How can it be Morales if Barrera beat him twice?


IMO I always consider it suspect if a boxer wins via decision......and MAB failed to KO EM during their trilogy.......

So, it's EM for me......

I just have to say it's Morales. The result of their trilogy is not an accurate basis to say Barrera is a better fighter than Morales. The body of work of both boxers should carry more weight in determining which fighter is superior to the other. While all three fights in the Barrera-Morales series are life and death struggles, the performances of both fighters against common opponents reveal more.

Barrera lost twice in conclusive fashion to Junior Jones, a fighter Morales had no trouble knocking out. Barrera also lost miserably to Manny Pacquiao, while Morales was able to make at least two of the three Pacquiao fights very competitive, even winning the first fight at least in the eyes of most people, You can't just look at the Barrera-Morales trilogy and make a conclusion right then and there that the winner Barrera should stand on a higher plane when history is to judge the worth of these two great fighters.

The trilogy is a very personal and emotional affair for the two Mexicans, more so to Morales. I agree with the experts who say Morales simply loses his mind everytime he goes up against Barrera. He was simply trying too hard, which makes the fight harder for himself, and easier for Barrera to win. Had Morales chose to box and use his ring smarts, like what Barrera started doing since the re-match, Morales could have won on points without trouble. Pride gets the better of Morales everytime Barrera shows his face to el Terrible.

A jabbing, defense-conscious and stylish Morales could have easly outpointed Barrera in all three fights but then again, that's really not his style although Morales is very capable of fighting that kind of fight.

i'll tell you why. All three fights were very close, and most analysts believe that any time those two pugs go to war, it will be a pick em' fight. All three bouts were so close that neither boxer came out to be clearly dominant over the other. Since barrera won the trilogy though, you have a goodpoint. But barrera has been conquered by two men. Junior Jones and Manny Pacquiao. Erik Morales defeated both of those men. Erik morales has also been against more elite competition than barrera. I think Morales is the better boxer, but only by a small margin and it is arguable. but if morales regains a forth title in lightweight division, then there is no argument...morales will have the greater legacy.

Morales does better than Barrera because Erik can brawl and therefore more exciting to watch. Barrera is just a passive fighter who depends on his counter punching ability. :D :D :D
