Marco Antonio Barrera has been forced to withdraw from his proposed bout with Ivan Alvarez.The "Baby Faced Assasin" suffered a severe hand sprain while training for the March 19 bout.
 

After consulting Dr. Horacio Ramirez Mercado, the Chief Physician of the Mexico City Boxing Commission, 'Team Barrera' were told that swelling on the hand would not go down sufficiently in time for the fight and so the Mexican was forced to reluctantly withdraw.Barrera said of the decision: "This is very disappointing for me and for all my fans. "I was having a great training camp, and I was ready to show the world that no one is going to stand in my way as I return to the top of the featherweight division."

True. But I read somewhere the Foreman has made hundreds of Millions in endorsements alone. So the guy is loaded.
