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.
I think it plays like this...very close. I think Barrera closes stronger and pushes the fight in the later stages, carrying the rounds.

Pedroza was known for accelerating in the later stages of his fights. It's one of the reasons why I think he's one of the few featherweights capable of beating Sanchez in fantasy match-ups.

If MAB were to win this, it would be due to the fact that he was able to bank enough early rounds to withstand the late charge.

the thing is though, when Pedroza goes at it late, he's not going to be hurting Barrera in any way that is going to end the fight, and Barrera doesn't have stamina issues in scenarios like that, he's perfectly fine going at it late as he showed many times with Morales etc. If a war ensues in the later stages I would bet on Barrera getting the better of it, I still see it how I initially said myself. Battle of jabs early, Pedroza the better technical man getting the better of it albeit in a close nature. Heavy artillery attle later on, Barrera taking it.

True points. That was how Pedroza fought...I just see the Barrera and Pedroza fight looking somewhat similar to the Olivares fight, but with Barrera being much sharper than Olivares was at that time. It was a shame Sanchez and Pedroza never fought...I would lean towards Sanchez (slightly) to take it.

Yep...for me too.
Such a sharp counter puncher in exchanges. He'd beat Barrera, Morales, and Marquez IMO.
