The article says that a fight between Rios and Acosta is being worked on. However, another article from another website confirms that a deal has already been reached and the fight will take place.

This will be a hard fight for Brandon Rios. Humberto Soto would never fight someone like Miguel Acosta. Miguel Acosta>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>David Diaz
