Fight Hub TV: "What do you think about Sergio Martinez against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr?"

Marco Antonio Barrera: "Big fight."

Fight Hub TV: "Big fight. What's your opinion on it? Who wins? Why?"

Barrera: "Well in Mexico, they think that Julio wins, because he's the Mexican, but it's a very good fight for all the people who like it as a sport."

Fight Hub TV: "Do you think the night of the fight, Julio will be too big for Sergio?"

Barrera: "Yeah, he's very big."

Fight Hub TV: "What do you think about Canelo coming up at 154? How do you see him growing as a fighter?"

Barrera: "Well it's a different weight, but I want to see Canelo with Julio Cesar Chavez. It's a very good fight."

Fight Hub TV: "If Canelo and Junior were to fight, who do you think would win?"

Barrera: "I don't know."

Fight Hub TV: "It's a difficult fight, huh?"

Barrera: "It's difficult for all the Mexicans."

Fight Hub TV: "What was the toughest fight in your career?"

Barrera: "Kennedy McKinney and Erik Morales. Tough fights."

Fight Hub TV: "What's your best memory in boxing inside the ring?"

Barrera: "When I fought Naseem Hamed."

Fight Hub TV: "Naseem came in as a big favorite, and you upset him. He was never the same after you."

Barrera: "Yeah, he fought one time and he retired."

Fight Hub TV: "I think because of that fight, you became a star in your own right."

Barrera: "Exactly. For that reason, it's the fight I like to remember."
