Barrera 117-112 Morales

Excellent fight. 117-112 was possibly a little generous to Barrera, but I did think he was the winner. The last round wasn't a legitimate knockdown on replay but I counted it as the judges had to. I scored two rounds even, 3 and 7, I'd have to look over them again but they could have gone either way. Even if they had gone to Morales though Barrera would still be winning. I thought he blocked a lot of shots and was throwing the harder/more purposeful punches. He won the majority of the exchanges in my book and set the tone at the start to get the first two rounds, although the first was close with Morales countering well. All in all an excellent fight, big credit going to both fighters.
