Erik Morales

Time to really give it up for good.

Amazing career full of awesome fights and great ups and downs. It is incedibly sad to see such a great fighter fall like he did last night. He should've hung them up after the Maidana war, which showed his last bit of greatness that he still had and provided us with the wars we've come to love from Morales.

Yeap sure looks like TIO cashed in all his chips last night and still wants another whooping in Tijuana, I'm sure they'll set up that ADIOS with a good midget taxi driver........

Is Danny García that good? I think he's not, he surely has power and a quite good chin, but, could he earn a victory against the likes of Marquez, Bradley or even Brandon Rios? I don't think so...

Morales should hang the gloves after one more fight in México IMO, he deserves to say goodbye in front of his fans in his hometown. It doesn't matter against who.

Garcia has good timing, power, and determination. He is also pretty fluid, which is also a bonus. He's definitely beatable, but you need to show up on top of your game or else you're going to have a tough fight.

at this point Danny Garcia will give any top Jr Welter weight a run for their money, the kid is very possibly at his prime peak..had the fight been allowed to continue, he could have put Moralez in a deep coma..

Now with Matthysse as the WBC mandatory challenger I can't wait this fight to happen.

I hope Garcia doesn't get too cocky about that hook of his though. He countered Khan and Morales brutally with it, if he adds a new weapon or two to the table, he could become a big name fighter if marketed right.

I'd like to see him fight Rios. Seems like an obvious match up. I think Rios would expose him badly.

Garcia would have to really develop his jab and more than a good counter left hook to top Rios.
