Default Mitchell v Rios... Anyone thinking that Kevin

Could do a number on Rios? And i mean, REALLY put it on Brandon?

Rios is there for the taking, imo.

Mitchell should push for this fight.

I think it would be a fantastic fight, hard one to call but I'd side with Michell.

Rios up at 140 lbs now and would batter Kev.

Mitchell stands little chance against Rios

No he wouldn't as his defence is shit. He is so open for hooks which are Rios favourite shots. Burns would beat Rios though at 135lbs.

Naturally.

Which is the better fighter? Well prepared Mitchell, Montreal Duran or Tokyo Douglas?

dont worry dude. i get it all the time, im not blinded by the american hype train that rios rides with the top rank banner waving, Abril did a number on Rios, all rios has is power he lunges forward with his head down swinging. I had been saying for ages that i guy with good boxing skills would school and frustrate rios and Abril did just that, his defence was neat to which was what annoyed Rios even more.
Mitchell`s a boxer too , if Prescott can beat Abril and Mitchell beats Prescott then why shouldnt kev have a chance against Rios????( yes i know styles make fights but my point does have its merit) Why couldnt mitchell`s stiff jab and left hook give Rios trouble who lunges forward??? I think Rios coming forward as he does will end up with an left uppercut from Mitchell whilst on the back foot.

He'd still batter Kevin. Mitchell's just not that good.

Because Mitchell is too small, too easy to back up, and takes too many shots. Prescott was nothing special either, always remember that.
