Proboxing-fans.com had previously broken the news that the (fake) WBC Light Welterweight title bout between Erik Morales and Danny Garcia, based on a press release from the WBC. Morales required surgery to remove 160 gall bladder stones over the Holidays, and obviously would have been unable to make the original January 28 fight date. In original press release, Morales was quoted as saying "“I asked not to cancel the fight, just to re scheduled it and now they’re trying to do it, I hope that can be fixed this week," and there was some speculation as to whether the fight would be merely rescheduled to mid-February or early March. The word is now official - the fight is back on and for March 24. Morales will be fit to resume training in early January.
