Photos: Brandon Rios, Humberto Soto - Face To Face in Tijuana

Brandon Rios says his clash with Humberto Soto is the final hurdle between him and a fourth World title fight as they clash at the Auditorio Municipal Fausto Gutierrez in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday February 23, live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.

Rios returned to action in stunning fashion in Kansas in November, stopping Ramon Alvarez in the ninth round of a pulsating contest live on DAZN.

‘Bam Bam’s’ return to the ring has been inspired by a promise made to his daughter to become a World champion once again, and a big all-Mexican clash with Soto is just the type of fight that will light a fire under him to produce a performance to land a huge fight next.

Rios and Humberto clash in an all-Mexican affair, in association with Zanfer and Paco Presents, on a huge night of action in Tijuana.
 
There’s a stacked undercard in support of the main event, led by the rematch between Jose ‘Gallito’ Quiniro (20-2-3 9KOs) and Joel Cordoba (7-4-2 1KO). The Mexicans shared a draw in a Christmas cracker in December and will return to the same venue as that clash to find a winner this time.

Alexis Espino makes his professional debut on the card, with the 19 year old Las Vegas native and decorated amateur itching to get life in the pro game underway on a proud night for his Mexican family. Diego Pacheco (1-0 1KOs) made his debut in this arena in December with a stoppage win, and the talented teen fights for the second time in the pros on Saturday.
 
A trio of unbeaten Mexicans complete the current line-up in the shape of 2016 Olympian Joselito Velasquez (7-0 6KOs), Omar ‘Pollo’ Aguilar (11-0 10KOs) and Sulem Urbina (8-0 1KO).

I mean, it's been how long since 'Bam Bam'? These guys need to drop the alias when they are No LONGER THAT FIGHTER. Geesh. Amir 'King' Khan is the worst offender. King of the local snooker club, maybe.

If he wins convincingly, I wouldn’t mind seeing Rios vs Molina ..and Figueroa vs Josesito mini series.

As I was watching the last Keith Thurman fight, Josesito Lopez was reminding me of Rios :lol1:. Lopez would come forward, stalking Thurman around the ring. Punches seemed to just bounce off Lopez's head, as he KEPT coming forward :lol1:!…

Notice these 2's records weren't posted? Soto may be getting at the end of his career, but I think he has enough left to outwit Rios. As we've seen in any step up fight lately, Rios gets annihilated. That KO…

Excellent fight. Two top P4P action fighters at the peak of their careers. Should be a fun one.
