True, that`s what happens when two of the best fighters ever share a ring together in their primes, they are so good & complete that they don`t even get it all their own way when fighting to their strengths.

Arguably the most passionate & closely matched rivalry in the history of boxing.

If Barrera had never beaten Morales in a 3rd fight, I would've probably had them rated fairly evenly. Morales would've had the distinction of beating Pacquiao once in a(n otherwise losing) series, but Barrera's win over Hamed was a big feather in his cap too.
