The fight last Sunday was bloody as the now hard hitting Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista defeated Barrera on their rematch. The first fight was a mess when a cut was suffered by one of the fighters and the call for stoppage came to light. In the first few rounds, we all thought it was going to be the same fate for both as heads clashed and banged a few times but it got controlled so the fight went on until Barrera suffered a knock down but was able to get up (i think in the 3rd round).
Anyway, I thought it was the end for Barrera but no, he still managed to get up and fight the Filipino fighter so the boxing match went on. Somewhere in the middle of the fight, another knock down was suffered by Barrera and this time he could not recover from that punch.
The Pinoy fighter prevailed and put a dot to Barrera’s career in that match. He suffered a knockout defeat. Boom Boom is now ready for Ponce De Leon according to some boxing afficionados but I say no. He will be defeated with such a cocky and arrogant style of boxing. True, he is a little bit stronger but he still had that attitude and I can see it, we all saw it in that fight.
