Brandon Rios: I Have To Go And Retire Manny Pacquiao

By Edward Chaykovsky

Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs) is focused on sending former eight division champion Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) into retirement on November 23rd at the Cotai Arena in Macau, China. Pacquiao has lost back to back fights coming into this contest. He lost a controversial decision to Tim Bradley in June 2012, and then in December he was knocked out cold in the sixth round of his fourth meeting with Juan Manuel Marquez. If he loses to Rios, even Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, would ask him to retire.

"We hired Alex Ariza. We've been working with him for the past few weeks now and I feel great. The weight is perfect now. Like Mikey [Garcia] said, I never had a diet plan. I used to eat whatever I wanted. Then it got bad...everybody used to see me at weigh-ins...I used to look sick. But now the weight is coming off perfect and I feel great. Now I want to prove everyone wrong, shut the haters up that say I'm just a walking punching bag for Pacquiao. I have to go in there and show a different side of Brandon. I have to go in there and send Manny Pacquiao into retirement. Marquez beat him, Bradley beat him and now it's my turn - and now it's time for him to go. Out with the old and in with the new,"  Rios said.

If indeed we are looking at the Pacman's illustrious boxing career nearing its end, one thing is sure he has for so many years made his country proud. No Filipino fighter has ever come close to what he has achieved.…
