I think it depends on if pac goes back down below 140 which I can'y see happening any time soon, Don't think JMM will fight at 147, if it happens i think it would have to be at 135 where pacquiao won't be as much of a terminator, i don't think he would deal well with not having power he is now used to.

I voted Holyfield vs Bowe, after watching how Holyfield stood there toe to toe and taking shots from Riddick Bowe, that's how I knew he was going to beat Tyson.

Holyfield- Tyson wasn't a trilogy!! But that being said i have

1) Ali- Frazier.. the magnitude of those two fighters speaks volumes and they really went to war
2) Gatti- Ward... there legends just for that trilogy and HOF'ers to me.. just cause of that fight..t eh way they battled it out is amazing and I dont think we will see a war like that again.. unfortunately

If they fight, it'll be around 140..

Exactly.

Thinking about it, I'd have to rate the Ali/Frazier trilogy over the Marquez/Vasquez trilogy due to the fact that you had two of the greatest fighters of all time, one of the greatest fights of all time (Thrilla in Manilla), the hatred, the shit talking by Ali, and all the hype surrounding it.

Same applies to Gatti vs Ward.

Morales v Barrera

All 3 fights were different from each other.
Both guys were elite highly ranked p4p technical fighters that could box & fight.
All 3 fights went the full distance with little to choose between them.
Both men were the top 2 best (or 3 with Pacquiao in the case of fight 3) in the world for their weight class.
All 3 fights were at different weights (122, 126, 130)
Both men severely disliked each other.
Fight 1 was arguably the best fight of all time, an all out war of heart, grit & brutality.
Fight 2 showed there technical expertise & fighting brain.
Fight 3 showed a perfect blend of the first 2 fights, reminding us yet again just how versatile & evenly matched these 2 great fighters were.

Yep, all true

You shake your little blue head at the draw yet let the gift Pac recieved in fight 2 stand as if it was the correct verdict ?... your opinion on Pac-JMM III shows your true colours... like we never knew already

Would be Marquez vs Vazquez for me if it counts. If not id personally go for Pacquiao vs Morales.
