Has it all caught up to him? He got absolutely owned by Zahir Raheem (who?). Now, of course, Zahir's got the Winky Wright problem. I don't expect him to really fight any top-level compitition - plus he's HBO and Showtime's got a lot of the good Lightweights.

Now Barrera probably gets his pick of Morales or Pacquiao if he gets by Peden.

That fight was VERY dissappointing. It didn't seem like Raheem was really all that impressive as much as it seemed Morales just didn't want to do anything.

According to this, the Pacquiao-Morales rematch is still on.

It might be, but I'm sure the purse is definitely being renegotiated. Morales dropping back down to 126 (even though it's only four pounds) also doesn't bode well for him. I'm going to even go out on a limb here and predict the Granite-Jawed Morales gets the first knockdown of his career (I don't count the phantom knockdown in Morales-Barrera I).

Well, considering he jest about got knocked down by Raheem....

Morales looked like a shot fighter there, frankly. Raheem was showing some pretty clever stuff while his confidence was up, but at the end, you could see him starting to tighten up as Morales showed a bit of life.

Overall, a fairly impressive showing by Raheem.

Now for something completely different coming up, the Howard Davis Jr.-like boxing skills of Sam Peter vs. the George Chuvalo-like rock jaw of Klitschko the minor...
