Default Re: Rank Barrera, Morales and Marquez

Likewise, the majority of fight fans on this site seem to think Morales deserved the nod in his second fight with Barrera, whereas I personally scored all three of their encounters together in favour of The Baby Faced Assassin. Depending on how you view these fights, you could conceivably have them in any order and be able to back it up with solid reasoning.

For what it's worth, I consider MAB to have been the most complete fighter of the three.
