Morales definitely won that second fight, it was the clearest win of the trilogy ruined by a disgraceful decision.

If the first fight would have been called a draw...We may have seen a 4th fight

I felt so bad for Barrera when they announced the decision, and he just hangs his head and they put the towel over him and clean him off :(

Barrera got the better of the series no doubt in my mind.

I personally thought fight 3 was the clearest of the series, and I scratch my head when people say fight 2 is.

In fight 2, Marco clearly has a complete comeback. The only question is whether or not you give more than 1 in the first 6 rounds to him. The more early and middle rounds you give to Barrera, the more likely you scored him coming back. Its Morales volume vs. Barrera's power.

In fight three, there is NO argument for Morales winning more than a single round in the first 6. All the unified rules criteria in those rounds favor Barrera: Harder, cleaner connects, more landed punches, better defense, and the ring generalship is near total. They are the most one sided rounds they fought in three fights. Morales has a rally of his own, but it's also clearly an incomplete one: He loses the 9th clearly, and the 10th is arguable.

There is just no real way to score the 3rd fight for Morales, and a draw is giving him every benefit of the doubt. In the 2nd fight, Barrera CAN be given a win with the benefit of the doubt, and a draw isn't a huge stretch.

It evens out in the end then, and makes this bit of history more palatable.

Both guys got away with one in this trilogy, which marks perhaps the only time any of us can recall when two wrongs actually DO make a right. It's all good.
I can agree with this. In a round about way, Erik got the benefit of the doubt in the 1st when he didn't deserve it, and Barrera got the fortunate call in the 2nd. The trilogy justly came down to the rubber match, which Marco won rather decisively.

Everything about the Barrera-Morales series was the shit

Even their press conferences

It was a shame no fight 4 happened. Could have been straight after 3, or anytime really

1 is the clearest for MAB for me, 2 could go either way - edge Morales maybe, 3 is easier to score as a draw for Morales than 1 is

I'll say again that I know plenty of people who scored the 3rd bout for Morales as well. I did too.
