Rios' punch resistance is on it's last legs, I'd assume.

What happened to Pacquiao-Margarito @ 150 which Margarito had a 17 pounds advantage? It will be like that but it would now be easier because Rios is smaller than Margarito.

Brawlers are made for Pacquiao.

Shit fight. Pacquiao is in a different league to Rios. What the **** has Rios done to deserve this fight?

I would prefer Rios to attempt to rule at 140 than be pushed up again because Top Rank are lacking an opponent for Pacquiao.

Good fight to watch, not a good competition but at least he fights twice a year. His fight this weekend is legit 50/50 fight, Rios may not be much of a risk but can't fault him for that.

At least let Rios beat Garcia first. TR-GBP/.

Another in-house fight for Arum. That is all he wants to do at this stage.

So, we will get some combination of Rios/Pac/JMM/Bradley in pretty much every matchup. He might throw Alvarado a payday, but that is stretching it.

absolutely pathetic fight! Rios is garbage, what did he do? beat a C level JWW who has a style tailor made for him? after losing almost every round to a LW who wasn't even in the top 15 at the time?

No matter this weekend's outcome, Arum will look to make Pacquiao-Rios and Bradley-JMM next.

Why is it that if Manny wins he fights someone tough like Rios, but if JMM wins he fights some handpicked contender who is not tough? That is what I mean, JMM either fights mediocre guys or fights for a title or fights Mayweather and Pacman. No inbetween guys like Pacman fought with Margarito and Cotto etc.
Handily outpointed current FW Champion Orlando Salido in his prime, outpointed a very competitive Barrera (ATG), knocked out #1 rated Casamayor for the first time in his first fight at Lightweight to become champion, knocked out a prime Juan Diaz for the first time to defend his Lightweight Championship, and knocked out his mandatory in Katsidis.

Welter had bigger names, JMM wasn't suited for it at the time Manny moved up, and he fought and beat the best wherever he was at.

Your "JMM isn't that good, just has a good style for Pac" argument is getting old.
