With Brandon Rios opponent Diego Chaves finally being cleared for a visa to be able to travel and fight in Las Vegas this Saturday night, the focus shifts back to the possible war both these fighters are expected to put on.

Both Rios and Chaves have come forward styles and have power in both hands which is the perfect recipe for an all-out slugfest.

When BoxingScene spoke to Rios he was asked what he expected from Chaves on fight night considering the high expectations for this bout. While fans might expect Chaves to war, Rios expects something different.

Hes probably going to feel the power and feel the pressure and then hes going to run. Im pretty sure hes going to try to run and try to box me said Rios. But its alright. Everybody thinks that I cant fight a boxer but I can. Its just my last two fights it was different styles. Alvarado he really didnt box. He ran most of the time and Pacquiao, hes just a unique fighter.

Chaves proved hes a true slugger when he faced a similar knockout artist like himself against Keith One Time Thurman exactly a year ago. Regardless if Chaves boxes or slugs against Rios, Brandon is prepared to show the world that hes far from done.

Im going to go in there and show everybody that I still have a lot of gas in my tank and Im not done yet. Its not even half way empty, its still full. Im still young in this sport and Im ready. It just happens in my last fights I got too comfortable and I forgot what drove me there. I blame it on me and I dont blame anybody else. I got back down to earth and Im ready now Rios would tell BoxingScene.

Rios aggressive style garnered him popularity as his fights often resulted in exciting affairs and going into this fight, his mindset is no different. He only has one thing in his head going into the ring Saturday night.

Im ready to go out there and show the world that Im not done yet. So whats going on in my mind right now is war baby. The mentality of a warrior. The mentality that Im going to go in there to kill and seek blood. Thats the mentality I have right now.

Rios will try to score his first victory since 2012 and avoid losing three fights in a row. He believes this fight will put him back in the mix and prove hes still the same Bam Bam from before.

Thing is, 'fans' saying true fans don't hate Rios.. that's pure b.s. A true BOXING fan wants to see boxers, or boxer-puncher. Rios is just a brawler who had good power at 135 and 140. I don't think he has as much power at 147. So, besides being relentless, what does the guy have? I mean, 4 fights...

[QUOTE=Beercules]Rios is going to take a beating.[/QUOTE] If Chaves is fully rested, I absolutely agree with this. Hits harder and a better technician.

[QUOTE=_original_]Chaves looks decent but people are overrating him due to putting up a good fight in a losing effort against Keith Thurman, another untested fighter. So really, what has Chaves really done? I think that Rios will stop Chaves in a good back and forth fight.[/QUOTE] Whats funny th...
