GUADALAJARA, JAL. A dream that he's yearned for years, still remains for three time world champion boxing Marco Antonio Barrera: Be the first Mexican to achieve four world titles in different divisions and this Saturday will begin the road to try to achieve that in 2011 when he faces Jose Arias at the Coliseum Olympico.

Marco Antonio was 139.5 lbs, while Arias was 140. The fight of the "Baby Faced Assassin" is the star bout in card put together by Zanfer and Top Rank and will be broadcast by TV Azteca and Fox Sports.
