Default What weight is Crolla Morales going to be?

Apologies if this has already been answered but what weight will it be at?

If it's at light welter surely Crolla is giving too much weight to Morales.

Fair play to him either way for taking the fight.

One article claimed that Crolla said it was at 138, others have said 140.

if it says 138 do you really think Morales comes in there?? will just give Crolla a few more quid.

Dunno.

I am sure the fight could have been made at 140 if Morales had insisted.

Not like he needs Crolla is it?

He'll earn a good payday and maybe pull an upset over an old fighter. He doesn't have much to lose.

How can his trainer justify fighting Erik Morales at 138/140 when he stated that Willie Limond was too big for him. The fight with Willie was going to be at the lightweight limit wasn't it.

Yep wouldn't be suprised if another Mexican gets an undeserved title fight.

I like Crolla but no way does he deserve a title shot. They would be basically giving the title to Morales so he can get the record, it would be worse than Alvarez/Hatton. Morales doesn't really deserve a shot either but at least he pushed Maidana all the way, Crolla's beaten Andy Morris and John Watson FFS.
