Boxing needed Pac-Morales

Mar 22, 2005 9:14 AM

The three judges all had it 115-113, but there was really no need to check the cards. The result wasn’t that important. Everyone wanted more than 12 rounds of Pacquiao-Morales.

Action from start to finish. Flag-waving support from a raucous SRO crowd at MGM Grand.

Just for the record, a close decision at last went in favor of Erik Morales.

Lefty Manny Pacquiao was still firing, but a look at his bloody face may have tilted the scales against him. No matter, we cry out for a rematch, Pac Man-Barrera 2, Barrera-Morales 4, or all of the above. Ariba!
