Morales gave away those last two rounds with his stupidity and made what may have been a 117-111 type of a score into a much closer fight on the cards.

One of the dumbest moves I've ever seen a fighter make. The way Pacquiao punched as a 130 pounder, he imo was one or two shots away from turning Morales' lights out in that last round.
he was kicking pacs ass the whole fight, he wanted the last round to be super exciting, and him switching to southpaw made it just that

PBF makes a great fighter look average. A good fighter look poor.
What great fighter has Floyd been in the ring with? Old ass Mosley and Oscar?

I think Morales going southpaw against Pacquiao in their 1st fight was just his attempted slap-in-your-face act on Pacquiao to let Pac know that he could take Pac's power. He did it because he knew that he was ahead in points. It was not a wise move to do but nevertheless, he got everyone excited by doing that.

It would have been hilarious to see Pacquiao going orthodox in their 2nd and 3rd fights as well since Morales could not muster the courage to go southpaw again in both times.

3 epic battles for 2 great boxing warriors of all time!

EXACTLY. Several times through the fight Morales clowned Pac, at one point he raised his hands like Pac does all the time and then beat him into the ropes. He gave Pac every chance in the world to knock him out in that fight, he wanted to show his superiority in every way, over Pac, but mostly, imo, over Barrera.

Manny isn't stupid or that bold.
Also, **** Larry Merchant. That old piece of shit has never liked Morales.

Merchant just randomly picks people to shit on for no reason. People try to understand it, like suggest its only blacks or only ****y guys... but look at him shitting on Barker vs Martinez. Merchant probably never knew who barker was before that fight but just decided to shit on him. The guy was outclassed plain and simple but merchant couldnt give him an ounce of credit even when he did way better than merchant ever could have predicted.

People think he hates mayweather because mayweather is safety first, but he hates morales who has the most heart and the most exciting fights of the last 20 years.

Theres no rhyme or reason, Merchant is just a miserable grouchy old prick.

It's amazing how this fight is seen as an "ass-kicking". Morales was only a couple of points ahead going into the 12th round, a round he lost.

Look at Manny's face, look at Morales face. Look at Morales calmly sipping his water as if he'd been on a light jog. Look at many desperately trying to find and excuse as to why he just got clowned.


Its clear who was in complete control of that fight. Looking at Ledermans card and the judges scorecards, I'd say Ledermans card was a closer representation of reality.

Morales put on a great display, but let's not forget who won the trilogy. I see a lot of Pac haters spreading some bullshit in here.
