If ever the opposite was more true.
Back to the original post, people seem to think because guys like Barrera and Morales loved to slug it out that somehow they can bring that attitude to every fight and make it a war regardless of the opponent but it doesn't work that way, in the 2nd fight Barrera tried his best to use his boxing skills and I thought he did ok but in the end a younger more explosive Pacquiao who had a stylistic advantage (as he proved in the first fight) was just too much for Barrera. There was nothing look down on in Barrera's performance.
