Amir Khan Vs Marco Antonio Barrera

Amir Khan Vs Marco Antonio Barrera Who Wins?

The fight is here, is Amir Khan ready for this huge step up in class after being demolished in one round by Prescott? How much does Marco Antonio Barrera have left? Is it enough? These are the questions that make this match up so exciting. Even the bookmakers can't decide which one should be the favorite to win. This is a great match up and i must say, im undecided myself. Although i do want Barrera to win.

Both these fighters have suffered pretty bad losses in the past, but i think, well, i know, that Barrera's losses were to the much higher class of fighters. Khan got totally exposed in his loss as having terrible defense and punch resistance, which leaves the question, what's going to happen when Khan gets caught with some of Barrera's punches. Because at some point he will.

You can hardly count the knockout win Amir Khan claimed over Fagan as a warm up fight for the great legend Marco Antonio Barrera. Fagan was a part time boxer, full time school teacher, so this is hardly the right warm up fight after a devasting knockout loss, and to now be facing Barrera. But with Barrera now 35 years old, is he too old for the work rate and speed of the younger, fresher fighter? This is the million dollar question. We will find out on saturday.

Personally i really hope he has still got this one last fight inside him, and does the same to Amir Khan that he done to Prince Naz all those years ago. If he fights the same fight, super guard and defense, boxing clever, attacking when the time is right, Amir Khan stands no chance.

But that fight was many years ago, when Barrera was much younger. But does Barrera really need the same ability, youth and skill he had when he beat Naz? I don't think he does, i mean, Prince Naz was way better then Amir Khan, so i beleive Barrera performing at half his ability should beat Khan. But being 35 years old does change things. In boxing terms Barerra is an old man, and Khan is young and in his prime. Can Barrera win? I hope so, and i think he can, but we will have to wait and see.

Marco Antonio Barrera has nothing to prove, he is already one of the best Mexican fighters ever, if he loses people will just say, he was old, way past his prime and probably should of retired. On the other hand, if Amir Khan loses this fight, and loses badly, he is going to have a very long walk back to any sort of world title shot, or fighting any world class fighters. Maybe if Khan loses, all the British boxers that were trying to get their chance at fighting him might just get their wish granted after all. But if he wins, he will be right up there with the best in the division, and should be fighting for a world title in the near future. This fight is everything for Amir Khan, Make or Break.
