Barrera: Manny Pacquiao is The Best Fighter in The World

By Hesiquio Balderas

Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera worked as a color commentator for TV Azteca during the Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito pay-per-view clash which took place this past Saturday night in Arlington, Texas.

During the fight Marco gave his props to Pacquiao and made some good comments about the man he regards as the pound-for-pound king. Pacquiao exploded on the scene when scored an upset knockout of Barrera in November of 2003. The had a rematch in October of 2007, which Barrera lost by decision.

''Manny Pacquiao is the best fighter in the world. Usually a good big man will always beat a good little man, but Pacquiao is a great little man. It is amazing how he can go up in weight and beat all of these huge guys,'' said the former three time world champion Barrera.

''I wanted Margarito to win. I mean my heart was with him and I thought he had a pretty good chance, but after Pacquiao cut him - I knew it was over. Manny is a gentleman, because he had Tony hurt in the 10th round and he could have finish him, but he let Tony survive. He showed his class and that is why he is the best. I am not ashamed to be on his list of victims because he is great,'' Barrera concluded.
