I've been a big fan throughout Erik's career he was one of the guys that got me into Boxing together with Tyson and Jones but I don't want to see him fight Marquez as he would get slaughtered and hurt bad. But if he comes back, I'll definitely watch.
The 3rd fight with Pacquiao is one of the saddest things I've seen in the last several years. Just to see him sitting against the ropes shaking his head "no" after the last knockdown was deflating.
But NOTHING can ever take away from the Barrera trilogy and the rest of his career.
I just wish he'd stay retired. The wars took their toll, he can't do it anymore on a high level, and every round he fights adds to the concern for his well-being.
