Default Barrera will win a hard fight

I was watching the first fight just now and eventhough Pacquiao hit him alot and beat him to the punch i didnt see anything to tell me that a well trained, undistracted, highly motivated Barrera cant beat Pacman. Whether its the pacman of today or yesteryear. Barrera today is pretty slick himself and i think will outbox Pacman ala Prince Hamed. Pacman, according to the countdown and other sources, has been his own worse enemy this training camp so if he comes in less trained than he was in the last fight then thats his fault and really gives Barrera the road to victoy.

in my opinion Barrera wins a unanimous decision and this fight, maybe even ends it in a KO in the late rounds.

Pacman has added alot of weapons to his arsenal while maintaining blistering speed.

Barrera's reflexes are starting to diminish and though he is a tactical genious, in a twelve round battle against a boxer of the skill of pacquiao you need your body to respond very well to your mind and I don't think he will be able to do that.

The Countdown to Pacquio/Barrera was one of the worst ones ever because they spent all their time trying to get people to believe that Pac is lazy and not taking this fight seriously while Barrera is a changed man. I'm sorry but it's just a sad attempt by HBO to try to convince people that it will be close when it won't. Pac is going to KO him again. Barrera was great but you can't stay on top forever and the slippage started years ago.

Unlikely he will have his moments in the fight maybe winning some early rounds,but might fad away by the 5th or 6th like in the marquez fight and pac will overtake him in the 7th or 8th.

I'm a big-time Barrera fan, and sadly, I agree.

The whole time HBO was going on about how lazy Pac was and how motivated MAB was....Pac looked young, energetic, and hungry whereas Barrera looked OLD!!

In all honesty, it seemed more like a countdown to Barrera's retirement.

I will NEVER count MAB out of any fight, but I fear the worst come Saturday.

Regardles...

GO MAB!!

Barrera will have a very 'HARD NIGHT'----this is a Promoters matchup it should'nt have been made----Marco's arse is on the line and I can only see him resorting to any means fair and mainly foul to try to see this nightmare thru---go well Marco...the rumours that are spread to pushup the PPV numbers

Thats exactly what they did. More PPV sales that way....
