Marco Antonio Barrera is now aiming at a revenge re-match against Manny Pacquiao, but when it comes off, it’ll be a real dig deep challenge
unlike his easy to predict destruction of a game but totally outgunned Paulie Ayala.
This win proved a few scant details. That Marco can still punch and exude intimidation IF his mind is on the job…but little else. Even though Paulie
was a tad heavier than Marco at the weigh in, he’ll never be a featherweight, just as Marco is entirely unsuited to try for the higher super
featherweight division. And weight is what counts here.
In their first fight, a long time ago, Marco savaged Erik Morales, because Erik against his better judgment, had starved himself down to the super
bantamweight limit for one last time.
LOS ANGELES -- Former featherweight king Marco Antonio Barrera overwhelmed, outfought and knocked out Paulie Ayala in the 10th round and
immediately issued a rematch challenge to the man who took his crown away Manny Pacquiao and soon.
Barrera, who brought back throngs of wildly-cheering Mexican fight fans at the Home Depot Center in the City of Carson here, showed no signs of wear
and tear from the November loss he suffered at the hands of the Filipino as his left jab connected all night.
"I am a hard-headed Mexican and I need a second fight in order to learn," said Barrera, when asked if he considered issuing a rematch to Pacquiao, who
is now in Thailand, vacationing with his family.
