Rios: Pacquiao Picked Me Because I Lost, Big Mistake!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Junior welterweight contender Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs) says eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) made a big mistake in selecting him as a comeback opponent. The match is scheduled for November 23rd in Macau, China.

Rios believes Pacquiao selected him because of his last fight, a twelve round decision loss to Mike Alvarado. Pacquiao comes back from a brutal knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez last December.

“He picked me because I lost. They probably think. ‘Brandon is easy to hit. Brandon gets hit all the time.’ (But) it’s a very different story when you get in the ring with me. I’ve been waiting for this fight all my life. They made a mistake picking me,” Rios told Ron Borges.

“This is my chance to show what I can do with a great fighter in front of me. I gotta come out in a smarter way. I’ve got to fight different than I usually do because Pacquiao can hurt you. He’s got a good knockout percentage. When I’m inside the pocket (at close quarters), that’s my game. I can fight very well. I’ve proven it.”

Manny *should* annihilate Rios. Should. But Rios can be dangerous. Especially after that brutal KO Manny is just coming off of. It's not a gimme. Pac will have to earn it. If he loses, career ova
