Barrera turned down Beterbiev to fight bum Paul Parker for less money and he turned down kovalev to fight bum Valera for less money & a chance for a world title, and then he turned down kovalev again to get knocked against a prospect for less money.

sick management hes got there.

He's a top ten guy. More of a B level fighter than a C level fighter. He took a risk against a green prospect probably to try to get more money in a potential future unification fight but it backfired.

Again, 20/20 hindsight. If Barrera had won, his plan would’ve been justified. Think about every failed decision you ever made. Seemed like a good idea at the time, didn’t it? Lol

That pretty much sums it up. Good logic, bad move. Happens all the time.

I posted a couple of times against that move, krusher probably ko'd him too, but that's the way it was supposed to be and he'd have more money in his pocket, he'd still be able to get some decent fights and payouts, there's no shame in losing to the main guy and major draw in the division, now he'd be a gatekeeper at best, fighting for peanuts.

He went for a guy that is dangerous but without too much to gain. I don’t blame him at all, that’s the only reason I still have little respect for Mosley (Even after his PED shame) for fighting Forrest (RIP) when he could have fought bigger names in those days .

I think that’s a little pessimistic. Barrera took a step back with that loss, but “gatekeeper?” A little too early to say that. He’s still in the mix. Who really thought Sullivan was championship material in the first place? He’s a solid contender that’ll always fall short against the big boys. Until Barrera takes another loss or two, he can still land fights against some names.

Lol yeah I knew what he was trying. It didn't pan out but he had the stones to fight a tough looking belt holder/prospect. Hey, it was worth a shot.

Yeah, I think so. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. It is what it is. I think Barrera still has enough left to have a worthwhile career. He’s got a good, aggressive style, and just good enough to beat all but the top guys. Admittedly, however, he’s running out of space with that last loss.
