Was Morales a tune-up for Maidana? I hope not
A tune-up is any "expected" win en route to a bigger payday...even if the opponent is world-class. It's someone the favorite is supposed to beat, even if it isn't a foregone conclusion.

For instance, Josesito Lopez was a tune-up for Ortiz looking ahead to Alvarez.

Josesito is neither "a journeyman type fighter, or a fighter that is washed up to the point of being one really."
