At 122 Fenech might be able to take him in a very close one. Barrera winning wouldn't be a shocker either. I think we're looking at a back and forth war though.

I would pick the great Marco Antonio Barrera, the Baby Faced Assassin from Mexico by late KO. It would be a great war.

Great fight, Fenech didn’t stop at 122 for long because he was so starved at bantam and super bantam.
I get the conventional wisdom that Barrera was a better boxer etc..
Fenech was a fighter, his fitness was way superior to MAB at this weight, and so was his chin and insane desire.
MAB will land heaps and wear more. He won’t deal with the pace, the elbows, headbutts etc.. and will get rescued in about Round 9

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the main event of the evening! This is a 12-round bout between two of the greatest fighters of all time, in the featherweight division. In the red corner, we have Jeff Fenech, the Australian powerhouse with a record of 29 wins, 0 losses, and 21 knockouts. And in the blue corner, we have Marco Antonio Barrera, the Mexican legend with a record of 63 wins, 7 losses, and 42 knockouts. Let's get ready to rumble!

Round 1: The fighters touch gloves, and the bell rings. Fenech comes out aggressively, throwing hard shots to the body and head. Barrera is more patient, using his footwork to avoid Fenech's punches and land some of his own. Close round, but Fenech edges it with his aggression.

Round 2: Fenech continues to press forward, but Barrera starts to find his range with his jab and counterpunches. Fenech's face is already showing signs of damage, as Barrera lands a clean right hand. Another close round, but this time it goes to Barrera.

Round 3: Fenech comes out swinging again, but Barrera is now more confident and starts to pick his shots with precision. Fenech's punches are starting to lose their power, and he looks tired. Barrera takes this round easily.

Round 4: Fenech is now desperate and tries to bully Barrera with his strength, but Barrera keeps his composure and lands some beautiful combinations. Fenech's left eye is now swollen shut, and he's bleeding from his nose. Another round for Barrera.

Round 5: Fenech's corner tries to motivate him, but he looks exhausted and in pain. Barrera takes advantage of the situation and lands some heavy shots. Fenech goes down for the first time in his career! He gets up, but he's clearly hurt. Barrera smells blood and goes for the kill, but the bell saves Fenech.

Round 6: Fenech's corner should consider stopping the fight, but Fenech is a warrior and refuses to give up. Barrera knows he has the fight under control and doesn't take any risks. He wins the round easily.

Round 7: Fenech tries to come back, but Barrera is too slick and too fast. Fenech's punches are wild and ineffective, and he eats a lot of counters. Barrera is having fun now and starts to showboat a little.

Round 8: Fenech's corner finally throws in the towel. The fight is over! Marco Antonio Barrera wins by technical knockout!

What a performance by Barrera! He outboxed and outclassed Fenech, who simply couldn't keep up with his speed and accuracy. Barrera proves once again why he's one of the greatest featherweights of all time!
