In what was his last professional bout, Erik “El Terrible” Morales was outworked and bullied by David Diaz to lose a 12 round unanimous decision last night in Chicago. Morales (48-6, 34 KOs) announced after the bout that this was his last fight. Both fighters did well to press the action. Diaz (33-1-1, 17 KOs) jumped all over Morales from the opening bell. Morales landed a flush right that floored Diaz in the 1st, but Diaz was the clearly the aggresor. In the later round, Diaz kicked it in high gear, constantly pushing forward, punishing Morales to the head and body.
Judges at ringside scored the bout 114-11, 115-113, 115-112, all for Diaz.
