Erik "El Terrible" Morales, the first Mexican fighter to become a four division world champion and who is preparing for his rematch against Danny "Swift" Garcia taking place next Saturday, is closing his camp and is ready to travel to New York for the inaugural night of fights at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn on October 20. Morales' unified lightweight world championship title challenge against Garcia headlines a night of four world championship bouts that will be telecast live on SHOWTIME®.
Morales, one of the few Mexican fighters still maintaining his camp at the high altitude of the Centro Ceremonial Otomi located in Temoaya, Estado de Toluca, Mexico, has spent already 12 grueling weeks in the mountains under the guidance of his father/trainer Jose "Olivaritos" Morales.
"I had a very good training camp and I am ready," said Morales. "All I have to say is that I am ready to put a great show next Saturday night."
