Rios is a huge guy who drains himself just to make 140, he has power, and if he fights at 147 he won't have to cut too much weight helping his stamina and he has an iron chin.
Pacman will get hit hard in this fight, the only way he can win is if he can some how upset Rios and Arum's plan backfires like Roberto Duran did to Davey Moore which Arum also promoted.
The best fight to do is a rematch with Timothy Bradley, Marquez should just retire on cloud 9.
Pacman should rematch Bradley and than Arum should try to make the Mayweather fight and cash Pacman out in September to get whatever little money is left of that fight.
Rios isn't dangerous to Pac, he gets destroyed in 4 rounds - KO'd.
