Naz was taught a lesson that night against Barrera after 6-7 rounds he should have switched his gameplan and just started to Box. Naz could box when he needed to but he just kept going in head first with his hands down and kept getting caught.

It wasn't a schooling he never went down (as far as i can remember) and apart from a swollen left eye he wasn't exactly battered and bruised after the 12 rounds.Its just a shame he didn't take anything away from the loss and build on it, he was great for boxing and amazing to watch. I remember seeing him against Robinson where i think he was the underdog, followed him ever since.

I just cant believe the pep talk Chris Eubank gave him before the fight didn't spur him on to a KO win!!!

I've watched the fight several times over the years, won a tidy sum on the fight as it happens. I'll watch it again & post a scorecard......could do with a giggle.

I will just add on a serious note though, I was never a fan because i didn't like his ****iness, but he was always fun to watch & I did expect it to be a tough close fight, & I was suprised how easily MAB handled him.

The problem with all this is people's definition of schooling. I don't agree that it has to be as a comprehensive victory and shut out as Calzaghe v Lacy. Schooling implies teaching a lesson. Which is what Barrera did. Naz for all his talent, had no answer for Barrera's perfectly executed game plan.

It should also be looked at, not just on the scorecard, but in the context of his career. The fact that this was really the fight that ended it and took his confidence away.

Agreed, but he cwouldn't have knocked Morales out IMO. Not at that stage anyway, Naz just wasn't all that dynamic by then.

nazs build up to that fight was the worst in the history of world championship boxing, the saying goes fights are won in the gym.

I'd argue that Naz's career was on the downward spiral long before Barrera beat him. He wasnt dedicated in his training at all, and was becoming increasingly religious. Boxing had become a distant second long before Marco IMO

Yet he was still winning fights up until this point. losing to Barrera was the biggest of all wake up calls and a massive blow to his ego. Barrera schooled him in that he was not as invincible as he thought.

I'm with Vano. Barrera gave him a beating but not a schooling.

I wouldnt think that's right either. How can it be a 10 point MUST scoring system if you can then score it 9-9?

P.S Barrera DID take him to school!

10 point must unless there's a deduction due to a foul i.e NOT a knockdown.

Barrera won the round 10-9, and is then deducated a point. So it's 9-9. If it was scored a 10-10, it would mean Naz was GIVEN a point, rather than Barrera LOSING one.
