Default Barrera And Morales - Who Was The Greater Fighter?

This is actually in relation to the article on ESB, for starters I think the article was extremely biased, and chose the wrong fighter out of the two, it didnt even mention Barrera totally changing his style from brawler to boxer/puncher, his superior ring intelligence etc etc, ok rant over, opinions anyone, who will go down as the better fighter/who do you think is the better fighter?

Personally i loved them both but when it came o there fights against each other i wanted Morales to win.

Both involved in great fights though, loved seeing Barrera school Hamed and show him "who's the Daddy"

Always liked watching El Terrible in any of his fights, gutted in the 3rd Pac fight though.

I'd say they are both about evens and both should enter hall of fame at the same time.

I agree with this statement. Their resumes are equally impressive and they're both going to the HOF, so all you have left to look at is their trilogy.

MAB was the more intelligent of two, making him the greater of the two.

Exactly, plus his transformation of boxing styles, which could be classed as one and the same!
