Eight-division world champion and reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao may be in the thick of preparations for his upcoming title bout against WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion Keith Thurman in Las Vegas later this month, but he wasn't too busy to link up with an old rival.
The 40-year old boxing legend, who is currently training in Los Angeles, met up and spent a bit of time with an opponent he knows all too well in Erik "El Terrible" Morales.
An absolute legend in the sport of boxing, Morales amassed a 52-9 record with 36 wins coming via knockout in his professional career that spanned nearly two decades. The Tijuana-native became the first Mexican-born boxer in history to capture world titles in four weight divisions, reaching the pinnacle in the super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight, and super lightweight divisions.
Morales and Pacquiao crossed paths three times in their storied careers, with Morales taking the first by unanimous decision in 2005, and Pacquiao winning the last two via stoppage in 2006, on his road to becoming one of the greatest boxers of all time.
Morales retired in 2012 after back-to-back losses to Danny Garcia.
