Photos: Angel Heredia Joins Team Brandon Rios in Vegas

By Chris Robinson

A subplot was added to this weekend’s Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado rematch when it was reported by Franciso Salazar that strength and conditioning coach Angel ‘Memo’ Heredia had become a part of Rios’ camp.

Heredia’s notoriety comes from his involvement with Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez, as well as his history of having supplied performance-enhancing drugs to Olympic sprinter Marion Jones and others.

Prior to the final pre-fight press conference for this weekend’s event, I was able to get a shot of Heredia with Rios and his trainer Robert Garcia.
Rios-Alvarado II takes place this Saturday night from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. HBO will televise the proceedings.
