Thats the thing, if this was the Pac of old then Rios stands no chance. But this is the Pac that has just been put to sleep in his last fight. And he was out for minutes. There may be less than a handful of people that have been put to sleep and have had a successful career after. Rios is a puncher and can take a decent shot. He also blocks a lot of punches with his gloves and rolls with the punch. Regardless of people saying he has no defense, he does. And that is what makes this fight interesting. I am picking Rios to once again shatter that chin.Posted October 26, 2013 11:07 am
I just don’t see what Rios could bring that would win him this fight, I think Pac is gonna break this dude.Posted October 25, 2013 3:42 am
Your Mama…..I put that to the test when you said “try hitting someone on the back of the head with a pan” and amazingly it did what you said…Thanks a lot I am now on a attempted murder charge and my case COMES UP NEXT MONTH…..Posted October 25, 2013 3:03 am
Rios is a joke, he’ll get stopped in 7 rounds.Posted October 24, 2013 9:16 pm
Your Mama.., “Try hitting anybody with a pan from behind they will be knocked out.”
Depends on the pan. Depends on who’s swinging the pan. Depends on who’s getting clobbered with the pan.
Some people can sustain a heavy blow extremely well while others have egg shell heads. The Germans built a killing machine during WWII for POWs. You stood a POW in a certain spot, locked him in place, and operated a machine driven 50lb steel hammer that would smash down on his head with great force and kill him. It saved a lot of ammo.
The hammer worked on 99% of the POWs with the first strike, but some survived the first strike without even being knocked out. The record was 23 attempts. The Commandant said, “Hmm, If anybody makes it to 25 attempts escort him to the front gate and let him go.”Posted October 24, 2013 7:45 pm
the long-term plan has always been to transform Pacquiao* into an energetic and superior boxer-puncher but 1) Roach has never taught a single on of his charges how to box and 2) Pacquiao* lacks the fundamental skills, maturity, or discipline to sustain a boxing performance for 12 entire rounds. Morales was able to sustain an above-average boxing-punching peformance for 11 rounds v. Pacquiao* but still flirted with KO-disaster in the 12th and final round and that’s all it takes: one fateful punch in a single round. even if it’s the only round that a fighter wins or loses, depending on who happens to be the KO recipient.Posted October 24, 2013 6:00 pm
Actually the back of your head is generally softer than the front. But when it comes to a pan you hit a man in the back or the front of the head, there is a good chance he is going to sleep. So that is not a good example.Posted October 24, 2013 4:21 pm
The reason why you get total knock out is because you truly didnt see it coming, try hitting anybody with a pan from behind they will be knock out, but if he see the pan coming his reflex will anticipation and take a breath, pluss it’s in his brain the pain that will follow is knowed, And anticipated, look at all the great ko. All in common all say they never saw it coming, also if you are thowing a punch when you got hit and didn’t see it, you are coming into the punch and also are stiff that the worst punch you can get.
Manny Pacquiao is a warrior. He brings his best each and every time, and sometimes his willingness to please the fans gets him into trouble. Manny is a warrior. He does think about satisfying his fans. This fight against Rios will be very tough. There’s some questions that Manny still has to answer, and he will. I know there’s many people that are questioning Manny’s ring return. Can he recover from a knockout like that? What happens when he gets hit? Brandon Rios will help us get the answers. I imagine Manny will move and box for a round or so, and once he sees how slow Rios is with both hands and feet, Manny will become aggressive. He is eager to make a statement, which may not be in his best interest because Rios can take a punch and he love the trenches. Many people discount Rios, but don’t over look this fighter. Rios is slow yes, but he has tremendous deire to win and doesn’t mind getting hit. He goes to the body well and gets stronger as the fight goes on. He’s emotionally fired up because the media gives him no respect and no chance to win this fight, and that makes for a dangerous fighter. Manny will, but doesn’t have to win this fight in stunning fashion because he doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone. His legacy is sealed. Manny is always looked at under a microscope. He gets criticized for being a nice, modest, humble, caring person. We should be supportive and applaud this person. These are the qualities that we judge character with. IMO, Manny will win this fight in stunning fashion before round 9. His legs will be fresh, and he will be able to move in and out and land punches at will. I think Manny will throw more right hooks than he normally does because of the guard Rios uses, which is to have his hands up right in front of his face. And I think the right hook will create an opening for the straight left hand that will stop Rios. I also think Manny will fight in the trenches more than Freddie would like, but Manny will be very focused and weather the storms. This will be a great fight while it lasts, but Manny Pacquiao will come back and win another title after such a tough knockout. He will come back as did Roberto Duran, Lennox Lewis and Joe Louis after they were knocked out. Great fighters do great things.Posted October 24, 2013 2:51 pm
The Marquez and Martinez shots to Pacquiao and Williams made perfect contact with exceptional force. That’s rare. That does a lot of damage, like being in a car wreck.
There is generally more hemorrhaging, contusions, swelling, and intracranial pressure the longer you’re unconscious. You comeback, but even after 2 years your brain is probably still mending. Fifteen minutes after the KO you might seem fine—but you’re not. You need a long break like Pacquiao took.
Lewis had a milder experience—like the difference between a scratch and a wound. Lewis got hit with shots that knocked him out for a few seconds and he couldn’t regain his legs and full sensibilities within 10 seconds. You can never tell for sure about brain damage, but 90 days is generally enough to reverse 95% of the damage in those cases. Any bleeding or swelling is likely to be minor and your body cleans it up much faster.
That’s a rule of thumb. Every human brain is a unique organ with marginally differing recovery capacities—and the structures and neuroelectronics affected can differ somewhat with various KO shots. But generally the longer you’re out the worse it is.
I expect Pacquaio to box, box, box… throw tons jabs and straight lefts… use energetic footwork… and exercise caution to a far greater degree than normal… Somewhat like Bradley did in the Marquez fight. Tim used mobility, speed, and his jab, and avoided big shots all night.Posted October 24, 2013 1:34 pm
Pac has always gotten hit by a straight right. He has no defense and that is why he was put to sleep. There is only so many times you can take punches to your chin before it finally cracks or breaks and it finally happened with Pac. Now we have to see how he reacts to punches in a real fight. Brandon will bring it and I think he will stop Pac.Posted October 24, 2013 12:41 pm
Yeah straight to the chin with PED’s anybody will go down with that. So Rios should hire a conditioning coach. Or is it too late?Posted October 24, 2013 12:37 pm
Bradley got hit by a similar strait right (that landed on Pac) from Provodnikov in the first round of their fight. Somehow he remained conscious, and continued fighting. If that was Pac he would have been out again. From now on, everyone that fights Pacquiao will be gunning for him with the strait right, which means he’s bound to get caught again at some point. When it happens look out, cause once a chin’s dented like Pac’s was, getting hit on it again is like dejavu.Posted October 24, 2013 12:10 pm
As a matter of fact Lewis got up and they waived the fight off against McCall.Posted October 24, 2013 11:36 am
No he was not put to sleep. Yes he was knocked out but was never put to sleep. When you are put to sleep you are not moving. He was moving and trying to get up in both instances. You know who was put to sleep, Paul Williams, and Pac. They where out cold. We will see if Pac can recover from that. Roy Jones was put to sleep and you seen how he can barely take a gust of wind on his chin now. But Lewis was never put to sleep.Posted October 24, 2013 11:34 am

