    Erik Morales has announced his retirement, forgoing his plans of having a farewell fight before hanging up his gloves for good, according to a report by Salvador Rodriguez of ESPNDeportes.com.

    Morales had stepped away from the sport once before, after his August 2007 loss to David Diaz, a defeat that had marked four losses in a row, including two to Manny Pacquiao and one to Zahir Raheem.

    At the time, he cited a ringing in his head when Diaz hit him.

    I wish him and his family all the best. I hope he's done right with his money and can live out his days comfortably.

    That's great news. I don't want to see him giving lesser fighters his name on their resume.

    I hope El terrible keeps his hands in the boxing industry. San Diego and Tijuana have a huge boxing scene. I know he is respected by all in TJ from the cartels to the paupers and all in between. I am happy and hope he stays permanently retired.
