Morales, Pacquiao To Hold Press Conference

11.11.05 - Three-time world champion Erik 'El Terrible' Morales and two-time world champion Manny Pacquiao will be in Las Vegas on Saturday and in Los Angeles on Tuesday to discuss their upcoming fiery rematch at 'The Battle!' scheduled for the Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, on Saturday, Jan. 21. "This is a fight we're very excited about," said Bob Arum. "Both Morales and Pacquiao give it their all, each and every second while in the ring."

Morales beat Pacquiao in a 12-round scorcher last March 19. Freddie Roach, chief trainer for Pacquiao, was ticked afterwards, contending Pacquiao was hampered by the brand of his gloves.

"By contract, we had to use a certain brand in the first fight," said Roach. "That's not going to happen this time. We're going to be wearing Reyes, a real punchers glove. I think it makes a big difference this time."

Morales vs. Pacquiao II will be promoted by Top Rank, Wynn Las Vegas and be available on HBO Pay Per View.
