Rios Warns John Murray: Bring Your A-Game or Go Early!

By Terence Dooley

Oxnard’s Brandon ‘Bam Bam’ Rios will attempt to add to his amazing ten fight stoppage streak this Saturday night when defending the WBA lightweight belt against Manchester’s John Murray on the undercard of Miguel Cotto versus Antonio Margarito at New York’s historic Madison Square Garden venue.

The 25-year-old champion is considered a monster at 135lbs, he has picked up inside the distance wins over Urbano Antillon, Miguel Acosta and Anthony Petersen since the last time he heard the final bell – a majority draw over Manuel Perez in 2008.

Rios has warned Murray to make sure that he is in top form or run the risk of an early night.  “If Murray hasn’t trained hard and doesn’t brings his best then he could go early,” said Rios when speaking to the Main Event Boxing Show.

“If Murray has worked hard then he could go late.  I’ve been training hard with Tony [Margarito] and am looking forward to my first fight in New York,” revealed the 28-0-1 (20) champion, who also ruled out the possibility of overlooking Murray ahead of taking on bigger names in 2012.

Check out the Main Event Boxing Show on Premier Sports, Sky freeview channel 433 from 10pm on Friday night, for the full interview.

Both Murray & Rios have a high glove guard; but it's only Rios that really makes use of the upper cuts, both like to come forward, both like to scrap it out; no boxing clinic will be seen Sat. night.…

Perfect style match-up for Rios. This is a slaughter. 3 rounds max. I hope John is getting well paid for it.
