Photos: Boxing's Stars Watch a War at the Mandalay Bay

By Chris Robinson

Go behind the scenes at last night's war between Mike Alvarado and Brandon Rios inside of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. In an HBO-televised thriller, Alvarado would extract revenge on Rios, winning a decision and capturing the interim WBO junior welterweight belt while also setting the stage for a trilogy bout.

Such luminaries in the building included super middleweight champion Andre Ward, WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley, junior featherweight titlist Nonito Donaire, former champion Zab Judah, heavyweight great Mike Tyson, four-division champion Juan Manuel Marquez, welterweight contender Jessie Vargas, and several others.

Timothy Bradley has made himself a name. There were plenty of empty seats when he fought Provod but after the brave showing, I think those seats will be filling.up. He made himself a fan favorite and he's earned the respect…
