Barker is a huge underdog and this fight shouldn't be happening at all. Very suprised by it.

Martinez still seems at the top of his game. This would have to be one of the biggest upsets of all time should he win.

Haven't seen too much of Barker tbh, thought he looked impressive against Spada after a long lay off but I didn't see anything in his performance that made me think he'd be a match for Martinez, he needs more fights at world level waters and he's been throwin in with the biggest shark of the lot here.

I think he'll give a good account of himself but Martinez will win by late stoppage or a one sided decision.

Will be as big a shock as Honeyghan-Curry if he pulls it out imo. I expect Martinez to deal with him in much the same manner he dealt with Dzinzurik.

I reckon we've had way too many threads about this fight. Just post on the Barker-Martinez countdown thread lads.

Martinez gets massively overrated on here but he is still a step too far for Barker I think

Barker to move anticlockwise and in turn keep Martinez within range and break his will.


Martinez........as gorgeous as he is........wont have this easy.






Barker via randomness.

Barker will change him moniker to 'Devastated' Darren Barker after this. He's getting crushed inside five rounds.
