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?

I don't think Pacquaio is done as a fighter, a lot of people forget he was tattoing Marquez up until the point where he got caught. It's boxing and it happens from time to time. What I'm concerned with is if there are any lingering effects of the KO. We will see on Nov 23rd but I expect Manny to put on a show and I expect Rios to make things tough for a while

As for the testing that whole thing seems a little shady, but it always appears that way when testing and Pacquiao is involved. Ariza is throwing some shade but he making himself look kinda foolish in the process. He alluding to stuff that could technically put him in a bad light too since he was Manny's S & C coach. Not very smart IMO
