Erik Morales-Jorge Barrios Likely Off Due To Court Ruling

BoxingScene.com was advised that Jorge Barrios was denied permission to travel from Argentina to Mexico for a scheduled fight this Saturday with Erik “El Terrible” Morales in Tijuana. According to sources in Argentina, a hearing judge overseeing Barrios’ criminal case would not grant the former champion permission to leave the country.

Barrios is currently on trial for aggravated homicide in connection to an automobile accident which occurred earlier this year in Buenos Aires. Barrios lost control of his automobile and crashed into several vehicles. The accident killed a 20-year-old pregnant woman.

At the time of the accident, Barrios is alleged to have been speeding and ran a red light. He fled the scene of the accident, but his lawyer brought him to a local police station a few hours later. Promoters in Mexico are hunting for a late replacement.
