Erik Morales vs. David Diaz, does Morales still have it?

First of all, I respect Erik Morales for his always exciting performance around the ring and his classic bouts with Marco Antonio Barrera and Manny Pacquiao. He is a great fighter who always gave his all inside the ring and is a very tough opponent to beat. His recent trilogy with Manny was one of the best. However, his loss has been accumulating lately and everyone seems to believe he is a washed-up fighter. His latest bout will be against WBC Lightweight champ David Diaz whom I should say that I haven't seen any of his fights, to be honest. But despite what the public thinks, I still think Morales still has it and I hope he wins this fight. It's true that he had a hard time making weight in superfeatherweight so lightweight should be good for him. If he boxes smart and don't brawl like he did with Manny Pacquiao then he will win this one (although Erik CAN brawl, it's best to be on the safe side). Don't get carried away Morales and Viva Mexico!
