Barrera to spar Valero

By Pete "Hitman" Bamforth

"El Dinamita" Edwin Valero has revealed that he is to train with Marco Antonio Barrera for his upcoming October 6th rematch against P4P superstar Manny Pacquiao.

Valero is renowned as a heavy hitter having stopped all his 22 opponents inside the distance with 19 in the first round, making it is a wise choice by team Barrera considering the obvious similarities between Valero and Pacquiao.


Although Valero has been brought in to help prepare Marco, Edwin also believes that the experience will help him emmensley as he too prepares for a defence of his title some time in November.


Barrera, currently training in Guadalajara with his brother Jorge and team, are expected to commence training with the WBA super featherweight champion Valero on September 11th
