[QUOTE=ColWallace;12594194]I think Rios looks okay. If I recall he was struggling to shed the last 1.5-2.5 pounds for lightweight, not the last 2lb for 140. Alvarado is a little drawn as well. [B]Let's not forget this is a non-title fight…

Rios is already looking sickly! His face never lies in the prefight pics. Doubt it, but I wouldn't be shocked if he was over the limit or damn near close. Alvarado is gonna shine Saturday night! (Taking bets....Msg me!)

Rios looking like **** again imo...dude needed to jump to 147 not 140...he killed himself and only made 137....3 lbs helps but it kills u to make 140 also. No need for that garbage but oh well its boxing...hopefully its…
