Rios could have lucrative career as an undercard fighter...pitch him in there against brawlers and he makes for a good show.

Hell no. It's only just begun. He'll continue to be in fights with brawlers from now on until he has a solid performance and Arum decides to put him in the ring with yet another guy who he can't beat. The writing is already on the wall. His next fights will be against Provodnikov and Alvarado, in no particular order. Then, depending on how he does, he face a guy like Tim Bradley, who'll probably box his face off. The only time you're done in Top Rank is if you aren't "entertaining" enough. As long as he can get hit and keep coming forward, Arum will have a paycheck for him.

I don't think Rios wants to change his fighting style. He likes getting the shit beat out of him and likes beating the shit out of other people when he can. look at all his fights. Same style nothing different. I worry about his health, he is already slurring his speech and he just looks lost most of the time. He will be a gate keeper for the up and coming fighters. He isn't a smart boxer and is limited on his weapons, what does Brandon do well but take punishment. I like Rios, a lot. he reps the Clippers and I dig that. But as a fighter is concerned, he is the broke man's Gatti.

Rios is far from done. He can beat many face first fighters such as himself at their own game and whether choose to believe it or not there are a few boxers he can beat. He won't beat any elite fighters though, I can't see him beating the upper echelon of fighters in and around his weight class

he should also drop weight, 147 is not his class, he should realistically be at either 135-140

I'm not even sure he can make 140 anymore without killing himself to make weight, dude showed up on fight night as a Jr. Middleweight.
