Pac was better sure, no dispute there but erik`s timing was off in his punches, he was just falling short at times without Pac moving or doing anything defensively... his feet looked heavier, less fluid, you could tell it wasnt the same guy that gave his last great effort the previous year. He had slipped.
I know your probably gonna say that Erik fought like a lion & Pac invested in the body & thats why he stopped Erik.... but Morales usually did give his all even in his bad nights & its highly unlikely that Pac`s body shots would have TKOd a fresher Morales tho I admit, without those body shots, Morales probably hears the final bell.
To put it a different way - I think the Pac of the 1st fight beats the Morales of the 2nd fight by close but clear UD.
I think the Morales of the 1st fight & the Pac of the 2nd fight 1000% goes the full 12 rds & its a toss up whoever wins.
