The image of an unconscious Manny Pacquiao falling face-first to the canvas is one most of us will never forget.

Brandon Rios remembers it vividly, too, but the former WBA lightweight champion hasnt allowed it to affect preparation for his Nov. 23 welterweight fight against Pacquiao. Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) expects to encounter a prime Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) in Macau, China, even though the Filipino superstar hasnt boxed since Mexican nemesis Juan Manuel Marquez knocked him out with one punch in the sixth round of their Dec. 8 welterweight bout in Las Vegas.

Im expecting the Pacquiao that was dominating the game, Rios said Tuesday on a conference call to promote their HBO Pay-Per-View main event. Thats the guy Im ready for. Im not looking at his last fight, when he got knocked out by Marquez. That could happen to anybody. It could happen to me.

So we cannot go into this saying, Oh, Pacquiaos done. Hes old overnight, and this and that. No, Im not looking at it like that. Im looking at the Pacquiao that was dominating the game. So Im getting in the best shape I can get and Ill be ready mentally and physically for this fight. And if he starts out slow, great. That even gives me more chance to warm up. If he starts out fast, great. That means Ive got to warm up faster. So were good.

[QUOTE=Check_hooks]Pacquiao ain't washed up, Pacquiao was beating JMM ass. He had a broken nose and couldn't breathe. Pacquiao went for the kill and got KO by a roided JMM. If Rios wants to win than he needs to prepare like hes fighting the Pacquiao that fought Morales, Barrera, and Cotto[/QU...

[QUOTE=Big Dunn]don't let the Hectari's, ifc9titles, and buboys of the world fool you Rios. Manny isn't washed up. Plan on getting your ass beat badly.[/QUOTE] ^^^ The "system" doesn't allow me to give a "green" to Big Dunn.

Obviously he should prepare for the best Pacquiao, but he needs the worst to show up in the ring.
