Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado Verbal Agreement Reached

By Ernest Gabion

Multiple sources have advised BoxingScene.com that Brandon Rios (30-0-1, 22KOs) and Mike Alvarado (33-0, 23KOs) have verbally agreed to face each other on October 13th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The contracts have yet to be signed, but both fighters want it to happen. IBF/WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire will defend his titles in the second portion of the televised doubleheader.

Rios' trainer, Robert Garcia, believes his fighter will win by knockout.

"It's a great fight, it's the fight Brandon has been waiting for," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.

Rios is moving up to 140-pounds after winning a controversial twelve round decision over Richard Abril in April. Rios failed to make weight for the fight and looked physically spent in the days leading up to the official weigh-in. In Alvarado he faces one of the most dangerous and most avoided fighters at 140-pounds.

Very good fight, can't wait for this, lots of action. Just hope Rios makes the weight like he should, now no excuses. I Pick Rios in a late round K.O. but, you never knew, Alarado can fight a rough fight…

[QUOTE=QballLobo;12402716]Would Robert Garcia work the corners for both Rios and Donaire on the same night? It seems like that would be a bit risky to have two of your main guys training at the same time and both fighting on…
