  1. 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.

  2. fantastic fight. I know its just the highlights but find the full fight online amazing. really is. I thought it could of gone either way. we will not see warriors in boxing like that again.

  3. Terrific fight, it’s always great to see a crowd of mixed supporters. I disagree with the decision. Even though the fight was awfully tough to score and the knock down in favor of Barrera was not a real knock down but an unintentional error from the ref, I think it should have gone Barrera’s way.

    Anyway, it’s fun reliving old fights and not losing time to find the good ones because of ATBF. Any projects of going before 2000? I know this must be quite some work.
