LOS ANGELES—Marco Antonio Barrera may have called Paulie Ayala his "primo" (cousin) but tonight, no family relations will be thicker like blood
is to water than a career-boosting win at the Home Depot Center in the city of Carson here.
For Barrera, a convincing win most preferably by knockout, is needed to put him back on the radar screen of big-money fights including the right to
issue a challenge to Filipino ring idol Manny Pacquiao, among others.
Ayala, 34, may be fighting the most important match of his last 37 battles (35-2, 12 KOs) as a loss could most likely be his swan song.
