Brandon Rios: Nobody Can Beat Mayweather, Too Good

By Chris Robinson

Less than a week removed from his commanding unanimous decision victory over Robert Guerrero, Floyd Mayweather still has the boxing world abuzz over his latest showcase.

Inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mayweather outclassed Guerrero with a brilliant blend of speed, pinpoint-punching, and agility that beguiled his 36 year of age.

Watching the fight from his bases in Oxnard, California, former lightweight titlist Brandon Rios couldn’t help but to take notice.

“Floyd’s still unbelievable,” said, Rios, who is in the headlines himself because of his recently-announced November 24th duel with Manny Pacquiao.

“He’s untouchable. I don’t think nobody can beat that guy. He’s just too good.”

Asked to elaborate on what makes Mayweather so special, Rios seemed almost at a loss for words.

“I don’t know,” Rios said. “Just natural talent. He was born as a fighter. Floyd’s just bad*ss. That’s all I can say.”

Guerrero’s spirits were high heading into the fight but as the contest transpired, he seemed to lack a solid game plan that would allow him to track down the elusive Mayweather.

Rios did expect more fortitude from Guerrero but revealed why he may have fought the way he did.

“Honestly, I thought Robert Guerrero was going to come out and be more aggressive,” Rios admitted. “At least he could have said he got knocked out by the best. I thought he was going to be a little more aggressive.

“But it’s frustration,” Rios continued. “When you get frustrated, your mind doesn’t see the same or concentrate the same. You don’t do the same punches that you planned. When you get frustrated, you’re f*cked, pretty much.”

During the lead up to the event, there was a lot of talk coming from Guerrero’s outspoken father Ruben, who also serves as his trainer. With his emotions running high due to a pre-fight war of words with Mayweather’s father and trainer Floyd Sr., the elder Guerrero left the media with several sound bites over the weeks.

Asked if seeing his son beaten so convincingly would perhaps cause Ruben to settle down, Rios seemed to disagree.

“No, why would he be more humble now?” Rios asked. “Maybe that’s the way his Dad is. You can’t take away who people are. I talk still talk a lot of sh*t, even after my loss. I still talk sh*t and that’s who I am.”

Rios should have never said that, because now all the Pacfans are gonna hope and pray Pacquiao beats him into a coma for supporting the demon that is Mayweather.
