Default Brandon Rios vs. Arturo Gatti and Diego Corrales

After witnessing an incredible brawl last night that had shades of Gatti-Ward and Corrales-Castillo, how do you think Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios would do against guys like Gatti and Corrales who were also exciting, big hearted blood and guts warriors? Would have been one hell of a match up.

Rios would likely beat Gatti. I give Corrales a small edge, but it could go either way. Corrales might have his biggest advantage if he used some boxing skill.

I'd like you to show a little more respect for a true warrior who gave us many great fights. Rios would've had troubles with Gatti, who I consider the better boxer. Corrales beats both.

I'd take even Gatti to beat Abril and knock out John Murray (actually knock him out) and Antillon.

Acosta at that point? Probably. Maybe, maybe not.

Corrales would wipe all of Rios' lightweight competition out as well IMO.

Assuming this is at lightweight then Corrales KOs Rios around the 6th or 7th. Rios would land a few bombs, maybe take 2 or so rounds, but Corrales would be far to much for him.

The Gatti-Rios matchup is a much tougher call, as I don't think Rios is going to be an A level fighter, but at the same time may not even cone under a B level fighter. We won't know till he actually steps up in opposition against world champions. I'll say in a 12 round war both men are fairly evenly matched and arguments could be made for both to be the winner.

I do hate sitting on the fence in fantasy match ups, but honestly I think it's the most likely outcome on this one.
