Default Re: Rios (10) vs Alvarado (4) - Leaguesters make your pick

Props where props are due, Im not a Top Rank/Bob Arum fan, but he put on an awesome free night of fights for Saturday.

You cant get much better then this type of card

Headlining are two top boxers, a p4p'er fighting a top tier opponent in his weightclass
The leadup are another two top fighters, but with a totally different style matchups. Two pitbulls ready to maul eachother.

Two high level fights, 4 high level fighters, 2 completely different types of matchups that will appeal to the purists, and the bloodlusters.

Should be an awesome night!

But I just think Alvarado will be too big, too strong, for Rios.

We will see though, cant wait!
That prediction is gonna cost you another defeat in the peoples championship Kirk Alvarado is strong, but can be beat. He was put through hell against Prescott and Herrera who, both of who is no where near as tough and strong (props to both of them though for their performance) as Rios.

I dont see Rios knocking Alvarado out though. But he should be able to outhustle him without succombing to Alvarado's power.

Yep, most definitely. It'd be really easy for Donaire, Top Rank, and Bob Arum to just say no to someone of Nishioka's caliber. Most definitely have to tip your hat to Arum.

Major upset, not sure what happened during the fight (be it a robbery or not), but according to BoxRec, Mateo Handig won by SD against Takayama.
