Erik Morales fighting again Sept. 11

August 12, 2010 |  5:54 pm

Mexico's Erik Morales, the last man to defeat Manny Pacquiao, will continue his career comeback Sept. 11 in Mexico City against Scotland's Willie Limond.

The popular Morales (49-6, 34 KOs) will appear at a news conference Monday in Los Angeles to discuss why he's still fighting after a 2007 decision loss to David Diaz that was expected to be his last bout. Morales claimed a March decision over welterweight Jose Alfaro in Mexico, and is now participating in this pay-per-view ($29.99) card at Monumental Plaza de Toros.

Morales' Los Angeles appearance will be at 1 p.m. at Olvera Street.
