Morales looses…is he shot?

January 23, 2006

Erik Morales suffered his first loss by way of knockout over the weekend. Is he a shot fighter? I personally believe he needs to take some time off and get a tune up fight or two. Morales will be thirty this year and he may only have a few good fights left. I don’t want to count him out just yet. Manny Pacquiao is a devastating puncher.

I don’t think we’ve seen the last of El Terrible.

Predictions:Manny Pacquiao vs Erik Morales

January 21, 2006

MoralesPacquiao_1_031905.jpgAs much as I like Manny Pacquiao, I can’t see him winning the fight this evening. Although Erik Morales lost his last fight, I don’t think his confidence has waned.

I love Pacquiao heart and determination, but Morales is the smarter fighter. I think Pacquiao has problems staying focused in later rounds. This is evident when you look at his first fight with Morales and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Long story short, I have Morales winning by decision.
