Default Marco Antonio Barrera "I am picking Pacquiao"

Someone is still a little bitter at losing to marquez right? He usually always goes with the Mexicans except for Marquez.

MAB was beaten more severely and more conclusively by Manny Pacquiao. Perhaps he's just giving his honest assessment of the fight. Possibly?

He claimed Pacquiao was on "another level" before the 3rd fight. He may be making an honest assessment, but I wouldn't be surprised if he were bitter at the closeness of his fight with JMM than the decisive battles with Pacquiao.

The majority of fight fans also believed Pacquiao was on "another level" before the 3rd fight. Did they all have an agenda too? Look, professional fighters are just as likely to get predictions wrong as any fight fan or so-called expert.

BaBum is still drunk from the Marquez beating.

Doubt it has anything to do with being bitter, he lost to both guys so why would he pick against Marquez intentionally? It's just his honest prediction in my view.

"BaBum"? Is that what Boxing fans are calling Marco these days? I certainly have been out of the game for a long time. But on a serious note, BaBum's fight with Marquez was a relatively close affair. No beating took place.

That guy is a troll. Babum beat Marquez in my score and I believe MANY agree with me there.

I don't want to divert the discussion too much, but I always felt Marquez just did enough to get the verdict against Barrera. It was a close fight. JMM at that time was at a very good place in his career whereas I feel maybe Barrera was on the slide. He looked slower than usual, and looked very tired down the stretch despite the pace not being all that high. A very good technical fight.

He pulls for the Mexican fighter but speaks his mind. I don't think he has any bitterness towards either fighter.

Yeah, he fought them both, and considering how the fights went, it's not exactly surprising that he just might consider Pacquiao the better fighter.

He's being honest.

Right, I just find it odd to pick him again after watching the 3rd. But again, he could just be making an honest assessment. Anything could happen in this fight. The way he broke it down and took JMM's age into account makes me think he's being honest. Just saying that if there is bitterness, I'd guess it would go towards JMM sooner than Pac.

He lost to both PAC and Marquez so I guess he is as objective ac he could be
in contradiction to you.
