Probably why Morrales lasted less than 3 rounds.

I dont really get peoples fascination with the way Morrales went out, it was a short, embarrasing night for him in which he essentialy was forced to quit, something he NEVER DOES and which Im sure he hated.

One more time: The object of a fight is to win. Barrera gave himself more of an opportunity to win than Morrales, who wasnt going anywhere with that strategy.[/quote]

MAB knows he's behind on points. Did he ever try to win the fight in the last 3 rds???? I don't think so.. He's just there to survive & earn a Paycheck.
No, I suppose getting KO is the better option!

You just wanted him to get KOŽd. Its hard for me to take you seriously here bc I know your posts relate directly back to arguing for an enhanced legacy for your boy.

It also shows a lack of respect to say Barrera showed up just for the pay-check!

I respect MAB as a fighter and he gave us lots of great fights. With that said, I'm not going to remember him for last Saturday's fight. It might even diminish him just a little bit.

Maybe Morales gun slinging with Pac in his last fight wasn't the best game plan. But he showed lot of cajones. Morales never pulled any dirty bitch tactics like MAB did in the 11th after he got rocked and was on his out of there - very dishonorable. I understand that MAB wanted to outbox PAC and not KTFO, but being in the last few rounds of your career and knowing you're far behind, I expected more from him.

And that's what it comes down for me and why I prefer Morales. Even in defeat, Morales stil paid his respect to PAC in a sort of passing of the torch. Sure he got KTFO after three, but at the very least, he admitted PAC was the better fighter.

MAB would never dare such a thing - for any fighter. I remember the way he disrepected Kennedy McKinney after that magnificent fight and how he resorted to excuses the first time he was dismantled by PAC. I don't think he even mentioned PAC in his post fight interviews and went on and on about how he was able to go the full 12. The man is classless and never gives anyone their dues win or lose. I was not suprised at all when he shouted "MEXICO!" at the end of the fight and only got a lukewarm response.

I think barerra would have likeed to be as loved as Morales. It's the one thing that Morales holds over him. They're close to evenly matched in everything except for fans.

I actually thought MAB was getting the better of the exchanges in the beginning of the fight, unlike Morales who was just blown away (PAC was on another level as well, people were going crazy about how PAC looked to be at the peak of his prime after that fight). MAB had it in him, it just wasn't his intentions to go out like Morales. Not by a longshot.
