Koncz: If Pacquiao Follows Plan, Rios Gets KO'd in Five

Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) believes the best way to bring inspiration and hope to the victims of the devastating Typhoon Haiyan in his native Philippines is to win his comeback fight against Brandon Rios on November 23rd in Macau, China. Pacquiao returns from back to back defeats to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez, and a near one year layoff after suffering the sixth round knockout to Marquez.

"Manny's desire was to go to that area and to visit them and lift the spirits," said adviser Michael Koncz said. "But we have the most important fight of his career. It's been one of the best camps I can remember. No tensions within - everyone dedicated to our jobs and working hard. Manny's in the best physical condition he can be in. His mindset is on showing the world he can still compete to the highest level."

"The fans are going to be in for a fight, for a treat. If Manny sticks to the game plan, I truly don't believe the fight is going to go more than four or five rounds. He's determined to show the world nothing has declined in his skills and abilities. He's very motivated for this fight."

[QUOTE=jrrod02;13926240]I could see a TKO, but late in the fight. I'm interested to see how Pacquiao comes to the fight without Ariza in his corner. Will he have the same amazing stamina he did when he had Ariza with him?[/QUOTE]…

Manny fan here but I honestly don't see PAC knocking rios out, if anything PAC will get a late tko. If PAC wins it's going to be a decision or tko and if rios wins it's gonna be by ko.…
