Robert Garcia: Rios in Top Form, Motivated To Beat Danny Garcia

According to Robert Garcia, trainer for Brandon Rios (34-3-1, 25 KOs), we will see the very best of his fighter on Saturday night from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Rios will collide with the returning two-division world champion Danny Garcia (33-1, 19 KOs) in a WBC final welterweight eliminator.

In the co-main event, David Benavidez (19-0, 17 KOs) will make his first title defense in a rematch against top contender Ronald Gavril (18-2, 14 KOs). They first collided in September, with Benavidez winning a decision.

Both Rios and Garcia are looking for bigger and better things in the immediate future.

Garcia is back for the first time since losing a twelve round decision to Keith Thurman last March at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

After a brief separation, Rios returning to training arms of Garcia for the upcoming contest.

"For this fight Brandon has been so motivated and training so hard. He's very close to weight already and we've had more than enough rounds of sparring," Robert Garcia said.
 
"Brandon is like my little brother and he's definitely part of the family. I've always been in touch with him even when I wasn't training him. When we agreed to team up again, the promise was that he had to stay healthy and train hard and show us that he wants to be champion again. Since that day, he's been on a mission. He's doing it the right way.

Rios a huge underdog in the fight and very few expect him to make it to the finish line.

The enormous amount of doubt is fueling Rios' motivation in training camp, as he worked very hard to prove those same doubters wrong.
 
"Danny Garcia is a great two-division world champion. We expect him to be confident and I'm sure he's training hard to get a good win. Brandon is going to be motivated to give everyone a great fight. His mind set is to go out and beat Danny Garcia and that's what he's going to do," Robert Garcia said.
 
"Brandon is training hard to do what people don't believe he can do. His confidence is like never before. I see the same Brandon that we've seen in the best moments of his career."

it all depends whether Rios' been truly following Robert Garcia. Then ic can be a long nite for Danny,even though he'll win.

I can see it now, Robert pleading with Rios: "Come on Brandon, this isn't what we trained for! You have to let your hands go! You have to show me something Brandon, or I'll have to stop the fight!" :crying:

Robert is being bias. We all know rios will not be able to speak after this fight cuz he slurs his words now.
