I can see how this goes to Morales as rounds 8 and 11 were really close. For me it's a tale of two fights with Morales keeping MAB on the back foot until that cut eye and then MAB having much more success down the stretch.
This impresses me more than the frst fight. I don't prefer it but is more impressive. The first fight was a brawl which saw MAB overwhelm Morales. This time the two fighters were much better versions (despite the form of EM going into this fight).
There were some great exchanges and some great boxing at every range. Very nip and tuck throughout and there really wasn't an awful lot to separate them. I do feel MAB nicked it down the stretch and this I probably the best opponent he ever beat in the ring.
Did you think Morales should have had a KD in his favour?
