While speaking with Boxingtalk.com last week, Erik Morales manager Fernando Beltran let it be known that he feels Morales is the "true" Mexican superstar. "All you have to do is look at Erik's PPV numbers and they tell the story. Barrera didn't do shit in his last fight and he had Shane Mosley on the card so it's clear to me and it should be clear to everyone else that the Mexican people recognize know who their true champion is. Erik is a PPV star, Barrera is not. It's that simple," stated Beltran.
