Default Just rewatched Pacman vs Barrera 1

And Barrera in the first 2 rounds looked good once he got caught with the left hand in the 3rd he mentally quit Barrera once he tastes the power it will bring back the bad memories also i disagree with the complaints Barrera had about his camp fire etc he looked good in the first 2 rounds and was keepin pac of with the jab in round 2, Barrera is 4 years older and the JMM fight showed he is declining its a shame cus Barrera was always one of my faves but Pac is now in his prime he will beat Barrera alot quicker this time,

i really thought pac would abandon his gameplan after being "dropped" in the first round. good thing he didn't. i expect a much better MAb in this fight though. the only good thing that came out of the beating he got from pac then is that he knows now what to expect and he may have ideas on what to do agianst pac this time around

And people could not see that. All they chose to see was the camp fire, the metal plate, etc.

He was being aggressive, throwing his jabs, combinations, until he was smothered by a confident Pac whose power and speed proved too much for him. That 3rd round KD caught him off-guard, and I think he was in shock from that point up to the time the fight was stopped.

I have no doubt the rematch would be quicker than the first one.

Barrera is going to get very badly beaten unless he bows out early. This is going to be the kind of fight that makes his hard-core fans shed tears for him, I don't think he should have taken this fight.

in short, the benefit of the doubt, though there are only a few of it who took those excuses by heart..

Exactly, he is polished, he turned from a slugger to a boxer.
He lost his best assets against MAB ... a raw power is gone.
MAB will show PAC his place in history along with Hammed.

The last time I read, Pacman's Mexican sparmates are saying that Pac is a lot stronger and better now. They don't know what to watch out, the left hand or the right hand. Both are powerful now. But if you do believe that MAB will win this fight, you might as well bet your house because you can earn a lot more than what you bet with the odds in favor of Pacman.

MAB was no doubt at his prime when he fought Pac. He was rated #2 P4P by most going into that fight.

After Pac, he went on to KO Ayala and beat Morales.

Nobody gave Pac a chance agaisnt MAB that night, even I. IMO MAB dealt with far superior fighters than Pac. I said to myself I would be happy if Pac could just make it the distance. I was like yelling when the idiot Lawrence call ruled it a KD for MAB in the 1st round and ruled it a non KD in the 6th.

Barrera has shown his abbility and willness to adapat his style to give himself the best chance to win. I have no dobut that he will do the same this time around against Pacquaio, and it will not be a repeete of their first encounter.

I like MAB he is a sick SOB with huge ***** but if he goes into this fight anything less then 110% Then it will just be a walk out fight and we will watch MAB retire in the ring.

MAB will last the distance. MAB isnt as good as he was during this time period, while Pac has improved. Barreras only hope is that Pac has an absolutely terrible training camp bc of all the distractions.
