Default Bradley vs Rios

With Rios in an eliminator for the wbo belt next month could this fight be on the cards for next spring?

How does everyone see this going if it is made?

Rios ought to be at 147

Bradley would stop him. I really think that Rios is living on borrowed time, the weight cutting is going to catch up with him very shortly.

It's not as if he's just a fat knacker like Hatton used to be, shifting the blubber. He's a naturally big guy, with limited skills. He was shown up by Abril, and shouldn't consider stepping up in class too far.

Yeah don't think Rios can compete with the best at higher weights imo

Hopefully Bradley knocks him out. I see a Bradley points win though.

Bradley boxes Rios' head off, Rios is one dimensional.

Bradley mauls him, outboxes him and wins on via UD.

The Abril decision was absolutely atrocious and showed once again that a durable, conditioned decent boxer can beat the larger, aggressive banger with limited skills.

Rios may not be as shit as people are making out. Abril is as tricky as they come and no one looks good against him. Add to that how Rios couldn't eat for days trying to make weight. We'll see how strong he looks when he goes to war with Alvarado. I'm still not sure he'll even make weight at 140 lbs tbh.

Rios should go to 147 pretty quickly before he gets flattened

So to that end id think if he survives Alvarado (big ask IMO) they may just make this fight up at 47

Bradley has too much for Rios at the weight and in general, he would stand up to Rios's pressure and jab him to death, he'd nullify Rios on his way to a one sided beat down IMHO

I cant see Rios being relevant this time in 2 years TBH
