Default Barrera knocked out in sparring?

Barrera knocked out?

MANILA, Philippines -- IF REPORTS ARE ACCURATE ENOUGH, Manny Pacquiao should have no problem finishing off Marco Antonio Barrera in Las Vegas two weeks from now.

The latest buzz out of the Mexican’s camp could be ominous: Barrera was knocked out by a sparmate in Guadalajara, Mexico.

That was the report passed around during yesterday’s send-off breakfast for Pacquiao at Gourdo’s in The Fort.

He refused to comment about it, going his usual route and declaring that he will be 100 percent fully charged for his super featherweight rematch against the “Baby-Faced Assassin” on Oct. 7 at the Mandalay Bay.

“Hindi natin alam kung ano ang mangyayari sa fight, pero sigurado akong gagawin ko ang lahat (I can’t say what will happen in the fight except that I’ll give it my best shot),” Pacquiao quipped flashing a smile that matched the shine of his gold Rolex wristwatch and diamond-stud earring.

At one point of the press conference, his imported sparring partners, Mexicans Sugar Ray Beltran and David Rodela, vouched for Pacquiao’s preparedness, citing how the Filipino boxing icon’s punches were like swings from a baseball bat.

“We still have 26 hellish rounds with him,” said one of the sparmates who worked out with Pacquiao after the presscon at the Wild Card gym in Parañaque.

They were to join him and trainer Freddie Roach late last night on a flight to the United States for the homestretch of his training.

“He’s my favorite fighter of all time,” said Roach, who also denied previous weeks’ reports that he sent out spies at Barrera’s camp.

“I don’t have any spy. We don’t need any spy,” added the trainer.

Pacquiao knocked out Barrera in the 11th-round during their first date in November of 2003, a result that practically put the Filipino in the radar of megabuck fights.



Whether it's true or not,we probably will never know but if Valero is sparring there now and it did happen,it was Valero. One thing I know about that guy,he has a huge ego. He loves to fight. Even in sparring.

So when Freddy Roach said "He's my favorite fighter of all time" was he referring to Pacquiao or Barrera. I mean i know it must be pacquiao but thats a weird thing to say about the fighter you're training

btw its obviously bullshit that MAB got KO'ed in sparring and Pacquiao's camp knows this and they are ignoring the rumour, as they should.

I think it's probably true. Valero is a strong boxer. He can kd Barrera with his punch.

it's just another dumb ass filipino writer who knows nothing about the sport and who heard this story for someone at some point in time. any writer who starts with "if the reports are accurate enought" should not be believed.

man, how the hell could he be knocked out? it is very possible to be dropped during sparring but if a person there counted one to ten before helping mab to his feet in just impossible. i reckon that the writer does not know much about boxing as there is a strong possibility that he does not know the difference of a KD from a KO.

take everything being published about pac in filipino newspapers with a grain of salt. remember that pac hinself sued a writer for libel and that the story that pac was backing out from the fight against mab started from their ranks.

I think the whole story is bullshit
You mean Valero kd'ing Barrera is not possible? C'mon don't be a noob.

a filipino writer said it CLAIMED it came from the barrera camp. claimed is the key word here. he didn't even know who it was from.
