Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs) and Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) appeared together on the popular sports program First Take, where the boxers were hyping their anticipated fight on November 23rd at Cotai Arena in Macua, China.

Rios made it clear, in front of Pacquiao, that he was not going to be another Antonio Margarito, who took a vicious beating at the hands of Pacquiao in 2009. Pacquiao is trying to reboost his career after getting knocked out in the sixth round by Juan Manuel Marquez last December.

"I was there [when he was knocked out by Marquez], I was happy to face either one. Before the stoppage they were both hurt. He had Marquez hurt but Marquez caught him with a great shot. He jumped in and boom. I know I'll be ready. They think that I'm another Margarito. That I'm just going to come forward and take a beating. I'm younger, coming up in weight and better. Manny Pacquiao was the best but everybody gets aged at [some] point," Rios said.

[QUOTE=panicchaser]i don't think a boxer is truly tested 'til he has lost at least once. Opposition is a maker or breaker, n i believe Rios's heart is stronger now than it was with Alvarado. :[/QUOTE] Lost twice. Abril, Alvarado. No secret on how to beat Rios. But try knocking him out. That e...

[QUOTE=retnuocllup]dunno why Rios is talking sh-it about Marg... I thought they were homies[/QUOTE] He's not. He's respondin' to the question of camparison that most critics put him up against, n the reason why is because his style as of lately has been similar to Marga's. Name any other fight...

If Rios loses, I hope Margarito comes back to fight Bam Bam. ***** would be a vicious war. Would def shell out the PPV cash for it.
