Amir Khan Vs Marco Antonio Barrera

Amir Khan Vs Marco Antonio Barrera

It has been confirmed, Amir Khan will fight Marco Antonio Barrera in March 2009. I have to say, i was shocked when i discovered this, Amir Khan is much bigger then Barrera, and is a natural lightweight. Not to mention Marco Antonio Barrera is at the end of his career.

I had hoped Barrera would not make a comeback, he is a great fighter with some of the best skills i have seen. One performance that springs to mind is the way he totally schooled Prince Naseem Hamed. Marco Antonio Barrera will always been remembered as one of the best boxers of modern times.

I would never right Barrera off, he's just too good, even at this late stage of his boxing career, but i think Amir Khan, being so young and fresh will win this fight, which for me will be very sad. I don't want Barrera to go out like that, being beat by Khan, he is much much better then that, and it's only because of the stage of each fighters boxing career that Khan will win, if Khan fought Barrera a few years back he wouldn't last a few rounds.

Amir Khan's team, mainly his promoter Frank Warren are very aware of this, they know Barrera is at the end so there looking for a big pay day and a superb name to have on Khans record. To be honest, i really hope Barrera gives them a shock and comes in great shape and has trained very well for Amir Khans style.

After Amir Khans knockout loss to Prescott, many people were saying that Khan has not even beaten the best that England has to offer, and i think thats right, there are many good fighters in UK that would probably beat Khan, he should fight more of the UK fighters and establish himself.

Whatever happens with Amir Khan Vs Marco Antonio Barrera it should be a decent fight, even if Barrera is at the end of his career. Personally i would love Barrera to win this fight, but i think he is just too old now for the younger, fresher fighters, i hope im wrong. Goodluck Barrera!

This is a cheap move by amir. He doesn't deserve to share the ring with barrera, he is not worthy, no way!.

I think this is a good test for khan. A good match up made from Frank Warren for once.

If Amir wins this fight, he will be up there with some huge paydays, forget the uk fighters. There going where the real money is.

Barrera is a good boxer but he is on the slip, you can only do so much-barrera has had his time at the top now it's amir khans turn-or someone elses. I don't particularly like khan but if im honest i think he will win- but that dont stop me rooting for barrera

Good matchup said...

You dont get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate. That is very valid in terms of this fight. Great move by the khan camp. this fight is worth the risk, barrera is still considered one of the best. If, and thats a big if he beats barrera khan will be in a top spot.

Khan has come along at the right time, or at least everyone thinks so. Personally i hope Barrera shocks everyone and takes Khan out. Im sure Barrera still has a few good fights in him. He doesn't really even need to perform at his best to beat Khan, even Barrera at not even half of his ability should beat Khan. I just hope he's not too old..
