barry should of been included in the underbelly yarn on tv. he was bashed mercilessly by a couple of the 'main actors' (who were later killed) because he beat lester.
i dont believe barry recovered from that beating, and was stopped by lockeridge in his next fight, i believe.
also, for all the shit i hang on barry about mundines nuts, i recon hes a great bloke, and one of our greatest ever fighters.
