Barrera: Pacquiao Deserves To Be The Mexicutioner

By Lem Satterfield

LAS VEGAS -- On February 12, less than a month after his 37th birthday, five-time titlist Marco Antonio Barrera of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, scored a knockdown in each round on the way to a second-round stoppage of 43-year-old journeyman Jorge Arias of Providence, R.I.

The win represented the 44th knockout, and the 67th victory overall against seven losses for Barrera, who ended a nine-fight winning streak by Arias (15-2, nine KOs) that had included seven consecutive knockout wins for a man who was stopped for the first time in his career.

Barrera gave his opinion on Manny Pacquiao being called the "Mexicutioner," a nickname which stems from his numerous victories over top Mexican boxer.

"Obviously he's he has earned the right to be called the Mexicutioner or whatever he wants to be called. Because not only has he beaten all Mexicans, but he's beaten guys from wherever. He's beaten Americans and he has done it at lightweight [135 pounds,] welterweight [147 pounds,] and, at super welterweight [154 pounds,] so, he's got the name that he deserves," Barrera said.

Im amazed people find it offensive. Its a light hearted nick name. Roger Mayweather was called the Mexican Assasin before JCC destroyed him for a 2nd time. Just a bit of fun. All this sensitivity is ridiculous.
