Ivan Morales remains on course for 2015 world title shot
On the back of another successful year that has produced five more victories, Ivan Morales is not getting carried away as a world super-flyweight title shot continually moves closer to a reality.
The 22 year-old, who is the younger brother of ring legend Erik ‘El Terrible’ Morales, has now amassed a 24-0 record in his five years as a professional and recently stopped Manuel Jimenez in two rounds to score his 14th knockout.
Morales is currently ranked number eleven with the WBC and stands on the fringes of a possible opportunity to face champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, although the Mexican is cautious as he plans for another year being a contender.
“I want to make my way to the top this year, but I know I need more experience,” Morales told World Boxing News.
“2013 was a good year for me and more wins can help me develop my speed and strength so that I can take on the champions. I need to improve a lot in all aspects.
“I may be back in March, although I don’t have any names in mind and I am still looking for a world championship fight in 2015,” he added.
