Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs)†expects to have most of the physical advantages when he steps in the ring with eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) on November 23rd in Macau, China. Rios is moving to to 147-pounds to take the fight, a quick move after recently jumping to junior welterweight two fights ago. But Pacquiao is a small welterweight and rarely weighs in at the fulll welterweight limit.

"Definitely I think thatís gonna be one of the big things too because I am way bigger than Pacquiao and yes Iím gonna be comfortable fighting at 147 lbs I know I was supposed to fight at 140 but the last 2-3 pounds is not gonna kill me, it wonít be a factor, so 147 is gonna be a great opportunity for me, Iím gonna feel very strong at 147 lbs. My walking around weight is at 155 so itís not gonna be hard to make 147. Iím probably about 159-160 right now," Rios told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Although Rios is going up to 147, he doesn'te expect to be too much bigger on the night of the fight. He says a weight of 150 will likely be the most he packs on before he enters the ring.

"Honestly I donít really know to tell you the truth, probably around 150 lbs, every time the next day I never go higher than 150 lbs but I know Iím just gonna be an animal when itís time to fight. Iím always confident but after the next day I think Iím gonna feel even better because I usually make 140 lbs but I have to suck up too much. I donít have to kill myself so the next day Iím gonna be even stronger. Iím gonna be really, really strong," Rios said.

cant wait to see how Pacquiao looks in this fight. I think Pac will win but Rios has a very good chance if he trains right

i don't think weight can be a factor for rios...a fighter who stand toe-to-toe with pacquiao will rest on the canvass for sure...if rios will not use his feet, he's in for a disaster...jmm's face was busted when he goes toe-to-toe with pac and wait to get knocked out...until that lucky punch... ...

Rios is a brave cat. Too brave for his own good, I believe. He's 27 and you can see he's already beginning to stutter. I respect his heart and will, but let's be honest. Not only he can't box, he also shows limited head movement, his footwork is a little more than a basic come straight for...
