Any combination of Khan/Maidana/Rios/Guerrero/Bradley will be good.
I think Bradleys problems are more down to HBO being retarded and him having problems with his promoter for not promoting him enough.

Guerrero on the other hand is quality, and he's the one who would give Khan fits. I dont see Rios calling him out for obvious reasons
erm... no

rios' last 5 wins are pretty good for a prospect/young champ.

and to compare him to lacy is stupid, americans dont even like rios.

Khan would have his way with Rios. Rios won't as effective at a higher weight and movement gives him problems. That journeyman Lowther (spelling) was giving him a lot of trouble for a couple rounds by just flicking a jab in his face and basic movement.

He got severely leathered by Acosta for 5 full rounds and look how that turned out

If Khan decides this fight would be a chance to "prove how much of a warrior he is", I could see him getting busted up and stopped. Rios works the inside well and his work is far more accurate than Maidana.

All that said, I'm glad that Rios says he wants to stay at 135 lbs for the moment. He needs to keep learning his trade at his best weight before he steps up to 140 lbs.

Khan should stay well away from Guerrero.

Yeah me too, it's seems like Rios is like 22 and Khan is like 26, 27, just shows how well Khan has done in his young age.

i was watching rios' earlier fights yesterday on youtube, he was nowhere near how good he is now, he used to be sloppy and throw wild punches, his footwork sucked too, in one fight he got knocked down 3 times with body shots, he came back to win it but still he has improved A LOT since then.

What rios is great at is cuting that ring off he just comes stright at you and does not stop and has power in both hands, the ring would not be big enough for khan rios would KO him I have no doubts.

Khan was vary lucky he won the fight with Maidana he was lucky the ref did not stop the fight.
