Now that was a bullshit decision, Barrera won that fight!

Nick_Foxx's picture

I was always surprised there wasn't more controversy about this particular decision

Champion97's picture

In a fight this close, in a fight which could go either way, I don't believe there is a fairer outcome than a split decision, I'm glad Erik Morales got the decision, but the majority out there believe Barrera did enough to get the win, that only means so much, but there would have had to have been no complaint had he gotten the verdict. Any disagreement amongst fans regarding the verdict, just makes one glad this turned out to be a great trilogy.

rorschach's picture

This is how you respond to a post I made 3 years prior to yours lol, yeah my comment that Barrera won and it was bullshit he didn't total ruins what might have very well been the fight of the decade. Quit being so prissy, or just refrain from responding to my posts, either way I'll say use whatever language I see fit.

Champion97's picture

First off Rorschach, I just want to apologise for that ridiculous overreaction, I did write it 17 months ago, but still, you're comment was just an expression of a strong and fair opinion, sorry about that, and I have no problem with you using 'bad' language on that level, this is boxing, not tiddlywinks.

I forgot about my comment, so I must have submitted that a while back, this is one of thise times when you look back at when you said something you know you wouldn't say today. people say what they want to, so I apologise for any offence or anything like that, it was a while ago rorschach, and to be honest, I don't even remember what I said, I can edit the comment of you like, and maybe you could edit yours, let's start this again, isn't it fights like this that make ths sport what it is?! And what a difference boxing legends like Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik Morales have made over the years!, right?

THE BEST FIGHT OF ALL TIME

Champion97's picture

Great fight!!
Both warriors deserve so much respect, it is fights like this that make boxing what it is. The only thing I din't like about this fight was the quite blatant bias shown by the HBO team, especially Larry Merchant and Harold Ledermen, anyway, that wasn't anywhere near enough to outweigh the fact that this was a wonderful fight!

I told you so, great fight. I had it 115-112 for Barrera and had the close rounds to him as it looked like he caused the most damage. You gonna score 2 tomorrow

Champion97's picture

Why on earth not?, what did you think of my analysis, was it an accurate summary in your eyes? and can you understand my scorecard?

Yes I can see your scorecard and you made a great analysis. Such an even fight it was and I think that there were 8-9 debatable rounds. You know Lederman said 116-111 Barrera, slighty too far in my opinion. Fight 2 was a lot more tactical from Barrera, was still excellent though. This fight made their careers, an utter brawl this fight was. Both fighters were exceptionally gifted and thats what boxing misses nowadays, fighters who can brawl,with only glimpses like Maidana. The early 2000's were filled with stars, especially in these divisions. Morales, Pacquiao, Barrera and Marquez stand out as the big four for me. They all had at least one fight with each other apart from Marquez-Morales.Also, what Erik Morales shown in his fight with Maidana was courage and determination and fought an amazing fight, losing by MD but showing glimpses of himself back from 2000-05. Many fighters nowadays don't have these mental skills like fighters from the "Golden Era" of boxing from 1995-2008.

Champion97's picture

I agree although I prefer Maidana as a fighter to any of the others you mentioned, you were right about it being a great fight, I don't have a problem with 115-112 for Barrera, it was just the attitude of Lederman that I found unfair.

Yeah, very harsh it was, anyway I'm gonna go off now so speak to you tomorrow and we'll score barrera morales 2 and maybe 3 if we have time, bye. Before I go off, where would you rank it on the list of your best fights of all time

Champion97's picture

Not sure, definitely in the top 10, maybe even top 5, will defiantly be up for scoring the second fight tomorrow, I will probably score around prevening time,

Speak to you tomorrow mate.

You to. Goodnight
