Nothing can stop Manny from his come back and so Arum's "rehabilitation" program started by pitting Rios. It's a wise choice, I would do the same if I'm a promoter. However, knowing Manny's habbit of opening up while throwing punches and making feigns Rios could still sneak in strong punches that could repeat the fate that Manny suffered from Marquez. It's that one punch that could spell another lullaby for Manny.

Of course Manny will be careful this time and try to do things right. It's certain but could he learn from his mistakes? Based from his previous losses he can. However of all those losses it was his recent loss to Marquez that is too humiliating. Personally, I don't want Manny to engage in boxing again for physical and mental health reason. But he made his choice. I'm just hoping he'll fight more like any other vintage fighters who defies age by being clever and tricky like hopkins, Marquez, and Floyd. Most importantly I hope he could eradicate all his distractions.

Good luck Manny...

People criticize Manny for fighting Rios instead of Alvarado but they don't know that Rios is a very dangerous opponent he has the power and most importantly, heart. Rios can knock him out if he come unprepared physically and mentally.

What makes it a wise choice, business wise, is its being a dangerous fight for him.

On the other hand, it is not a wise choice because this fight should be a comeback fight for Manny which should ensure a high probability of Manny winning the fight by fighting a less dangerous opponent. We don't want to see him going to the canvas again, do we?

This is not an easy fight. Do you guys remember when he fought Cotto and Margarito? Manny could hardly stand up doing interviews. Someone was close to him and he was leaning the whole time after the Margarito fight. Those type of fighters does a lot of damage to their foes and thats why Mayweather never fought margarito.

If Floyd lose a fight you can expect him fight Judah again for his come back fight.....Pacquiao is different level of a fighter then Floyd, we are talking about great boxer here, so Rios is "ok" for Pacquiao's comeback fight.

So I see Floyd is not great and Manny Pacquiao is.

Rios is a very dangerous fighter when you fight him the way he fights, like slugging and brawling.

Everyone is dangerous ... so long as fear doesn't overcome them - like Clottey or Mosley. Margarito had no fear, and almost flattened Pacman with one shot to the side, but of course Pacman was faster.

Rios vs Pacman would be like Margarito vs Pacman, IMHO. Rios doesn't have the defense of Cotto, so he will either be charging or covering up. I think he will go forward, so it's gonna be great ! I really expect a KO from Pacman, assuming Pacman is his old self of course.

hmm a very humble rios we are seeing at this point.
:lol:

Rios was inside of the MGM Grand for Pacquiao’s loss and was asked to give his personal take of the action.

“Manny Pacquiao fought the best counterpuncher in the business and they fought three times before that,” stated Rios. “Marquez knew what would do [well] against him. Marquez knew him very well and studied him and he knew that right hand would get him. That’s what happened. He just countered and got him with the right hand.”

Don’t expect any overconfidence to be coming from Rios, however, as he insists that Pacquiao will know how to regroup accordingly for their battle.

“Honestly, no, because he’s a veteran,” Rios claimed. “He knows what to do. He’s been in this position before. Like I said, he just got caught by a great counter-puncher, and you know, you can’t just go off of one judgment of him getting knocked out and that he’s not the same no more. A lot of fighters get dropped or knocked out and they come back and they look better with the better performance.

“Maybe Manny Pacquiao needed time off and look, it might do him good,” Rios added. “I know I’ll be ready 100% and I’m just very glad and thanks to him and his people for selecting me as an opponent.”

So I see Floyd is not great and Manny Pacquiao is.


You nailed it kuya!

IMHO I think Floyd is an ok fighter, a very good boxer just not great as what the American media would say in front of your face even if its clear as daylight he is not. Let's add the few gullible FILIPINO WRITERS who also buys the "Floyd" they were trying to portray to people. Even Floyd himself, deep down he knows he's not great coz if he do you wont here anyone saying he's a ducker.Theres obvious reason why he choose his opponents very carefully.
Floyd denied Manny's ticket to top 3 all time greats by ducking him and I hate him for doing that! :verymad: Imagine if this guy had the balls to fight Manny back in '10? you know what I mean?..
