On this day in Fistiana, Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera waged a brilliant war that ignited their fierce rivalry and served notice to all of boxing that an age of fantastic featherweights was dawning. Their first contest at the Mandalay Bay became a 12 round all-time classic for the ages on a chilly Vegas night at the start of the twenty-first century.
