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?

Just like you, I too cannot stand the obnoxious Pac fans (they have NO objectivity whatsoever) and I think they're using Rios as a beacon to try and prove that "Manny is back". HBO will definitely be cheerleading especially if they see him "trying" to so called "box" (we know he's no Technician in that ring) but Lampley will do his best to make it sound as though Manny has been the reborn version of the highly skilled Sugar Ray Robinson if he "looks" like he's actually "boxing" vs a limited defense having guy like Rios.

No way in hell does Rios get a "close" decision but if it is one where he is clearly and cleanly ahead then I see no reason to cheat him out of it though I suspect that this fight is taking place in China for more reasons than just money (they can make money here, why go all the way to China).

Ariza is telling on himself without implicating himself, he knows how to toe the line without crossing over it regarding Manny's PED usage (or not) but if they are making Rios test and Manny isn't testing then no, Manny hasn't gotten over his "fear" of needles and drawing blood doesn't weaken him any longer. If Rios wins then it won't be due to Ariza, it'll be because his Trainer has worked out a good enough game plan and as long as he sticks to it then Rios and Garcia should get the credit for it.
