Always been a fan of MAB, one of the most entertaining fighters of recent memory and I was honored to meet him in person a few years back.

Huge fan of both he and Morales... if that's allowed.

Wonderful left hand. Probably my favorite of the three Amigos to watch. Launched the career of Pacquaio and ended the career of Naseem Hamed.

His win over Hameed was very satisfying to watch. He was an ultimate professional. Always let his fists do the talking. His war with Kennedy McKinney was one of the best fights I've ever seen.

Always been a fan of MAB, but I became a BIG fan of his when he put Hamed in his place. I liked Barrera better than Morales or Marquez . Loved when he got that moral victory by going the limit in the rematch with a then hot Pacquaio. The biggest, most satisfying contribution MAB made was vs Hamed....love him for that.

The 1st and 3rd fight with Morales are the greatest matches I've ever seen!
And yeah, he put Hamed in his place pretty bad.

Would've loved to see him fight Marquez in their prime though...

MAB was everything one could want in a fighter. True Pro.... He will always have my respect... Took Hamed apart, and that was a legacy win.
