Yeah I believe he's doing Erik a favor with statements like this. What pissed me off the most about Morales/Garcia, was the fact that the fuckin' HBO commentators, once again, overstepped their boundaries.
They already overstep their boundaries by trying be promoters, but they killed me because they REALLY tried retire Morales last weekend. I mean damn, WTF? They were doing the same shit when he fought Maidana...though we all thought Erik was shot when the contract was signed.
They saying shit like, "He's an old 34", "Too many ring wars", blah, blah, blah....and once Morales started to show some resolve, guess what you hear? "The old warrior is teaching the young cub", blah, blah, blah. "He may not have won the fight, but he won the event".
Again, them trying to retire this guy was a bit unprofessional, as if they were saying, "Erik looks a mess, and we dont want to cover anymore of his damn fights". The "new champion" still managed to look like shit against a fighter who's supposed to be retired.
JMM will do his best to promote this fight, because it's still a moneymaker. I'm wondering how huge their gate will be if they fought at the Texas stadium. Marquez needs to stop being the tune-up king in the meantime, and push this Morales fight before Erik ends up being 200 lbs between now and July.
