Rios is sounding like a man convinced that he has a shot at beating Pac. I applaud the guy for having a strong belief in himself. I am actually pulling for Rios in this fight. Its not because I dislike Pac (I do loath his fans), its because Rios is a true L.A Clipper fan. I respect that. My question, is anyone giving Rios a shot to win? By all accounts this is a tune up fight to welcome Pac back. I am not sure if Pac still has what it takes to be the Pac of old. If Rios goes the full 12 rounds and looks good after the fight then I call that a success. He ain't getting a decision, no way. In interviews that Pac has given, he is saying that he is re-dedicated to the sport and that he will not look for the knock out but will box Rios (ha). The only problem with his strategy is that he isn't a boxer and he knows he isn't a boxer. If Pac's strategy is trying to box Rios, this fight maybe interesting. Be prepared for all the nut sucking from HBO commentators.


Alex "Slimmer" Ariza just did an interview saying how it isn't fair that Rios is getting tested and not Pac. He claims he isn't suspicious of Pac but he should still be getting tested like Rios.... Did Alex just tell on himself? Does anyone find it remotely strange that all of a sudden Pac has no problem with additional testing? Did he finally get over his fear or needles and being weakened before the fight? Interesting how the media isn't calling Pac a hypocrite.

If Rios wins, how much credit can we give Ariza?

Not gonna be an easy fight for Rios. Pacquiao was beating Juan pretty badly before the KO came, and he looked sharper, since the 3rd fight and the Bradley fight. I haven't seen Pac in an inside fight...maybe never. The closest I've seen to it, is when Bradley forced the clinch a few times, and needless to say...it looked weird.

I haven't EVER seen Rios fight from the outside...at least effectively anyway. As for this Ariza mess...when isn't it a mess? Pac suddenly thinks testing is good for the sport?! You know what, I believe him! Arum may not have wanted that testing, but Im sure Pac didn't give a damn if they did testing or not.

Wait a minute...did I read that correctly? Pac's not gonna get tested, til he gets to China for the fight?! A week before the fight?! Say whaaat? So basically, Pac's not gonna get tested, until the fight. Sounds fishy to me, but again, people dont wanna believe that Mosley was being tested, while Pac wasn't. Oh wait, did he get tested the week of the fight, while Shane got tested the whole time?
