Marco Antonio Barrera said Manny Pacquiao reminds him of his younger self.

But after I saw this (although it's just one of those) .. I can say ... naaah, he's NOT!!!

Here's the link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Dx5F1vcyIiQ

I'm impressed with Barrera by his being calculating at this stage of his career .. but saying Pacquiao reminds him of his younger self .. naah...

He didn't throw wicked and explosive and RELENTLESS punches in this video ...

Naah, I believe if Barrera and Pacquiao fought at their same age ... there's a possibility that Barrera will school Manny but still the possibility of getting KOed by Pacman is not impossible.

But definitely Barrera is NEVER like Pacquiao when he was younger.

What's your take?

MAB is just dreaming. Pardon his illusions, those are just the aftermath of receiving brutal blows from Manny!

Nice video clip. There is nothing new in Barrera's style, nothing has changed. Only his remarks when interviewed after MAB-MP fight has changed. :lol: :lol:

I think Barrera was referring to their similarities in attitudes rather than fighting styles. Manny's hunger and burning desire for recognition and the championship belt was what Barrera was referring to.
