I know that, I just want to see how many people thought that Barrera was still in his Prime against Pac in 2003, Mayweather fans think differently.

So, Was Marco Antonio Barrera was still in his PRIME against Pacquiao in 2003?


Yes or No?
Yes he was, it's ridiculous that desperate losers try to discredit that win with that pathetic excuse. Barrera was coming off a three year streak of big wins against the likes of Morales, Hamed, Tapia, Sanchez, Kelley and whoever else I'm missing. Even in his loss three years prior to meeting Pacquiao it was a 50/50 fight against Morales. If he was past it he wouldn't have beaten those guys before meeting Pacquiao.

Even after that fight he went on to beat Morales(who later beat Pacquiao), Juarez x2 and got robbed against Marquez. Though clearly from the Juarez fight onwards he showed signs of decline yet was still great enough to beat Marquez.

All that one has to watch were his fights with Ayala and Morales after the 1st Pac fight. Barrera is no doubt prime even up to that point.

Even after the Pacquiao-Barrera 1, he still looked great in beating Ayala by TKO, Erik Morales, Juarez 2x.

No, his actual prime imho was at jr feather but he wasn't far off it and was still at a very very high level. He also had the worst camp of his life. It could be that Pac would beat him at any weight, but a little south in weight and with a great camp I'm pretty sure MAB could have made a real war out of it.

Best win of Pac's career, I think.

Marco could afford to lose several steps off his prime form and he would still obliterate Ayala.
