    All out war continues from the 11th, both sloppy, neither man landing flush all that much, but Morales had Barrera almost ready to go late and even though Barrera fought back, it wasn't enough to nick it.

    114-114 Draw

    Thanks for this @CST80 , really good work. I've always thought Barrera won the first but got jipped and Morales won the second and got jipped. I felt that Barrera did edge the trilogy. Really appreciate your insight.

    I ranked Morales II & III as his greatest and second greatest victories. :thumbsup:

    Great fight, as we all know. Love both guys but I will go on record and admit that I prefer Morales and his style, although I am still a massive fan of Barrera and his own approach. I'm of the opinion that Morales was the greatest of the 2000's Mexican trio, and he's the only 1 to make my

    .

    This is generally viewed as a robbery and the credit is often given to Barrera, which is fair enough imo, but it's undersold how well Morales did here, but imo Morales was brilliant, just didn't win.

    Barrera's style is really fun though. Lots of pressure and aggression. His footwork was nice and angled to cut the ring off well, he has nice (underrated) defence and counter abilities as well as a very serviceable jab. Erik Morales is one of the best modern textbook examples of perfect boxer-puncher.
