For reference- Benitez was completely shot by 26/27 by the way and he even took a lot less damage than Morales in his career.
Barrera was actually considered on the downside in the first Morales fight in 2000. Morales was expected to win the fight easy because Barrera had just been KO'd and beaten up not too long ago.
imho Eric was still prime at 130 although he lost to Marco in a close contest he beat pac after, i think his fights with pacquio in sucession is what made him shot...
