Barrera wants Pacquiao again



Image



After being handed two lopsided losses, Marco Antonio Barrera still wants a piece of Manny Pacquiao.

The Mexican media reported recently that Barrera, who was stopped by Pacquiao in Nov. 2003 and
outpointed late last year, remains hopeful of being granted a third fight with the Filipino southpaw.

Barrera has been sounding off that he still wants to make a comeback although his future will all depend
on his promotional company Golden Boy Promotions (GBP).

Barrera said he doesn’t want to fight a farewell bout against someone who’s just going to lie down and
die but somebody who can bring the best out of him.

And the boxer he prefers to be his opponent is the Filipino boxing icon.

While a rematch with Juan Manuel Marquez looks enticing, Barrera insists fight fans would rather see
him face off with Pacquiao rather than see two fighters fresh from losses duke it out.

Barrera had announced his retirement from the ring moments after losing to Pacquiao last October in
Las Vegas.

The past few weeks, there are reports circulating that GBP is planning to give him one more marquee
fight before he finally calls it quits.

SEE!? that is what happens when you don't leave your heart out in the ring for your last fight. Of course you will feel something missing with you, it was supposed to be your last fight and your last chance to prove something to yourself and the people and you didn't give it your best, whats important if its going to be your last fight is to leave it all out in the ring so you won't feel any regret later because you knew that you brought out your best one last time, and now you want another shot... you had your chance already and you blew it. It wont make sense to have another fight with a man who beat you twice convincingly already, Trilogies are for close fights only.

completely uneccessary fight for Pac. If he wins (which will be the likely outcome) its just a pay day and no signficance. If he loses, it sets back pac and Barrera retires into the sunset. Bad move... should not take that fight.

Apparently, money talks loud enough that the PPV buyers don't even need to pull it out
of their collective wallet for folks to hear. It all boils down to the Benjamins, as always...

WHY PACMAN? He lost to Marquez via a close decision, why not Marquez?

I would like to see Barrera vs Marquez II. That would be a good fight.

MAB has a good PPV record and there was an article saying that Marquez is one of the biggest PPV atraction among Mexican fighters, then, let's see. But it is also logical for MAB to fight JMM since he lost his belt against JMM and both are under GBP, it will easier to make a deal.

WRONG!! It was Barrera's best but his best wasn't good enough to upset Pacquiao.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A WASHED UP PREVIOUS BOXING STAR REALIZE THAT HE DOESNT HAVE ENOUGH NEST EGG IN THE BANK..ALL HE HAS TO DO IS LOOK FOR THE BIGGEST MONEY AND STAY VERTICAL THE WHOLE FIGHT, MAKE IT APPEAR THAT IT IS A DECENT FIGHT AND VOILA, MILLIONS AGAIN IN THE BANK..JUST RETIRE ALREADY BARRERA!!!....

yeah i agree. marco should look to fight jmm and not manny. its too obvious that he just wants the big pay day. He and jmm are both under golden boy so this should be an easy set up. but the thinking is, if u fight manny, u hit the jackpot.
