Erik Morales goes his fourth title in a fourth different weight class when he takes on WBC Lightweight champion David Diaz live from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. HBO will televise the fight live on pay-per-view at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
A future Hall-Of-Famer, Morales (48-5, 34 KO’s) is known for being part of the biggest fights in the last five years. His trilogies with both Marco Antonio Barrera and Manny Pacquiao will be talked about for decades to come. However, it is his fight tonight against David Diaz that will be the biggest of his career. A victory makes him the only Mexican boxer to ever win a fourth title in as many weight classes. A loss could put an end to a historic career.
Diaz (32-1-1, 17 KO’s) earned the WBC title after knocking out Jose Armando Santa Cruz in the 10th round of their fight back in August of 2006. Diaz was behind on all three of the judges scorecards, but came out aggressive in the 10th round and knocked out Santa Cruz. Even as a champion, Diaz has never fought anyone like Morales and will definitely have his hands full tonight.
Make sure to catch all the action live tonight on HBO PPV at 9pm ET/6pm PT. The under card will pit Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. against unknown Louis Brown.
