Weight class had nothing to do with it. Some of Barrera's greatest performances happened at 126lbs. Barrera was a better fighter as a boxer puncher than he ever had been as a pressure fighter. Marco beat nobody of note with the exception of Jones and maybe benavides at 122lbs, it's silly to say he was at his prime during that time.
