- Barrera and Marquez put on a good show, but the judges' score's were very questionable. In other words, Barrera was robbed. Marquez hurt Barrera with a hard right hand in round seven, but Marquez was dropped shortly after from a picture-perfect right-hand-for-a-right-hand and Barrera hit him again while Marquez was on his hands because the referee failed to jump in immediately. The knockdown was not called and Barrera was penalized a point for hitting marquez while he was down. Marquez was not as aggressive as he was in the early going from that point on and Barrera continuously beat marquez to the punch, and was out-landing him. Emmanuel Steward commented on the judges' scoring saying it was very confusing how Barrera has given that city so many great fights, and the judges' turned around and robbed him like that.

- Barrera and Marquez put on a competitive battle that was not accurately represented by the scorecards. The tactical battle was back and forth throughout the entire contest. Barrera started out fast, while Marquez started controlling the action over rounds 3 through 5.  Marquez hurt Barrera with a hard right hand in round 7, but Marquez was dropped shortly afterwards due to a picture-perfect counter right hand.  Jay Nady, who hesitated, did not immediately step in to rule on what was seemingly a knockdown.  During Nady's hesitation, Barrera struck Marquez on the head while Marquez was on all fours. As a result, the knockdown was not counted, and Barrera was penalized 1 point. This likely led to a 10-8 round in the 7th, in favor of Marquez.  As a fight came to a close, the same competitive back and forth action continued which made fans believe that the fight itself would be extremely close on the official scorecards.  Much to most viewers' dismay, the scorecards were incredibly wide for Marquez, and the missed call by Jay Nady did not make a difference in the fight's decision.
