Description : Here we have an original super-scarce official onsite main event boxing fight poster for the world featherweight championship title bout held at the Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas, USA, 15th November 2003.

Manny Pacquiao first met Marco Antonio Barrera at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on Nov. 15, 2003. Barrera, aka the Baby Face Assassin, was 57-3 and would have been a great fighter in any era. Barrera had won his last eight fights since his loss to Erik Morales in 2000, whereas Pacquiao had won his last 12. Manny Pacquiao was a relative unknown too those outside the hardcore fight fan circle.

The Filipino was already a two weight world champion, but this time he was stepping up in weight to face Barrera for the lineal featherweight title, and the odds were stacked against Pacquiao. Barrera entered the fight on a good run of form, which included handing Naseem Hamed his only loss and gaining revenge over his hated rival Erik Morales, and the Mexican, who was also at the time a two weight world champion, was expected to have too much for Pacquiao. Then the opening bell sounded

Barrera, the betting favourite at 4-1, was blitzed and was down in the third, before surviving the next few rounds. Pacquiao was a whirlwind of punches, overwhelming Barrera, who was once again down in the 11th, which was to be the final round. He also had a point deducted in the 9th when he hit Pacquiao on the break.

Barrera was shell-shocked and had nowhere to turn, and despite his pride, he must have been grateful for his cornerman Rudy Perez stepping on the ring apron, which forced referee Laurence Cole to stop the fight. At the time of the stoppage, Manny was ahead on all three scorecards, 97-89 and 97-90 twice.
