Prediction,

Carlos Adames seems like a good prospect, 24, so definitely still learning, 13-0, 11 stoppages, so he can punch. Adames has been 11 full rounds, so long distance isn't something he lacks despite being a puncher. We don't know how good Adames is, but it is good to see an untested fighter, step up, work his way up through the levels. Alejandro Barrera is I think a step up in opposition for Adames, Carlos Molina was a good win, but Barrera has less losses, is younger, and may have more left in the tank than Molina.

In the last 6 years, Barrera has only lost 3, and won 9 in that time, two were disputed decisions, so very close, and the other was against Errol Spence Jr, he was stopped in 5, no worse than Chris Algieri, not a lot quicker than Leonard Bundu and Lamont Peterson.

I think Adames will win big. Barrera can punch, but I don't think he is as heavy handed as Adames, Admaes is younger, and I think as well, because Adames is the prospect, the unbeaten fighter on the up, who should be out to not only win but make a statement, I think he should win this, and win well.

I think Adames will stop Barrera, maybe in 8 rounds.

Good performance from Adames, good win, I wasn't very, very impressed, I think he has a lot to learn, I think to say he is the future of boxing, to talk about him in the same sentence as Crawford and Spence, I think that's getting carried away, but Adames is young, progressing, and I think he is a talented fighter.

Adames is very physically strong, he hits very hard, and I think he is a really good, talented offensive fighter, he probably trains very hard, he fights hard, but I don't know if he is that well schooled, he lacks the basics, his feet are slow, and when an opponent attacks him, he seems to have the very good, but solitary option of opening up, getting into a gunslinger, and doing damage, which he does well, but in this fight, had Barrera been maybe just higher calibre, maybe a bigger puncher, with the same preparedness and desire, Adames could have been in real trouble, and I wouldn't imagine he is a fighter who is good at knowing what to do when he is hurt.

Barrera was brillaint in this fight, was badly hurt in rounds 2, 4, 10, but always weathered the storm, never went down, stood his ground, held his own, and he did some very good work, has the fitness, the output, wanted to win every bit as much as Adames, fired off great head body combinations, landed cracking punches, he was just not good enough, in against the more talented fighter, the bigger puncher, and an opponent who did all the damage.

I think Adames tired, I think late on, he struggled for pace, he had taken a lot of punches, thrown a lot, burned up a lot trying to blast Barrera out early, and although he took all Barrera's punches fine, they still accumulate, and it is always fatiguing to take a lot of solid shots. Adames did prove to have very good variety, worked very well in exchanges, attacked the body, was good at taking rests in the late rounds, but knowing when to get back on the offensive, and that finish was brilliant, waited until Barrera was in need of some respite, and at that point, caught him with a well exectued shot, capitalised very well.
