SureLy ATG with wins over Hamed, Morales 2x, 3 division champ, just thought he had a REAL bad showing that fight. Shoulda went out guns blazing. JMM/MORALES both hold wins over Pac, while MAB was not competitive, I feel Morales/JMM on another level than Barrera
barrera got steamrolled in the first because he was past his best. he'd flatlined and was simply there for the taking.
by the time the second fight came off, he was past his best even more. the fact that he lasted all twelve rounds while giving a respectable account of himself speaks volumes about him.
had the fight of come off while barrera was prime, he'd of bust up that version of pac real good. but by the time it did take place barrera had clearly lost his fire.
MAB was a great fighter.
