Erik Morales vs. Danny Garcia: Morales one sided defeat to Garcia, may consider retirement after a Marquez fight?

Erik Morales lost to a unanimous decision against Danny Garcia in Reliant Arena, Houston, Texas, United States though Morales already lost to the scales, he came out fighting for the win not for the title.

Even before Erik Moralesfight Manny Pacquiao in 2005 I am already a fan of him. Who will forget, if you happen to watch his brutal fight against compatriot Marco Antonio Barrera in 2000 for WBC and WBO Super bantamweight unification. Morales engage Barrera from start to finish in 12 exciting rounds. Morales won a split decision.

Again in 2002, they met for another 12 bruising round but unanimously lost to Barrera. In 2004 the third installment was set and Barrera won via majority decision for featherweight supremacy.

After his lost to a trilogy with Barrera, instead of picking lesser opponents to at least assure a comeback win. Morales would choose to take on Manny Pacquiao who is fresh from a win against his conqueror – Marco Antonio Barrera.

Morales win against Pacquiao in a bloody 12-round-war and handle the Filipino rising star his only defeat from that year till now.

Overall, Morales lost his trilogy against Pacquaio and Barrera. But a boxing fan, hardcore or not, would love how Morales handle six equally exciting, bloody and bruising fight.

Back to his defeat recently, against Garcia, I think the road is now coming to an end for Morales. I think, and in my honest opinion he needs to call it quits.  But oopss… not-so-fast, this writer want one more request from Morales.

The Missing Equation.

I wanted Erik “El Terrible” Morales to please fight compatriot Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez before retiring and hanging those boxing gloves for good. If that fight materializes Morales for me – Is the fighter that fights the best-of-the-best in his era and his division.

Imagine if that fight happens – meaning he had fought Manny Pacquiao, Marco Antonio Barrera and Juan Manuel Marquez. The idea is that each man fought against each other and from that history will tell who among the four greatest boxers in this era would be. 

This is the lost equation if this fight will not happen. Boxing fans would you agree with me?

How I love, if the match-up would be.
