Default Rios' post-fight antics - anyone else actually like it?

Seen a few people complain about Rios' behaviour during the post-fight interview. But honestly, I applaud him for it. Both him and Alvarado. You could tell how much that fight meant to them both; with Alvarado being so passionate and defensive over the belt he just won, and Rios being bitter (in a good way!) at not getting the victory after spilling his heart and guts out. Both of them shouting in each other's faces as if those 12 rounds of pounding the **** out of one another wasn't enough for them . What warriors, man. ****in' warriors!

So you can call Rios a ***** or a cry baby if you want, but I was seeing a guy who's just incredibly passionate about his game. No need to give him **** for it, in my opinion. He, in the interview, was just exhibiting the same hunger and competitiveness that makes us love his fights. The same **** that makes boxing so awesome to watch. He just gave it his all in rematch he was never obliged to give -- whilst entertaining us fans -- and fell ever so short of winning the world title.

So well done Mike and Brandon, and thank you once again for giving us an incredible night of boxing.

BORKED

I had no problem with it. It was kind of annoying because Rios started kind of rambling and doesn't have the most pleasant voice when amped up, but it was two guys showing respect and competitive drive.

Rios was kind of a **** to Max with the eyeball comment but he was taking his first official loss and wanted to save face by exhibiting alpha male characteristics.

True. But I loved it when they were shouting about going to each other's backyard. The fire, man. It was intense.

It was ok. I didn't think it was bad class. Hector Camacho used to do stuff like that, and it adds to the fight a little. Rios wanted to make sure he had a rematch.

They both had the upmost respect for one another, but at the same time despised each other for what they'd just gone through.

Did you watch the Box Nation broadcast? He was really ****ed off even though the interviewer was trying to praise him.

Passion is one thing, he made himself look like a jackass

He could have simply done the interview with Max, show class and get Mike to agree to a rematch.
