I guess, I’m not a good fortune teller. Pacquiao was not able to KO Barrera, but of course, he won convincingly in a unanimous decision. Not that Pacquiao lost his power, it’s just that Barrera successfully achieved his only goal for that fight. Quoting Michael Marley, “You cannot knock out a guy whose only goal is NOT to get knocked out.” Obviously, Barrera knew that if he engaged Manny in a slugfest, he’ll lose. So, he just did what he needed to do: to stay on his feet until the last round so that he can mock Erik Morales saying,”I lasted 12 rounds of boxing with Manny, while you are knocked out on the 3rd round, nyenyenyenyenye!”
Congratulations Manny! Now, I’m looking forward to your next fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. Mabuhay ang Pambansang Kamao!
