IMO, placing eusebio pedroza in head to head matchups is kinda difficult. I mean he is capable of beating argeullo, nelson and sanchez, we just never saw those fights happen. I have heard from other people on this site, that it was sanchez who actually avoided pedroza and eusebio called him out.

The best way to beat Barrera is by hurting him or knockout. Pedroza would not be able to Kayo Barrera, he is more of a technical boxer. Against those types of fighters Barrera comes foreward & throws without abandon. He's not afraid to take one to give one. His heavier blows would take thier toll on Pedroza. Pedroza's great stamina would make this a close fight all the way, But Barrera should take a close decision.

Barerra, by close decision. I think although Pedroza was a technically very sound boxer indeed, he'd lack the raw power needed to stop MAB inside the distance.

This would likely be a closely contested fight through much of the duration, however I think Barrera pips him down the stretch of the championship rounds due to his immense workrate and stamina.

That's not simply correct the way they put it.Sanchez was planning to fight Alexis Arguello at 135 next.So,he was ducking Pedroza to fight Arguello?

Pedroza beats Barrera, and theres NO DOUBT in my mind about it.

Barrera is one of the more overrated "greats" of all time. While Pedroza is one of the most underrated greats of all time.

Brooklyn was a fantastic poster. He's missed around here, that's for sure.

To answer the question, I've got Pedroza winning on points. Can trouble MAB on the outside with his height and jab and has the infighting prowess (and dirty tactics) needed to hang in there in the trenches with Barerra. Pedroza gets the UD.

R.I.P. Brooklyn

On the fight, I could see the 'unconventional' tactics of Pedroza getting to Barrera as the fight progresses, I could also see the fight becoming a pure boxing match, where it's difficult to say who would win, at their best both men have great jabs, one is a heavy and consistent weapon, the other is a spear headed point scorer. I'm thinking that Pedrozas jab sets the pace and the tone for his elbows and roughing up, which demoralises Barrera, but the thing is that to truly demoralise Barrera and win the fight you usually need to be hurting him with your power, and I don't think that is coming ti fruition here, Barrera comes on in the second half of the fight and unloads with his heavy barrages of hooks, uppercuts and straight rights, which makes it ever so close on the cards. I lean towards Barrera.

Who would every one say is Pedroza's best opponent? Lockridge? McGuigan? Generally Barrera has fought at a higher level.

Both have brilliant left hooks to the body, quick hands and solid fundamentals. I'm going to cop out and go with the man who looks bigger and stronger at the weight in Pedroza. MAB also didn't look like he fancied going blood and guts above 122

In 2009, from a sudden heart attack. There's a tribute thread in the Lounge, for those who are interested in expressing their condolences.

Olivares was another notable name,and he was well past it and Pedroza looked like complete and utter shite against him.And I didn't have him winning either Lockridge fight,either(first was an outright robbery as far as I'm concerned).



Pedroza was never great and I don't care how many defenses he made.




EDIT: I've been ThinBlack'd

What? Okay, what featherweights would you put above him? Of course he was great, that's just absurd.
