Brandon Rios calling Victor Ortiz out
PACQUIAO: "If Bradley wants to meet the fighter who stopped De La Hoya, Hatton, Morales and Barrera, he'll get it." PhilBoxing.com Tue, 18 Mar 2014 PACQUIAO AND BRADLEY WRITE UP BLOGS. Manny Pacquiao Write-up/Blog 1: Monday, March 17 Question For Manny Pacquiao - The perception is that you sacrificed punching power against Rios in favor of speed in order to outbox him. How much did the result of the Marquez fight impact your strategy against Rios? What will be your strategy against Bradley? “I was very happy with my performance against Brandon Rios. Speed has always been a major weapon for me and I used it throughout the fight against Rios for one simple reason – it was working. The power is still there and I used it effectively against Rios to keep him off balance. Freddie and I came up with the game plan to mix things up against Rios. I would utilize my speed and foot movement in boxing him to keep him off balance then when he would come in out of frustration I would land the power punches. “The o ...

a hard fight against Karim El Ouazghari, beaten by kevin mitchell then battered by brandon rios, he deserved better
Burns-Crawford under-card. Good solid win for John Murray against John Simpson. Murray who fights at 140 pounds dismantled Simpson with murderous body shots dropping him three times in the second round. Murray is 29 with a couple of losses against Kevin Mitchell & Brandon Rios. Both fights he gave a good account of himself despite stoppage losses. It took Rios 11 rounds to get him out of there. Not sure if he will ever get to world level again but at the very least he is a European level fighter and with 140 being so bare you never know he may get the call as an opponent at some point in the future.

Looking from the outside in the Mayweather fans comments with concrete facts while the Pacquiao fans comment from emotion and from their own personal opinion. I don’t know any other athlete today or of late that has had such remarkable success and has broken so many records that he now has to break his own like Mayweather. Mayweather has remained undefeated for the last 18 years and many of those defeats were against WBC, RING, WORLD Champions and guys ranked in the top 3 in their respective divisions. Forty Five opponents made a deal signed the contract trained for months on end drew up a game plan talked trash came to the ring and TRIED their BEST and still FAILED the test of Mayweather Jr. and NO ONE held a gun to their heads or tied ...

If Pacquiao re-sign it's a dumb move ... If Pacquiao re-signs with Arum, he doesn’t get the mega-fight against Mayweather. So that’s a loss of $50 million at least for Pacquiao. Pacquiao doesn’t get Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Amir Khan, Danny Garcia, Lucas Matthysse, Shawn Porter, Devon Alexander, Lamont Peterson, and Adrien Broner. But if he says with Arum, Pacquiao get fights against Arum’s Top Rank stable fighters like Brandon Rios, Ruslan Provodnikov, Terence Crawford, Timothy Bradley, Mike Alvarado and Mikey Garcia. Is it worth it for Pacquiao to fight those guys for the next 2-3 years or is it worth it for him to be free to fight Mayweather, Canelo, Khan and Danny Garcia.
Arum: Bradley would rather fight Pacquiao than Marquez Juan Manuel Marquez wants to fight WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley again, but it looks like Bob Arum of Top Rank has other ideas for Bradley. Arum’s basically giving it away that Bradley will be Pacquiao’s next opponent on April 12th by saying that Bradley wants to fight Pacquiao again. Arum really wanted Marquez to be a part of the Pacquiao sweepstakes for a 5th fight between them. No doubt Marquez is the only guy that Arum had available to match against Pacquiao that could bring in huge PPV buys. The rest of the guys that Arum has in his stable, such as Tim Bradley, Mike Alvarado, Brandon Rios, and Ruslan Provodnikov, are guys that will likely result in low PPV buys of 475,000 to 500,000 numbers. Without Marquez or a Floyd Mayweather, I have a feeling that Pacquiao’s days of being a huge PPV fighter are pretty much finished. That’s not his fault. It’s more of a product of Arum not having the bodies to put in with him that the boxing ...

Pacquiao's wealth and Michael Koncz Source: Rappler First of two parts GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines – When Manny Pacquiao first blew the lid and complained that his bank accounts had been garnished by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), many fans and supporters immediately offered sympathy and support. After all, Pacquiao just came from a thunderous victory over Brandon Rios in Macau on November 24 – 11 months after a shock knockout loss in the hands of perennial nemesis Juan Manuel Marquez. Some say it was insensitive for the BIR to steal the sweet momentum of his victory by going after Pacquiao’s bank accounts – a show of disrespect for a national icon. But looking back at the timeline of his tax troubles, Pacquiao may also have himself to blame, those who have been watching him closely say. This is in part because he failed to take care of his tax business. Or because he entrusted too much of his financial affairs for too long to few trusted friends.

