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.

As expected. Arum has been salivating on making this fight long ago and the stage is set finally. If the hungry Pacquiao that fought Marquez before the knockout shows up, it will be a very short fight in favor of Pacquiao. We've seen Pac handle pressure fighters like Margarito and Rios does not have the height advantage that Margarito had. Rios will be Rios but the question will be how much of Pacquiao is left after that brutal knock out. How would his mentality be like when he feels the power of Rios.


Before the knockout, Pacquiao would eat Rios alive but that was before. Now it's a toss up. I'd say it's a 50/50 fight. I wouldn't bet on Rios either, he's not undefeated anymore so no use in preserving that. And win or lose, Rios will still make headlines rematching with Alvarado, a fight with Bradley or Provodnikov. A Pacquiao win on the other hand would net Arum a Marquez fight, a Bradley rematch and throw Pacquiao back in the Mayweather talks again.

Not betting on either fighter a sure win. I just know this will be a short fight with fans winning and Arum winning. Can't wait.

i heard they doing random drug testing


LMAO... expect a sub par pac.. the boxing community has been on to him and cannot take his jungle juice... he will never look the same without his juice ... it is obvious. pAC MAY be laying face first again sooner than later. He better get as many HENNESY COMMERICial royalties as he can. He is headed for a bad ending with his Kamikaze style!!!
