Erik Morales On Pacquiao vs. Mayweather: ‘It’s not gonna happen”
Three-division world champion Erik Morales is convinced the dream fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, is just that – it’s just a dream.
When asked for his analysis about how the much anticipated “Super Bowl of Boxing” event might play out, Morales replied, “When they are gonna make the fight – talk to me. I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
When asked why he thinks it won’t happen, if Mayweather is scared to sign the contract, the man who boxed 25 rounds with Pacquiao in three separate WBC title clashes added, “Because it’s never gonna happen. It’s not gonna happen. (Then, with a smile he added) Mayweather is playing with all you guys.”
Morales (49-6, 34 KO’s), who made his pro debut in 1993 and turns 34 on September 1, will box against Scotland’s Willie Limond (33-2, 8 KO’s) in Mexico City, Mexico for the vacant WBC Diamond Super Lightweight championship on September 11.
