On October 13th Brandon Rios (30-0-1) and Mike Alvarado (33-0) square off in a fight fan's dream match up.  The fight between the two Mexican-American all action fighters takes place at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. and will be televised by HBO.
 
Alvarado paid a visit to this week's edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show to talk about the upcoming fight. He also told us that a large contingent of fans plan on making the trip from Denver to Southern California.

"This is a fight people can't miss. People don't want to miss it. I'm bringing Denver (with me). 303 is going to be all over the Home Depot Center.  He will have his fans there and I will have mine there too," Alvarado stated. The Denver, Colo. native gives Rios credit for taking the fight and spoke highly of his future opponent.

"I have nothing against Brandon. He's a good fighter. I respect him for taking  the fight. This fight shows what you can do against top competition.  He agreed to fight me and I don't avoid any fighters," Alvarado told us on The Boxing Lab.

October 13th also marks Alvarado's HBO debut.  He believes it will be his coming out party and thinks that Rios style plays into his hands. Alvarado also said that he thinks his size advantage will be a key factor in the fight's outcome.

"It made me more motivated. This gives me a chance to really showcase my skills. I'm still learning and growing as a fighter. I believe that he is tailor made for me. He will come right at me which is perfect."

"Weight is a key factor. He won't be able to bully me like he is used to doing. I am going to be bigger and stronger plus I have my boxing skills. Some of which I haven't used in a while that I will be able to use," Alvarado revealed.
