I think personally people just need to accept reality & that is Rios is simply not a good boxer.
Hes a slow, face first brawler whose power and chin are vastly overrated.
Sorry but a win over Mike Alvarado, an unproven 140lb brawler who was getting schooled by Prescott until he gassed doesn't prove much to me.
He is a notch at best above John Murray. Acosta was outboxing him, John Murray gave it a damn good go despite coming off a horrendous beating & K.O loss to Mitchell. Abril shut Rios out on short notice.
He just isn't very good. In fact to be totally honest as far as I am concerned he is the biggest overachiever in boxing.
