    Amir Khan Vs Marco Antonio Barrera - CONFIRMED!

    This fight is confirmed for the 14th of March at an undecided venue yet and will be on Sky Sports PPV.

    Looking forward to this fight which I think will be a cracker. Really surprised that this has actually been confirmed but I guess Sky were putting pressure on Frank Warren to deliver the big fights as they cant have been happy putting Khan on PPV against walking punchbags.

    Khan will hold all the physical advantages being the taller and bigger man. But as we shall in the Pacman De La Hoya fight, sometimes this means diddly squat!

    My prediction - Barrera to completely school Amir Khan ala Naseem Hamed style. Barrera is a living legend and one of my favorite fighters of all time and is far far from being shot.. I can see Freddie Roach throwing in the towel around the 9th or 10th round.

    Great match!

    Seen this and thought Barrera will demolish him but he will have to go up a few weight classes for the fight.

    Still hope he gives Khan a beat down

    Barrera (as far as am aware) has only ever fought at lightweight once.

    Amir Khan is naturally bigger and has been campaigning at lightweight for most of his career

    He moved up to Lightweight in 2008 looking to win a title in 4 different weight divisions.

    it's PPV because the deal was struck for X amount (think it was 5?) of PPV fights just before he lost to Prescott. the fights weren't meant to be rebuilding his career. lol

    Therefore won't have to come up any weight divisions to fight Khan :thumbsup:

    khan is a natural lightweight, barrera is natural at 3 divisions lower. yes he has fought at lightweight but i still think this will be closer than expected. I dont care who wins..it should be a good fight.

    prescott is a class above everyone in the division, Amir should knock this cheat out

    What are you talking about?!?!

    Class above Marquez, Campbell, Casamayor, Katsidas and Diaz based on the 53 seconds that you watched him for?!?!

    Casual fans says the dumbest things sometimes! :-D

    Agree! Lets see how he gets on against fighters with a solid chin!

    Oh good, more avatar material...

    One of the most ring savvy men in the game vs someone who still makes absolutely ridiculous amateurish mistakes :?

    Barrera is as tough as they come and will not be 'caught in the headlights' of a khan assault as per most of khans wins.

    barrera to finish this kids career off within 9. (assuming he aint shot, never seen his only fight at this weight gonna d/l it later)
