“Our deepest condolences to our partner’s family and loved ones of Erik Morales for the loss of his mother.
Rest in peace.”
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman also made sure to let Morales know that he’s thinking about him during this tough time.
Mi más sentido pésame.

“My deepest condolences.”
Morales had been linked to a July 16 exhibition showdown with his former rival Marco Antonio Barrera. Fight fans were confused when it was quickly announced that Barrera would instead face Jesus Soto Karass on June 11. There’s no word on whether or not the passing of Morales’ mother put a halt to the planned Barrera bout.
We at FIGHT SPORTS send our condolences to Erik Morales and the loved ones of his mother.
