Default Brandon rios v John Murray Dec 3 on Cotto/Margo. WHY!?

What the Hell did John Murray do, other than get stopped by
a guy katsidis ****ed up, to get a shot at brandon rios? Also,
why is rios taking such an easy fight when michael katsidis
is obviously not busy. this is a stupid fight and won't go past
3 rounds. If they wanted to warm up fans prior ro Cotto/Margo
then why not get Katsidis to fight rios underneath? **** Arum!

The heck are you talking about? The Cotto-Marg II line-up is pretty sweet. Rios-Murray is perfect for an undercard fight. It'll be a fun scrap for about 4-5 rounds. The majority of people will just be waiting for the main showdown; therefore quick and entertaining fights like these work very well. Besides, Rios-Katsidis is something that deserves it's own event. It's not the kind you want to waste on an undercard. Not to mention Katsidis being a GBP fighter (I think?); making it impossible to use him in a Top Rank event.

Yeah, I don't want to see Kats get another horrible beating. Too many, too often for that guy and he deserves a little cash and healthy retirement.

Errrrmmm Katsidis does have a fight lined up

Have to agree otherwise Murray was not the right choice for this fight, I hate it when fighters get big fights coming off a loss and the winner is left to take on small fry. Personally I would have rather seen Rios-John Molina (guarenteed four round war) or Hank Lundy.

because it's a ****ing under card fight and because Rios is coming after two extra hard fights and deserves a soft touch

Who gives a shit? Rios is a ****ing bum that will be soon exposed by another bum. And then to top it off you have one of the most overrated fighters in the history of the sport: Cottoe.

I have no problem with Rios fighting Murray.
I think it will definitely be an exciting fight. Rios should win, but, Murray is no slouch himself.

I know, I know. People like the easy - Katsidis beat Mitchell, Mitchell beat Murray.... and Rios would have easily beaten Katsidis logic. But, it's never that simple. Prior to losing to Katsidis alot of people were very high on Mitchell. And prior to losing to Mitchell alot of people were high on Murray. Fighters lose fights.... and it doesn't always mean the end of their career.

Eat your heart out. Rios is going to make alot of money. Great chin, tough as nails, can punch like no tomorrow, and is opinionated. He draws and pisses people off like you whereas they pay to see him fight .
