    Marco wouldn't take any **** from Gomez, that's for sure. Gomez's dirty tactics would prompt swift retaliation in kind.

    The narrative with Gomez is that all his loses came because he was unfocused and partying too much. Its a little convinient that this guy barely trained when he was fighting great boxers like Salvador Sanchez and Azumah Nelson, but worked like a spartan when he was getting ready for the title defenses he had against less high profile opponents.

    That said, Gomez was a great fighter and beating him at 122 would be akin to scaling Everest. But the people who are saying Gomez would fold Barrera in half with ease are mistaken.

    Gomez at 122 was as perfect a fighting machine as their ever was. Defensively sound, always in range to counter, great feet, fast hands, and of course the punching power, Gomez had ko written on both hands with every punch except the jab. Berrera was a heck of a fighter. But Gomez was on a different level, Gomez stops Berrera within 10rds.

    Which version of Barrera are talking about? 96, 97 Barrera or 2000 Barrera?

    If it's the latter then its unwise to overlook Barrera. The man was tremendously skilled.

    Yes he is top 3 of Mexico, clearly ahead of Olivares, but barely ahead of Zarate and Sanchez.
