I almost forgot about this...
Philipino boxer Pacquiao ROCKED Marco Antonio Barrera at the Alamodome on 11/15/03 (I think this is the date).
He looked great, like a hurricane fists of fury. Crazy. All heart, all power, all speed. This guy looked friggin scary in the ring. He took some hits, but shelled out about twice the amount of throws that Barrera threw.

Pacquiao is the man! He dethroned the king of featherweights - Barrera, who was also my personal fave after he beat the crap out of Prince Naseem. I hear that Eric Morales (Barrera's nemesis) is very keen about a match-up with the "Pac-man". Could you imagine if he were to lose to Pacquiao, as well? I've got a few hispanic friends who've been looong overdue for some serious ribbing.

Pac is the man!! I saw the fight and I was nervous for Pac because Barrera was world best p4p fighter. I guess the Pacman will make millions now. He is an HBO fighter and could make PPV if he plays his cards right. There is another pinoy fighter whos name I forgot but is also comming up in a heavier weight division. He has a Japanese trainer.

Pac is like a fireball fistful of furry. I wonder how long he can fight with that type of energy and explosiveness. I bet a bunch of the premier featherweights have chills running down their spine. He's fast, can take punches, and he can keep coming at ya.

OMG I saw that fight. Ive watched Barrera fight many times and He is considered one of the best pound for pound boxers in the world.
I was shocked to see him get taken to school by Pacquiao. He was like the energizer bunny. All of his punched were thrown with power and with great speed every single round. I was suprised he had so much endurance. Inhuman.
I hear hes like a god over in the Philipines.

I know I've already mentioned this in my post. But, Eric Morales, Barrera's nemisis, has already made it known that he's interested in a match with Pac-man.
Life is good!

Pacman is going to have to move up in weight in order to face morales. It was said that manny lost 20% of his punching power in exchange for increased speed and stamina againts barrera. Still looked like he had one hell of a punch to me knocking down barrera 3 times. Morales better watch out. Manny is one bad mofo. I was watching that fight with a equal number of pinoys and mexicans and the fight almost spilled over to the spectators. Sore loosers woulda got their ass beat too.
