Brandon Rios on Pacquiao: I Can KO Him, I'm Going For It

By Miguel Rivera

Junior welterweight contender Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs) feels very good about his chances to give eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) his second consecutive knockout loss on November 23rd in Macao, China. Last December Pacquiao was knocked out cold in the sixth round of his fourth meeting with Juan Manuel Marquez. Rios is not focusing on Manny's last fight and expects to face the best Pacquiao possible. At the same time Rios is not taking any chances in the fight by allowing the bout to reach the judges.

"It means a lot to me, because I have waited for this opportunity for so long and finally I got it. I am excited and I will arrive well prepared. I want to go out with a big win over someone like Manny Pacquiao, who will help me take my career to a new level. Some people come back from that kind of [knockout loss], sometimes not. We'll see how Pacquiao looks. I'm training for the best Manny. We are ready for the guy who beat everyone and dominated the division. I don't care about Pacquiao's knockout loss. Honestly, I think I can knock him out, I have that kind of power in my hands. I feel stronger in this division and I'm ready to show my power. I'm going for the knockout," Rios told Erika Montoya.

Unless Pacquiao has suddenly transformed into a post Tarver Roy Jones he's going to turn Rios into a human Pinata.

I hope Paquie gets knocked the F out from yet another light weight cherry pick gone wrong.

Well, let's hope both Rios and Pac are "drawn into a war". Isnt that what we want to see? Of course, yes, I personally want to see that. But I also fear Rios will remain a still-footed punching bag for…

it took marquez 38 rounds to land that KO punch, unless Pac got shot from that last fight which I doubt, we will see come fight night what's the deal...