Manny Pacquiao is looking for his next opponent, following his victory over Brandon Rios. According to Bob Arum,...
After his win against Brandon Rios in Macau, Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 knockouts) was named as the mandatory challenger for the World Boxing Council’s welterweight title currently held by Floyd Mayweather (45-0-0, 26 KOs).
Manny Pacquiao has been named mandatory challenger to Floyd Mayweather Jr's WBC Welterweight title. It is not yet known whether or not Mayweather, who currently plans to fight on May 4th against a to-be-announced opponent, will relinquish the belt. Pacquiao returned from a stunning December 2012 knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez last month, beating strong contender Brandon Rios to a wide, and quite bloody, decision win. Mayweather is coming off of clear decision victories over young-gun Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and former multi-division champion Robert Guerrero.

TMT fighter Chris Pearson rates the performance of Manny Pacquio vs. Brandon Rios - fightersrated:
Manny Pacquiao beats Brandon Rios on points in comeback fight Manny Pacquiao put on a dazzling boxing display to beat American Brandon Rios and win his first fight in two years. The man from the Philippines said he would win to bring "pride and hope" back to his beleaguered nation, which is struggling to come to terms with the loss of life and devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan. In front of a crowd unanimously in his favour, he dominated former world lightweight champion Rios to win on points, landing at will and never looking in trouble. In truth, Rios was not in the class of previous Pacquiao opponents. His ponderous style of walking forward without using a consistent jab was tailor-made for the 34-year-old, who showed no rustiness, even though he had not fought since he was knocked out in losing to Juan Manuel Marquez last December. Manny Pacquiao's last 10 fights 23 Nov, 2013: v Brandon Rios (US), won (pts) 8 Dec, 2012: v Juan Manuel Marquez (Mex), lost (KO 6th) 9 Jun, 2012: v Timothy Bradley (US), ...
Manny Pacquiao Career Earnings Will Reach $300 Million With Rios Fight 3 comments, 1 called-out Comment Now Follow Comments Manny Pacquiao squares off against Brandon Rios at the Venetian Macao in Macau, China on Saturday night (it will be Sunday morning in Macau with a 13 hour time difference from New York). It marks Pacquiao’s first return to the ring since he was floored in December by Juan Manuel Marquez in their fourth battle as pros. The Rios’ fight marks another huge payday in the career of Pacman. He is guaranteed $11 million, plus another $7 million for his promotion company MP Promotions, according to Top Rank’s Bob Arum, who is promoting the Macau bout (Rios is guaranteed $4 million). Arum says Pacquiao could earn as much $30 million depending on the size of the pay-per-view audience. The huge payday will push Pacquiao’s career earnings to $300 million, including endorsements. The monster paycheck is a relatively new phenomenon for the eight-division world champion, who turns 35 next mo ...
There's a lot of similarities between Manny Pacquiao's fights with Brandon Rios (only recently) and Antonio Margarito three years ago... Both opponents are long and tall and have the reputation as brawlers... Both fought under the watchful eyes of trainer Robert Garcia... Both lost to Pacman via unanimous decision behind identical 120-108, 119-109 and 118-110 scorecards... Both were mangled beyond recognition after the fight... And finally, both remained standing after 12 full rounds on account of a sturdier than usual chin and because Manny pulled back on his punches in the last two rounds... :)
Filipinos should get the real lesson from Pacquiao’s latest victory November 26, 2013 by ChinoF Once again, Filipino boxer extraordinaire Manny Pacquiao claims another victory, this time over Brandon Rios. This is supposed to uplift people’s spirits in the wake of the destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. And it’s probably making up for the loss against Juan Manuel Marquez last year. Again, Filipinos are going to say “Pinoy pride,” something that we’ve been shooting down in Get Real Philippines for good reason. While Pacquiao’s victory may have its good side, it will also have a bad one. Pacquiao won because of his training and his sipag at tiyaga. It certainly isn’t because of his being Filipino. It’s just a lucky coincidence that he is Filipino. It’s the same point as in my previous articles on Gilas Pilipinas and Megan Young. However, Pinoy Pridists will claim Pacquiao is a great boxer because he’s Filipino. They’re only after praising Pacquiao in order to boost their ow ...

