MANNY PACQUIAO vs MARCO ANTONIO BARRERA II, A PREDICTION by omrelap Looking at the two great fighters who had both carved their formidable presence in the portals of super featherweight boxing class, one can look up to a very exciting match. Both fighters have the power to put the other to sleep. Both are agile, courageous, strong and willing to “eat” the punch of the other in exchange for his own. Both are literally fearsome in this weight class. Their track records will not deny. Marco Antonio Barrera is a relentless fighter with an accurate punching target. His left punch is equally fast and as strong as his right. He is agile, ambidextrous, intelligent and fast. He has jaws as strong as the legendary stone corn mill. One big blow from him will surely make the Pacman do the cross-eyed look while struggling to regain his balance. His weakness though, as discovered by Pacquiao on their previous encounter is his bread basket which doesn’t seem to jive with the strength of the rest of his body parts. Manny Pacquiao on the other hand is not to be taken lightly as an opponent. He has delivered many a man back to dreamland with his hands be it left or right. His punches bear the power of a fighter from a higher weight division. He is also courageous, focused, “eager to kill” and most of all, he doesn’t have the nose to worry about.
He can trade punches face to face with Barrera from dawn to sunset with his nose still intact. But I don’t know what will happen to Barrera’s. Well seriously, Pacquiao may have a slight advantage over Barrera in this match. Achilles’ heels – Barrera’s weak spot is already unfolded. This will be a cause for him to lose offensive focus. Barrera has yet to discover a good soft target in Pacquiao. Pacquiao is in his prime. This is his best form as a boxer. Barrera is going down the slope with age. Pacquiao’s blows are stronger and more devastating than Barrera’s. Pacquiao can take Barrera’s blows but Barrera can’t withstand the Pacquiao’s punches. Pacquiao’s blows to the stomach of Barrera will surely take away his stamina even in the early rounds of the fight. Based on the above analyses, it is predicted that Manny Pacquiao will win over Marco Antonio Barrera by knockout within the first 6 rounds of the fight.
