Brandon Rios knows that his upcoming title fight with Miguel Acosta won't be easy. One of the reasons why he is confident that will leave the ring with his hand raised is because of the sparring he received in training camp.

Rios' sparring partners ranged from lightweights to middleweights. One of the fighters that Rios sparred with is Victor Cayo (26-1) out of the Dominican Republic. The junior welterweight's only defeat was a TKO loss to the heavy handed Marcos Maidana last March.

Acosta-Rios takes place on Saturday at The Palms in Las Vegas and will be broadcast by Showtime on Saturday.
