ROBERT GARCIA, Rios' Trainer
 
"For this fight Brandon has been so motivated and training so hard. He's very close to weight already and we've had more than enough rounds of sparring.
 
"Brandon is like my little brother and he's definitely part of the family. I've always been in touch with him even when I wasn't training him. When we agreed to team up again, the promise was that he had to stay healthy and train hard and show us that he wants to be champion again. Since that day, he's been on a mission. He's doing it the right way.
 
"Danny Garcia is a great two-division world champion. We expect him to be confident and I'm sure he's training hard to get a good win. Brandon is going to be motivated to give everyone a great fight. His mind set is to go out and beat Danny Garcia and that's what he's going to do.
 
"Brandon is training hard to do what people don't believe he can do. His confidence is like never before. I see the same Brandon that we've seen in the best moments of his career."

Dude always looks exhausted. This is what happens when you dont take carw of yourself in between fights. You train to lose weight. Looks awful

[QUOTE=TheBigLug;18471879]Bradley would've beaten Rios 10 times out of 10 but Rios did most of the work for Bradley in that fight. Spent a whole camp starving himself and it showed in the ring. Let's be fair, Bradley would never stop…

Rios is going to retire in this fight. He will laugh off taking bombs from Garcia to prove that taking brain damage is more fun than fighting intelligently. Rios is a brain surgeons’ antichrist

[QUOTE=SUBZER0ED;18470390]Judging from how badly Bradley beat Rios, I first thought Garcia would own him. But, if he's truly dedicated himself to preparing for this fight and has the fire back, he might give Danny a war.[/QUOTE] Bradley would've beaten Rios…
