Manny Pacquiao-Brandon Rios is set for November 23rd in China. It will be an exciting fight but I think I will pass on paying $60-$70 for it unless Arum stacks the undercard. This is a pretty marginal fight for Pac, but it's the best he can do with JMM and Bradley fighting each other.

I think Rios takes this one. As we've seen from him as of late, his defense a bit underrated and he will pick up where Margarito left off. He's quicker than Margs, he takes a punch just about the same, and his hand speed is better.

I wont say that Rios will walk away from this one unscathed, but Manny will have his work cut out for him. He looked pretty good in the Marquez fight before the knockout, but I think Rios will make him work even harder for it at this stage.

i agree...he'll pick up where margarito left off....getting his ass beat. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

i can't see rios lasting more than 5 rounds. even against a depleted version of pac. pac is going to fire on this kid and put him to sleep.

rios defense looked spotty at best against alvarado. rios has gone as high as he's going to go. he's tailor made for a guy like pac. he's a slower, extremely less skilled version of the kind of guys manny was beating to earn the name mexicutioner. this was the fight arum should have made after the bradley loss. we might have still been talking about mayweather/pac as a relevant fight had he done that.

It remains to be seen. As much as I want to say that he's tailor made for Manny, I wanted him to stay as far away from a fight of this nature after the Marquez loss.