The three ringside judges scored the fight 120-108, 119-109 and 118-110 as Pacquiao handed out a lesson in clinical boxing to his less-experienced American opponent before a sold-out 13,200 audience packed with Filipinos at Macau's Cotai Arena. The Filipino great, who had lost his last two fights, took the 12-round contest to Rios from the first bell, connecting with lightning combinations to the body and head behind a stinging left-hand lead. Rios was on the canvas following a body shot in the first round, but the referee ruled no knockdown because the former lightweight world champion had slipped. Rios proved durable, taking blow after blow that might have finished off many boxers as Pacquiao gave him an all-over body workout and a boxing lesson in the American's debut at welterweight. Pacquia ...
Take a moment of silence to reflect. Now that you've done that- I want you to stare at the face of Brandon Rios. Do it again. While you were doing that, I was taking a moment to reflect on a man and his nation, having endured the ravages of a storm and its “afterwrath”. For Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios, this word, which won’t appear in any dictionary, has two different meanings. Let’s start with Filipino icon Pacquiao, in the wake of his comprehensive destruction of Brandon Rios. Coming into this bout with Rios, Pacquiao had never been subjected to more doubt or daunting pressure, as many reporters and analysts of the sport besieged him with doubt, and hung into question the “wiseness” of his choice of the dangerous Rios in his return from the Marquez defeat. Many of these same reporters and analysts actually picked Rios to defeat Pacquiao outright, or scare the *** out of him while challenging him greatly in defeat. Pacquiao had to listen to all of this, while constantly reliving images o ...

After Typhoon Haiyan, the people of the Philippines need all the hope they can get. And on Nov. 24, their native son delivered at least a little, defeating Brandon Rios with an authoritative victor...
MACAU – The specter of Floyd Mayweather Jr. once again loomed large following a Manny Pacquiao fight, and it's been a while since that could be said. Pacquiao used his blinding hand and foot speed to batter Brandon Rios into submission on Saturday at CotaiArena in his first fight in nearly a year after being knocked cold. Following a lost year in 2012, which included losses to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez and dropping his position as the best fighter in the world not named Mayweather to Andre Ward, Pacquiao seemed to regain his mojo fighting before an energized crowd of supporters. The sellout crowd of 13,101 lustily roared at every Pacquiao combination that landed. Pacquiao went hard, early and often, to the body and easily won the unanimous decision. Judge Michael Pernick saw it 120-108, a shutout, the same as Yahoo Sports. Lisa Giampa scored it 119-109, giving Rios the eighth. Manfred Kuechler scored the fight 118-110, judging the third and eighth rounds for Rios. It was so close to the fi ...
Contrary to this writer's assertion, I think the Marquez KO, if anything, has made Manny a smarter fighter. There's no question about his speed and power. He needs to be smart if he is to finally face Money May. And no, I'm not one of those instant boxing analysts :) I'm just sayin'... PACQUIAO GOOD ENOUGH TO DOMINATE RIOS BUT NOT THE SAME ‘PACMAN’ by Doug Fischer November 23, 2013 Share this story 63 Despite being stopped in his last fight and off for almost a year, Manny Pacquiao was too sharp for Brandon Rios to handle. Pacquiao won a lopsided decision against the slugger but didn’t look like the dynamic world-beater he was just two years ago. Everyone knew that Manny Pacquiao was the superior fighter coming into his welterweight fight with Brandon Rios. The version of the Filipino icon that retired Oscar De La Hoya, annihilated Ricky Hatton and wore down Miguel Cotto would run right through Rios, despite how rugged the 27-year-old slugger is. However, those fights took place five years ago. Much ...

