He was shredded and looked very strong. Acosta's weight was identical to Rios, at 134.5-pounds. Photos by Chris Farina/Top Rank

Rios looks sucked up. I hope he gets laid out. He's got a big mouth, not respectful or humble at all.

Hope Rios gets KTFO! This kid has no dam charisma. He likes to act like he is above everyone. Karma is a beatch
