It's very clear that Morales is having a big problem with his weight. When he fought Manny at 130 he was so starved out he looked like he was going to colapse. Now before he fought Raheem he could'nt even make 134.

Morales had definitely slowed down since moving up in weight. The question now is what is he going to do when he goes up against Manny for their rematch.

Will Morales train very very hard just to make weight then turn out to be an empty shell of his former self or will he become a ferocious lion hell bent on not loosing for a second time in a row?

yes morales definitely had weight problems even before he fought manny pacquiao. in yesterday's fight, he failed to make the agreed 133 lbs weight. during his training for the raheem fight, instead of focusing on how to beat raheem, he was busy shedding excess pounds and diet tricks to achieve the desired weight. because his 5'8 tall, fighting at either 130 or 135 is a difficult in that he has to watch his weight all the time, even when not training. that spelled his doom yesterday against raheem.

but as all great champions always do, they move on and come back strong. rest assured if a rematch would eventually happen, we will be seeing a different morales and perhaps come out and fight like he did during his first meeting with pacman.

yes we could still expect great things from morales.
