erik showed his best at the rubber match. he went toe-to-toe with manny.
he guts is very impressive and never gave up a no-fear gladiator in him.

as we watched the fight of pacquiao-morales 3... it was crystal clear that
erik morales gave his all... heart, body and soul... but they ain't enough
to defeat manny pacquiao.

in erik's loss... he accepted defeat and acknowledged the victory of manny.
ain't erik a warrior worth the respect of a champion? absolutely!


aihihihi!!! :)

Dude, what r u on? EM got clobbered and there was no reason to continue the fight. It's easy for you to say cuz u'r not in the ring getting beaten to a pulp.


It's not a question of what I am on. He did shake his corner off. A "no" answer is sufficient.


Dude, the circumstances of Erik's so called 'no mas' is way different from Duran's. Do you even know why Duran did that? He quit because he was annoyed that Leonard was not fighting him head on. He felt that he would quit then and there and just get ready for the next fight. He wasn't hurt at all. I urge you to look it up. That is way more humiliating and degrading than what Erik did.



Yep, he ate that big steak before the fight and he claimed stomach cramps. Sound familiar?


Here yah go, hmmm. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWXur2ch ... ed&search=

with the kind of pride and spirit em has, his quitting after the 3rd kd should not be counted against him. instead it should be credited for him for keeping his dignity intact even on a losing cause.

did you notice that wink that they say he did to signal to his corner that he was quitting? it may not be a wink at all but could be involuntary muscle spasms as a result of all the pusnishment he had just received.

listen to the commentators during the second kd (the first kd of the 3rd rd). everybody was saying "thats it! thats it!" and when eric rose to his feet to face pac man again, they went, "what spirit!" nobody believed that he could ever rise again after that second kd. when the third kd came, eric might have been able to stand again, but walk? his legs must have been rubber so he stayed on the canvas. better make that decision to quit look like it was his free will than being waved off by the referee because he is stumbling on the stage like a drunk.

and lastly, his father is in his corner, remember? which would you prefer, worry your father to death by stumbling like a drunk, or stay on the canvas and at least coherently tell him later the reasons behind your decision?

eric was a warrior till the end!
