Hamed and excitement of Kelly forever changed the importance of the little guys. Morales is a legend and had one of the best right hands I’ve ever seen.

I will miss his beautifully timed rights but it is time to go.

His nickname says it all about this great, legendary warrior……..El Terrible!!!

Thanks for all the exciting fights Erick. One couldn’t ask anymore of a fighter.
My favorite was Morales vs Barrera 1.
This guy is a legend and so is Barrera.

The first fight with Barrera is up there with Zale vs Graziano, Hagler vs Hearns and Ali vs Frazer that alone makes El Terrible a legend a true fan favourite, warrior and also some forget a tasty little boxer.

It was a fantastically timed hook that Garcia threw, shame it was on Morales. It was sad to see a legend like Erik on the receiving end of a punch he wouldnt of been hit with in his prime. One of the most exciting fighters Ive watched as a boxing fan.
