My judgement is that this will be fireworks! It's a 50/50 fight, because many say that Rios is tailor made for Manny, but who knows how well or not well Manny has recovered from the knockout by Marquez? Rios will be there and Manny will have to take a lot as well. Will this be an all-out brawl? A tactical boxing match? Or both?

I wish it was NOT in China. Seriously, Oriental Populations respond to fireworks or amazing things in boxing as though they are attending the opera. It will be Saturday, November 23@9PM(ET)/6PM(PT) on PPV. (Don't know what time that is in China.) Cost is $59.95 for SD broadcast and $69.95 for the HD broadcast.

Cant wait for this damn fight to come on. The weigh-in was garbage, both guys are forced to be "buddies, and Arum has hired every human possible, to pretty much clutch at straws to see who says the most "interesting" thing about the fight.

It just spells "dud" to me. I mean, Arum has these guys in China taking pictures with each other, touring, kissing babies, shaking hands, and such...as if they're on vacation. Nothing about this, tells me that a fight is about to happen...nothing.

On top of that, the undercard is nothing to be impressed with. It's like Arum didn't even try...the same goes for the Chavez/Martinez and Bradley/Marquez card...he barely lifted a finger to make that undercar worth watching.

Manny's fights have never been "events"...the public just knows that he's getting ready to fight.

Yea,

I think it will be a good fight, perhaps a great one. But the general public doesn't "know" Rios As exciting as Brandon Rios is in the ring, he's only a star to those that have the premium channels and can see him fight. Since this fight is the only thing good about this event, the undercard is such a POS, they could have just had this LIVE on HBO and made millions. This PPV at $60-$70 could bomb, badly.

Round-by Round Spoiler Thread is up, so we can start commenting in there.
