Mike Tyson: Normally, Rios is Made For Manny Pacquiao

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson recently discussed the upcoming welterweight fight between Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) and Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs), taking place on November 23rd at the Cotai Arena in Macau, China. During an interview with Jim Lampley, Tyson gave his thoughts on Pacquiao's ability to recover from the sixth round knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez, and how the loss will affect his performance against Rios.

"I think Manny Pacquiao still has a couple of years still in him. He took a sensational loss, but it's all psychological [on how he deals with it]. If he took it really bad psychologically, because of the loss to Marquez, then we have a problem. But if he took it as just a bad day at the office, then he can still make a lot of noise in boxing. [This fight depends] on the psychological condition that Pacquiao is in," Tyson said.

"Rios is just a game fighter. When Pacquiao was at the top his game, he had so much movement, so much lateral movement and a guy like this is absolutely made for Pacquiao. Normally a guy like this is made for Pacquiao. Rios has a lot of spirit and comes across as a warrior when he fights. It's truly going to be an exciting fight."
