he has a very good record but during their first fight, Juarez wouldn't let his hands go until 4-5 rounds left in the bout. obviously there was some identified mix up in how the scores were announced but Juarez got it into his head that he could stand there with MAB and do well. I think the second fight will be better for Juarez because he didn't get his butt beat and was able to pull the latter portion of the fight. RJuarez.
I agree:thumbsup: :cool:
I think Rocky Juarez has a great chance at beating Marcos.
Barrera defeats Juarez again!

This time WBC super featherweight champion Marco Antonio Barrera (63-4, 42 KOs) made it decisive as he dominated Rocky Juarez (25-3, 18 KOs) over twelve rounds in a workmanlike performance on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The rematch of what was an exciting fight in May turned out to be a tactical fight from round one with both fighters working at a deliberate pace. Rocky had promised to be more aggressive this time around, but that was not the case. Barrera was able to pick Juarez apart with his jab and by round six, Juarez' right eye was starting to swell shut. The pace remained slow with Barrera content to smartly outbox the strangely passive Juarez the rest of the way. In the end, the scores were 117-111 and two closer than expected 115-113, 115-113 counts.
Thanks to
