I just wish we had seen Marco up against the man in your avatar at Featherweight during the early 2000's. What a match-up.

Has nothing to do with his nationality. If he is indeed one of your favorites, you have good taste my friend.
Im a big fan of him and Morales, although I probably prefer Barrera a touch more. His win over Nas made a big impression as I worshipped Nas as a kid. Morales' defeat of Pacquiao was incredible as well though. We need more fighters like these, boxing isnt the same without them.

Terry Norris displayed better punch resistance than Barrera in suffering devastating knockout defeats at the hands of Julian Jackson and Simon Brown.
Nothing wrong with getting kayoed by Jackson, he would also KO Barrera in a pound for pound sense. Terry avenged the Brown loss and won it rather easily. Barrera lost both his rematches to Junior "Feather Fisted" Jones and Pacquiao in a fight that saw him running.


Quote:
Barrera, although many people don't like to acknowledge it, was only ever stopped on his feet. His corner men intervened in the first Jones fight, getting Marco disqualified, and Pacquiao, who recently sparked out Junior Welterweight Ricky Hatton with one shot, couldn't keep the Mexican down. We all know the controversy surrounding the Khan circus.
Stop being a crybaby. Stop trying to big up Pac win over Hatton, a win you always discredit but now is bigging up for the sake of agenda.

Quote:
Who worked more effectively to the midsection, and who had the stronger offensive arsenal? It sure as hell wasn't Terry Norris, who feasted on shopworn fighters, and wouldn't just get beaten by fighters, he got knocked the **** out. I don't like rubbishing athletes full stop, they all deserve respect, but people like you make it pretty damn hard not to retaliate.
Terry is a much better offensive fighter than Barrera. Terry did it all in style, if you want to see his work to the midsection watch his fight with Vince Pettaway.

And Terry fought who was available to him, his era of the junior middleweight division was not deep. I bet you give Finito Lopez a pass on his opposition but wont give Terry the same pass when both fighters were in the same predicament.

I feel a younger Barrera would have edged out Marquez over 12.

Although we could spend all day listing the achievements of Manny Pacquiao, and not so much Simon Brown, why are the rematches relevant to the point. I said quite clearly that Barrera demonstrated better punch resistance than Terry Norris throughout a 20 year career. This was in response to your, "Terry Norris does everything better than Marco. Fact" comment. Concede defeat. Some even consider Terry a glass jawed joke, like Rico Spadafora.

Don't talk shit. I've never discredited that victory not once. You have your opportunity to go and try and prove me wrong by looking through old posts, but I guarantee you, and the Pactards will back me up, I've always maintained that the Hatton victory was awesome. Pacquiao demonstrated one punch knockout power against a much bigger 140lbs fighter, whereas he couldn't knock Barrera out cold. That was to emphasize the disparity in both Barrera's and Norris' ability to take a shot.

Quote:

Give me a break. Barrera demonstrated a ferocious body attack on a consistent basis, and against some of the best Featherweights of his era. He brutalized Morales midsection in their first fight with left hooks to the body, which would often be in the form of a 3-4 punch combination. Paulie Ayala had never been stopped until he felt the power of Marco's body attack, and the fight was mercifully waved off late into the bout. There are countless examples of Barrera's superior body work.

You assume we all have an agenda like yourself, and that is your huge flaw. Ricardo Lopez shouldn't even be considered as high as Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, or Juan Manuel Marquez as far as I'm concerned. He retired undefeated, and he dominated the Minimum-weight class, but why didn't he move up and fight Michael Carbajal and Humberto Gonzalez. As it turns out, Ricardo dominated Boxing's wasteland, and it cost him as far as I'm concerned.

Let's get this right, Blanco. You're the one who came onto a Barrera thread and started poking fun at him by posting pictures of him suffering a knockdown to the best fighter in the world today. Why do it for? Especially when your favorite fighter is horribly flawed himself, and didn't achieve half of what Barrera did in three separate weight divisions over a career that spanned two decades. The joke is on you, my friend.

Well, versatile was taken so I'll say 'adaptable.'

Brilliant little fighter.

Not sure if it's been said already.
