De Leon: Brandon Rios is Hitting Hard, Very Explosive

Macau -  Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios put the heat on his sparring partner today, moving forward and blasting hard hooks, particuarly to the body on Thursday at the Venetian Macau.

"Rios was explosive today," said Erick De Leon, the former U.S. National champion who went six rounds of heavy sparring.

"On November 23, sooner or later in the ring, (Manny) Pacquiao is going to have to engage. When that happens Rios is going to unload the way he did against me today."

Rios had a four hour workout, starting with sparring six rounds, doing the mitts with chief trainer Robert Garcia six rounds, striking the heavy bag, doing floor exercises and then remaining to do "fitness exercising" with his trainers.

After the third hour, Rios turned to Garcia and said "what's next?"

"We keep working, Brandon. This is how we are going to beat Pacquiao," Garcia said.

Who's the biggest puncher Rios has been in with? Has he ever experienced anything like the heavy-handedness Pacquiao will bring?
