barerra was landing the clearer punches first time, was doing ALL THE WORK morales fought great in surviving some of the attacks but he never deserved the nod ever. if it hadn't of been such a great fight, this bout would of been in the same class as holyfieldm lewis 1 and tito dlh

he deserved it second time though. he boxed great but i still fought it was close. morales was landing and outworking bareerA BUT MAB WAS LANDING SOME GREAT PUNCHES

Yes senja13,
the 3rd fight would have been a majority draw had 1 judge done what the other 2 did & scored that rd for morales instead of even.

It was rd 11, the best rd of the fight as I & 1 other judge had morales 2 pts behind needing the last 2 to get a draw.

I gave morales the last 2 rds earning him a draw but as I said before, erik looked exhausted & was always playing catch up to marco as mab had won rd 1 & never surrendered the lead.

I dont doubt that erik won six rds, in fact im certain of this but watching the fight as a whole instead of rd by rd, if any man should have got it maybe the right man did but IMO the title of better fighter of the 2 has to go to morales.

As I said, Ive seen the trilogy many times & em looks the better fighter.

I`d also give morales the higher marks as far as better career aswell, just did that bit more & did it easier on the eye aswell.

Ps. I actually dont mind mab, I like watching him & he DID give em his hardest fight in his prime but IMHO morales won that fight aswell, Im talking about the 1st fight of course, possible fight of the century, tho I certainly wont be around when the votes are done.
