Comment(s):

- Larry Merchant commented that Morales was an "8:" or "9:5" underdog.
- Generally regarded as an "action-packed classic".
- Pacquiao sustained a cut over his right eye from a headbutt in the fifth round.
- Morales staggered a few times in the twelfth when he decides to switch southpaw, not listening to his corners' instructions "Don't do anything stupid".
