Dude went to war with McKinney, Sanchez, Morales

-was KTFO by Jones, and beaten up by Jones and had a rough time with Maurin.

Then Pac beat him when Barrera had to stop training and move camp.


No, he wasn't prime. Prime was way prior to Pac.

Anyone who voted no is a retard...that Barrera is pretty much the dictionary definition of prime.

No, he wasn't prime. Prime was when he beat Hamed.
It's not as if all of that hadn't happened before Hamed, as well.

You measure a fighter's prime by how impressive they are in the ring, and MAB was on the best run of his career and looking as good as he ever did immediately before the Pacquiao thrashing. The camp issue is valid, but it has no affect on whether or not he was primed. Every fighter faces outside distractions from time to time, training camps don't always go as planned, but Barrera was right smack in the middle of his prime for the first Pacquiao fight.

So going by your logic Barrera must of been prime before he fought Jones!!! lmao making him 22 lmao NO fighter is Prime at 22
And the other fighters you talk about he fought in 96??? You just a plain Pac Hater or WHAT
Lets look at Mosley Oscar and Cotto who had all been in 2 or 3 dingdongs fights before Fraud beat them by decision ONLY Your logic is retarded

Obviously a win over Cotto at welter is better.

Honestly I don't think Turbo is a flomo per se.

I mean he personally still have Pac above Floyd in his own ATG ranking. (that's what I remember)

It's just that he plain hate Pacquiao, perhaps due to an unnecessary beating he inflicted against Oscar. Can't blame him.

I don't hate Pac at all, a top 35 ATG easily.

Just because Barrera is a lighter weight fighter who got beat up before Pac and was distracted coming in to the fight, and Pac beat him doesn't mean I drop Pac standings-wise.

I rank his W over Marquez in the rematch much higher.

So Barrera beating Keeley, Tapia, Morrales,Sanchez and Hamed at FW before losing to Pacquiao does not make Barrera Prime

Stop Lying Flomo