Pacquiao Beats Rios In Unanimous Decision by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS November 24, 2013 4:14 AM MACAU (AP) — Manny Pacquiao reversed the decline in his boxing career and provided some desperately needed inspiration to the disaster-stricken Philippines with an authoritative victory over Brandon Rios on Sunday. Pacquiao entered the fight coming off successive defeats, having spent a year out of the ring and with his own trainer publicly declaring he should retire unless he convincingly beat Rios. In addition, Pacquiao carried the burden of being the favorite son of the Philippines and the man the nation looked to as a source of joy and hope in the wake of deadly Typhoon Haiyan. Thousands of fans watched the fight on screens set up in the plaza of Tacloban, the Philippine city hit worst by the Nov. 9 disaster that killed more than 5,000 people and left huge numbers of the population homeless. If Pacquiao felt pressure, he didn't show it in the ring at The Venetian casino in Macau, putting on a vintage display ...
Brandon Rios achieved something that Oscar De La Hoya and Miguel Cotto couldn't do with Manny Pacquiao. Go figure.
Brandon Rios was talking about Floyd but last night he got chowed by Pacquiao ...Tired of Top Rank and there Clown Fighters man..
The Pacq is back! Manny Pacquiao just soundly defeated Brandon Rios by a 12-round unanimous decision early today, dedicating it to all the victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda. Rios, while himself a tough opponent, proved to be obviously nowhere near the league of the People's Champ and found the latter too great and obstacle to hurdle. To Manny Boy, congrats, bro! Sana magtuluy-tuloy na ang pagbabalik natin alang-alang sa sambayanang Pilipinong nangangailangan ng isang bayaning tulad mo.
Manny Pacquiao outdo Brandon Rios in their fight & dedicates his impressive victory to Typhoon Haiyan victims. Dz
Glad to hear the victory of Manny Pacquiao over Brandon Rios which happened in Macau earlier. I'm not really a 'boxing fan' yet I'm happy that it quite lifted the nation's (Philippines) spirit despite of the damages that the Typhoon Haiyan had caused. Viva Pilipinas!
A complete and through dismantling of Brandon Rios tonight led many to beleive that Manny Pacqiuao is back and ready to go. Manny looked every bit the Manny that destroyed Ricky Hatton,Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. He beat Rios to the punch,using his superior hand and foot speed to befuddle the over-matched Rios,from Oxnard Ca. With crisp left leads,double hooks and a right cross that seemingly found it's mark all night, Pacqiuao built up an early lead that he never would relinquish. He had Rios hurt on more than one occasion but never put the game fighter down. Rios was completely over-matched,and it was evident early on. Pacqiuao took control early in the fight,landing his left lead at will while Rios shook his head to let Manny know he wasn't hurt,meaning the opposite. Rios did this the entire fight while Manny built up a lead while the pro Pacqiuao crowd chanted his name. Let's see where this takes Manny. The only fight tht we all want to see will never happen,and an Amir Khan fight would neve . ...
Robert Garcia should now stop dreaming. First, it was Antonio Margarito and now, Brandon Rios. He trained both fighters. Both badly beaten by Pacman. He should also now apologize to Freddie Roach.
What an upset for Baylor U by Oklahoma State U! Anxious for the Alabama/Auburn game next Saturday. 󾌵 Er, who is Brandon Rios? I only know his nickname - "Big Joke". Seriously!!! Money spoke, rich fools won't be broke! 󾰴
I liked a video Manny Pacquiao knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez.FULL HD! Pacman v Brandon Rios
Brandon Rios is dope but he isnt quite Tim Bradley or dare i say Floyd Mayweather!!!
The 12th comes to fruition with Manny Pacquiao looking like the same man who came out of the dugout. Brandon Rios absorbs another combination, taunts Pacquiao to hit him on the ropes. Pacquiao gives a high-five in the middle of the round, follows up with a combination opening up Rios’ cut above the left eye. The southpaw hitting on his power punches as he turns Rios into a smaller version of Antonio Margarito. Pacquiao offers his sportsmanship with a hug after the bell.
Here's what Brandon Rios, Antonio Margarito, Shane Mosley, Ricky Hatton, Joshua Clotty, Oscar De La Hoya, Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barerra and even Juan Marquez don't get. If you want to stand straight in front of Manny Pacquiao and try to go toe to toe with him. Good luck with that. He's faster and hits harder. LEARN TO BOX!
Brandon Rios is nothing more than Antonio Margarito.. Just another Robert Garcia stiff
Brandon Rios is doing a great Antonio Margarito impression against Manny Pacquiao.
This fight is boring. I bet Pacquiao chose to fight Brandon Rios because Rios is a younger version of Antonio Margarito and he knew it would be an easy win.
Brandon Rios is in serious need of a maturity lesson. He is nothing more than Antonio Margarito..
"Yoo... Brandon Rios need some head movement .."he has none
