Brandon Rios: Acosta, He Hurt Me Bad To The Body

By Rick Reeno

The Palms Resort and Casino, Las Vegas - Saturday's grueling lightweight bout left both of the involved boxers with some visible scars of war. Brandon Rios (27-0, 20KOs)captured the WBA lightweight title with a tenth round knockout of Miguel Acosta (28-4).

Rios advised BoxingScene.com that he broke his right hand in the contest. After the fight was over, Acosta was taken to the back, put on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital. His face was swollen and he was badly hurt as the paramedics took him away.

"He stung me a few times. He was strong. In that one round [when he stopped punching], he hurt me with a body shot. I've been hurt with a body shot before. I was dropped twice before with body shots. He hurt me to the body but I knew that I would get him," Rios told BoxingScene.com.

acosta needed to keep going to the body, that's how you stop someone as relentless as rios and other pressure fighters.

Props to Rios. it was a great fight. He hung in there and pull out the win. I like that he doesn't sugar coat anything he says. He says what he feels, even though he says some stuff that may…
