Wrong. Before the Pacquiao rematches, Morales fought Zahir Raheem at 135. So 130 was no longer "Erik's weight class".
Then Freddie Roach forced him to move back down to 130, something he had trouble doing. Morales couldn't say no to such a big payday, and fell into the trap.
Morales has since asked Pacquiao to fight him without making hiim drain himself, and of course Pacquiao didn't respond.
