People forget how good a boxer Morales could be, would be a bad idea to turn southpaw vs Hamed though I think.

At the time both fighters were too good for Hamed. Morales probably would have got Naz out of there more quickly.

I reckon Morales is a better boxer than MAB ( well, when he uses his skills that is). He was always happy to go to war but thats coz very few could 'outwar' him so to speak but when he needed to box and mix things up in a fight he was certainly more than capable, (eg. Pacman 1 where Erik controlled the fight fairly comfortably even though he was starting to decline slightly)

The hatred between him and MAB is the main reason he went toe to toe in that trilogy. He had quite an 'in-ring' temper on him lol

I actually thought the judges got it right with regards to MAB v EM 1 (at the time I had MAB up by a point or two but having watched it another million times I thought EM won)

either way morales beats naz and maybe even worse then barrera did, morales had a better skill set then barrera and wouldn't need to change his game or adapt, the only thing that let morales done was the fact he was an emotional reck, which might've been a blessing in this fight, morales would've dropped naz and maybe stopped him.


the morales win over pacquiao is soo underrated, the guy was shot and had been outboxed by zahir raheem before taking pacquiao to school, remember him busted up and cut all over (any other fighter would've stopped) and he put on a clinic against injin chi, what a champion!

Not true.

He fought Raheem after beating Pac.
