Exclamation Can MANNY PACQUIAO Knock Out BRANDON RIOS (?)

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftwD3n-2Om0[/ame]


In an interview a year ago, Brandon Rios admitted that Pacquiao would beat him - this is a stunning admission given Bam Bam's Mexican pride/heritage/balls.

Not really. Despite coming across as a dick sometimes, he's a pretty honest person.

Don't no or care if can or can't. I would like to know if he could knock out Floyd. Now that's a question worth asking.

According to Floyd...PAC would put him in a coma so no money is even worth Floyds life.

Yes, he hits hard and Brandon wouldn't spoil his accuracy.

No...

Pacquiao could deform his face though...

Pacquiao is no longer the fighter we knew back from 2008/2009.

Bradley didn't get knocked out due to a solid chin, decent defense and moving back for the whole fight.

Rios has the chin.. defense? questionable.. will he move back? nope...

I can see Rios being stopped due to a culmation of punches like Cotto rather than a one punch KO like Hatton was.

just like pac vs margarito but rios will get knocked out. Reason why Pac couldn't knock out margarito was because of his size and height. Rios is a short version of margarito.

Paquiaos punches would be faster cleaner and harder than Alvarados....he would break Rios down and knock him out.

Could be stopped due to injuries... broken eyeball socket, broken jaw, multiple cuts, etc.

The pacquiao of recent hasn't looked great. But Rios is tailor made for the style pac likes so it could show how much pac has left. But Rios does have a good chin like margarito.
I think there is a good chance pac can do it and it may even wake up the pacquiao of old or at least make it look that way

Pacman might break his hands cracking Bam Bam's chin, but Pacman can land some nasty bodyshots like he did on occasion making Margarito and Mosley fold over at times. Actually if Pacman landed those same shots on Rios a stoppage is more likely. Rios has alligator skin tho for being a face first brawler he doesnt cut so easily.

He hasn't looked great because he hasn't been fighting guys who allow him to. He'd look great against Rios because Rios would be there to be hit over and over and over again.
