Morales wants to fight Pacquiao for the fourth time

Giving up is the last thing on his mind.

Mexican boxer Erik "El Terible" Morales is calling out  for a fourth fight against Filipino boxing champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao after  his two losses in their trilogy.

Morales was the last man to beat  Pacquiao, accepting  a unanimous decision win against the Filipino boxer in March 2009.

However, Pacquiao was dominant in their two subsequent rematches, knocking out Morales in the 10th round of their second fight and then in the third round of their trilogy fight.

Ignoring  those two losses, Morales  continued his boxing career, succeeding  a title at the junior welterweight division. In an interview with Boxing Scene, he said  that he wants to face  Pacquiao for a fourth time, to fight  for his poor showing in their second and third fights.

"I accepted a fight with Pacquiao in a division where I knew I couldn’t make a weight," Morales said, referring to their bouts in the super featherweight division. "My life outside the ring was in shambles."

"I wasn’t in shape for the Pacquiao fights, because I wasn’t putting my full concentration on boxing," he added.

Morales claimed  that he still has what it takes to beat Pacquiao again.
