Barrera actually changed his approach twice. Early in his career, and I was ringside at his first US fight when he was 18, he was very much a boxer, especially in his fights with Israel Perez and Eddie Cook. When he started appearing on PPVs he became much more aggressive, then later became a more thoughtful fighter, as he had been early in his career.
The most dramatic change, according to what I've read, was in Cornelius Boza-Edwards, noted for the legendary wars he engaged in, with bobby Chacon among others. Apparently he began as a more careful fighter, but bazooka limon threatened to kill him, which got under his skin and they got to fighting and it went from there.

Barrera actually changed direction twice, as he began his career as a boxer, becoming more of an all-out type fighter when he began appearing on PPvs, before becoming a more thoughtful fighter later on.
Cornelius Boza-Edwards began his career as more of a boxer until Bazooka Limon threatened to kill him. Boza-Edwards decided not to go without a fight and became legendary for the wars he subsequently engaged in.
