    Best fight ever, I had it 7-5 for Morales but you really need to watch with the sound down because the commentators are very biased in the underdogs (Barrera) favour & can sway you in close rounds.
    A draw is also fair, both guys were phenomenal & probably left the best of themselves in that ring after that.
