I think Magna Carta 2 is the game someone was mentioning that there was a boss fight that you're supposed to lose but it's actually fairly easy to win or something?

You may be thinking about Suikoden 3 (or Suki 1, but S3 has them all beat by a country mile due to the sheer number of them).

That said, Gensou Suikoden 2 has a shitload of unwinnable strategy battles (even the ones that you're supposed to win because the mechanics are jank-and-a-half).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Maybe, early Suikodens are a blur by now in my mind...

Forgive my shitty recollection as well... I haven't played Suikoden 1 since it was new-ish, like 20-some years ago.
But I remember the seemingly unwinnable duel between some guy on your side with a bandanna, and some important bad guy. I thought bandanna dude was supposed to die the first time I played. Then I found out on a very young interwebs (remember d*b*u*h*r*.com, porn fans?) that it was actually winnable. BARELY beat him the second time I played.

I don't think you need to spoiler who you have to fight since the game literally starts out by telling you that he's a high ranking general within the Empire you're inevitably going to topple. Now subjects like whether he joins, dies, ends up as a rival who becomes King while you're fighting the monsters would qualify, or even discussing the various outcomes of whichever fight you have with him, be it one or multiple, would more likely constitute as spoilers.

Meanwhile, Suki 2's only unwinnable boss fights are with Neclord because humans are apparently a miserable pile of secrets, and you need like the entire cast of a Castlevania game to bring him down for good.

As for Suki 3, Yuber and Serah. 'Nuff said.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
