is it just me or is he already starting to slur his words?

I don't know man. He wasn't exactly a Rhodes Scholar to begin with lol It's like tryna figure out if Richard Simmons has been more flamboyant as of late.

I'm with franchise here, but I wouldn't doubt its because of him taking punishment. If he didn't think moving his head was against the law maybe he would save himself some speech impediments in the future.

Compare it with this interview from 28th November 2011.

I think there's something there, but nothing crucial.....yet.

I think he is slurring but I thought he was already a little bit like that before he started the sport.

Guys like Rios are fun to watch, but sometimes you have to wonder as you are watching these young guys in these slug fests what is going to happen to them when they get older.

he's definitely slurring his words. unfortunately for him....there's no one there to save him. not his corner or anyone in his camp. i almost feel sorry for him.

anyone remember bobby chacon? that's where rios is headed. sad.gif i loved watching chacon as a kid...but that dude took some serious punishment over the years.

Just listening to the interview he gave Chris Robinson about Broner, he sounds like he is deteriorating. I understood what he was saying but when you compare it to him speaking last year or the year before there's clear signs of slurred speech. And even in the ring I wonder how much time he has left. He is fan friendly and that's an understatement. But he just wants to brawl and that is proving detrimental to his health

He's beginning to sound like mr. bottom chin from family guy. I hope he gets a few big money fights. I hope he lands a PPV with pac because the way this guy fights he's going to need to hang em up early. He better rape and exploit boxing for all that it has to offer. He always sounded slurred but its definitely worse

Yea, I think so too. I'm scared him and ortiz are headed on the same route.

Btw I think broner probably boxes his ears off, not as skillfully as abril but effectively and maybe hurting rios in the process. I still think abril is a nightmare for everyone he faces

That's the messed up part about it to me is that Robert Garcia, for all the praise he gets as a trainer, doesn't know when to say enough's enough. He let Margarito take a beating against Pacquiao and ultimately he is as much at fault as Manny was for Margarito's career being jeopardized because of that eye injury. And I think Margarito had no right to be in the ring for the rematch against Miguel, it only further added harm to Antonio

Garcia just doesn't wave the white flag, well...he did when Escobedo was getting his ass kicked by Broner. Hopefully he's learned from those short comings. Rios gon end up like Meldrick Taylor, he should get a few big fights and leave the sport. I'd hate to see such a warrior end up the way he's going

Broner does box circles around him IMO but he gets hit too much but I still see him winning.

And that's funny you say that because I always wanted to see Rios and Ortiz go at it but at this rate I just want them both to leave the sport with their faculties intact

Rios is a scrub. Hes a human punching bag. He should be fighting Bradley not rematching a guy hes already KOd. TR has become this weak ass promotional company that results to rematching recycled fights because they dont have anymore depth.
Franchize
I still want to see an Ortiz vs Rios fight although it was better when the rival brothers were training them. I think Rios would be dumb to face Bradley at this point in his career. He has a good momentum and buzz going. Why get exposed for your lack of boxing skills so soon? lol

Yeah he definitely needs to do a stint at that Derek Zoolander School for kids that can't read. I never noticed much slurring from him, but I haven't seen the video in this thread. If anything, he talks like he's about .02 seconds from drooling, and he always has that stupid smile on his face with that silly impending giggle.

I believe that Joel dias is escobedos trainer.

if and when rios and broner fight. my official prediction is that rios won't see round 10. he's tailor made for broner. if alvarado was able to imitate a boxer and have success...and abril a real boxer who actually beat rios even though he got jobbed on the decision...broner stops him.

Rios and Guerrero should fight each other. The two most load mouth talking crap Mexican fighters! I wish they could fight each other but that Golden Boy and Top Rank feud is a major issue. I think Broner would smoke this dude!

I thought it was kind of funny how rios was talking shit about broner getting hit too much lol. That motherfucker is a human punching bag. I think broner is doing the right thing by not paying attention to him, brandon strikes me as the type of guy that could make himself look stupid.

If TR put Rios in the ring with Broner, that very well might be his last fight. I think he would get demolished by Broner. I thought the trash talking they've been doing back in forth was entertaining but Rios just kept on going and you know it's bad when Broner has to be the mature one in the situation which is saying alot.
