Morpheus doesn't usually tire, Smith just kind of beat him. But as we find out, Smith is a whole different animal than anything else in The Matrix, other than Neo. Look at Morpheus' fight with an agent on top of a semi during the second film. That entire sequence lasts like fifteen minutes of him constantly being in action and he isn't really worn out.
 
Also wasn't Tai Lung's main form of attack using pressure points that didn't work because of Po's size? Morpheus seems to go for more direct force and redirecting a lot of attacks. Anytime Po tries to throw a punch, Morpheus can parry the blow and send him flying.


All of the fights you are talking about happened in the matrix. Even if he knows kung fu outside the matrix, he still has to breath air. Also in real life he is a 50 year old man, in good shape, but still. Pro wins this.

Why wouldn't this be the Morpheus from within the Matrix?

If all competitors are at their strongest (as far as slots allow) this should be Matrix Morpheus.

He tired against Agent Smith in his first fight. Also that Agent I think was inferior to Smith and it was an open space - Morpheus dodged more than he got hits in though - in fact, he got help from Naomi when the Agent knocked him off the back of the truck, it was more of keeping the agent off from The Key rather than actually fighting one on one with him. Even Morpheus has stated the likes of he can't hope to win - though that isn't to detract from his skills but I digress.

 

Whereas Tai Lung, as I mentioned, is an incredible beast - he thrashed the Kung Fu Masters under Shifu with relative ease and doesn't only rely on pressure points, he relies on insane overpowering blows - which bounced off Po.

 

So you have to give Po actual credit, aside his being a Panda, you have to take into consideration the 2 movies and the show, his showings, and his actual training - he's definitely got a chance against Morpheus - Morpheus doesn't have all the advantages - Po has just as many against Morpheus.
