Boxing results Jan, 29, 2011: Barrera loses to Bautista

BARRERA trained well to the extent of having sparred with Daniel Ponce de Leon. . He was able to pinpoint Bautista's weakest parts, his "glass chin" which according to him was Boom-Boom's waterloo.

Barrera's team was all set to grab back the honor and prestige denied them last Aug. 28 (2010) where in the same arena Barrera lost by a controversial TKO decision. Barrera did show his boxing prowess in the first 2 rounds, with Bautista's chin in mind but the target proved elusive.

As luck would have it, while punches were flying here and there, both boxers were stunned when suddenly one of them buckled down the canvas. During the slo-mo, it was clear Boom-Boom vicious left hook had penetrated Barrera's right abdomen. Barrera writhed in pain and shoved the canvas with a glove to show his disgust.

Referee Bruce McTavish stepped in time to prevent Bautista from doing the kill.

Barrera managed a smile and hug Boom-Boom who was adjudged winner by knockout victory.which came at 2 minutes and 56 seconds of the 3rd round.

      I go with your wish that Bautista will outbox Barrera's cousin Alejandro based on facts: the pride of Bohol is younger, he's 24 yrs. old as against Alejandro who's 30. Their record speaks, Bautista- 28-2-0 (21 KOs) versus Alejandro- 20-3-0-(13 KOs) Bautista will experience less pressure advantage the fact that the bout is staged on home soil. On August 28, I want to see a more alert Bautista with globes finding their targets ahead of the Mexican.
