By Rick Reeno

Lightweight contender Richard Abril (17-2-1, KOs) is not looking past Brandon Rios (29-0-1, 22KOs), but he expects to win - and then he intends to move forward to a July fight with Juan Manuel Marquez.

Rios vs. Abril takes place this Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, as part of a split-site HBO/Top Rank pay-per-view. The main event, which takes place in Mexico City, will feature Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Sergey Fedchenko for the WBO's interim title at 140-pounds.

If Rios and Marquez are both victorious on Saturday night, Top Rank will attempt to match them on July 14th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Of course, Abril doesn't expect that fight to take place.

"I want to tell Brandon Rios that I'm here and I'm not afraid of him. Brandon Rios is not a real Mexican. That's why he talks so much sh*t. He's only 50% Mexican," Abril said.

"When I saw him in Los Angeles, he looked nervous. He was trying to push me at my stomach. He didn't want to push me from the chest. That fight [with Marquez] is for me. That's my date. After I beat Brandon Rios, I'll fight Marquez in July. We know what Rios is going to bring. I'm better than him and I'm going to win."

I don't think Marquez has ever even mentioned facing Rios in July. It's all Arum's hype talk.

Slow down Abril, first get through Rios.

[QUOTE=HardAss]lol i don't think even rios himself will fight marquez that day![/QUOTE]Ha I dont either. Just case Arum is hyping it up doesnt mean JMM will go for it. If JMM goes for it then we are guaranteed JMM v Pac in Nov so he can robbed again. If they win

Rios is going to knock this nobody out, then Abril will realize he made a big mistake like hes boy Gamboa, but he chickened out, and fled the country.:spank:

I am not understanding something, why did Abril say Rios is only 50% Mexican?
