This week, former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios could be found training tirelessly as rumors of a March 3rd HBO date continue to circulate.

Rios sparred six vigorous rounds with promising junior welterweight prospect Herbert Acevedo and trained with a certain kind of reckless abandon that many pugs today lack.

Rios lost his title on the scales last month after weighing in at 135.6 pounds for his December 3rd bout with Manchester’s John Murray, a contest that Rios would win via 11th round TKO. While reports initially surfaced of a move up in weight, Rios is making an attempt to fight in the lightweight division a few more times and is now working with strength and conditioning coach Cecilio Flores, known best for his work with lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.

Rios’ efforts to stay in the lightweight division is very clear as he is after a huge showdown with Cuban marvel Yuriorkis Gamboa, who is abandoning the featherweight division in hopes of landing a big-money fight. During our conversation after his workout, Rios pointed out that he is tired of Gamboa calling for the fight and wants him to step up to the plate.

“That’s the only reason I’m staying at 135, because I want to fight that dude,” Rios stated. “So, if he’s talking all that sh!t, back it up. If I’m talking sh!t, I’m going to back it up.”

Man good fight, But Rios is makig a mistake staying at 135, That could cost him the fight!!Rios needs to go up and fight guys at 140 already. Fight Peterson or Maidana and then move up to guys like Bradely and Khan..

Gamboa vs Rios what is Top Rank waiting for this fight to mold or what man I tell you guys this they let these fights marinate two long.

Staying at 135 is a mistake. Rios has no business at this weight anymore. Should just move up to 140 and try to establish himself there.

[QUOTE=Eaner0919]I was there from Wed on and it was awful[/QUOTE] i can only imagine, brother. he looks like a different person in the weeks leading up to a LW fight. i hope for his health that he's done there. he has a good boxing base. he can tweak his style for guys at 140 with robe...

i didn't really like the idea of this fight at first and i still kind of don't. i really think bam bam should move up, fight at a more comfortable weight. moving up to 140 gets him guys like soto, morales, guerrero, alvarado, and khan. it also takes him a step closer to getting someone like ortiz...