Pacquio is going to have to put on one helluva show if he wants to continue in the game. He needs a sensational showing, possible early stoppage or KO at the very least. I don;t know of he has anything left in him and after watching the Marquez fight over and over . He actually walked right into that punch, his guard was down and KA- POW down he went. … He will always be one of my all time favorites, A lion’s heart and a great warrior !!

Te- tumble your such a boxing retard, your homeland Marquez was watching and studying manny utubes everyday for hours, in slow motions, it’s no secrets his mad Obsession with manny been in his head for years, so its no surprise he finally caught manny good,
i don’t expect Rios to replicate “The Greater’s” DEMOLITION Job on Pacquiao*. besides, what are the chances of two(?!?) #1 KOs in Boxing History occurring in consecutive years? featuring the same victim!? the odds must be astronomical. anyway, an entire year off to clear his head has resulted in Pacquiao* coming back for more v. the biggest, strongest, and just as fierce version of Rios ever. it’s only too bad that Heredia wasn’t invited to join Rios’ camp because it wouldn’t have hurt to have an extra jolt and bolt added to his punches. he’ll simply have to make the most of a Garcia-designed fight-plan. he Knows what he’s up against and Rios will be prepared to win by KO and THAT’s what Ole Emmanuel will have to deal with. if his punches don’t discourage Rios he’s F’n TOAST on a Grill. Pacquiao* still doesn’t fight well going backwards and who isN’T going to try and time his now predictable herky-jerky darting rushes just like Marquez did? you can bet that Rios will be looking for the exact same punch on the exact same spot and who thinks that isn’t going to distract Pacquiao*? he may have no memory of being KTFO but he’s seen the video. it must have felt like his own personal “Ghost”. he’s a survivor with trauma and Rios/Garcia KNOW this. it will play to Rios’ advantage. besides, he’s not winning S**T on the scorecards and also Knows that a KO will be the ONLY way to win at Arum’s party in Pacquiao’s* backyard . . . Rios by KO . . . it’s just gotta be so and Will be so.Posted October 24, 2013 12:56 am

Rios is one of the most over-rated boxers out there.
Even at 60% Pacquaio beats him bloody, and gets a stoppage once Roach decides he has been punished enough.Posted October 23, 2013 9:51 pm
Rios has no defense he will eat up a lot of Pacmans jabs and power shots. I’m guessing 3rd round tko.Posted October 23, 2013 9:42 pm
“it was the #1 KO in Boxing History. otherwise, cite a more brutal or rivalry-ending KO?”
Te tumbo, hard to argue you with you. Marquez’s KO of Pacquiao was simply devastating. A few others: Martinez did the same thing to Williams although I don’t think Williams was out as long. Lewis put Tyson’s lights out with a straight right although he didn’t knock him out cold. Ali dropped Liston like a lead block. Rahman nailed Lewis, Pacquiao put Hatton to sleep, then there was Douglas’ KO of Tyson.
Of course the greatest KO of all time was when the doctor punched nameless’ mother in the face for giving birth to him. Not to be outdone, the nurse punched infant nameless in the face and knocked him out cold for three days. That’s why nameless squeals when he talks. And farts out his mouth.Posted October 23, 2013 9:19 pm

meanwhile, i’m looking forward to the biggest and strongest version of Rios mauling Pacquiao* for a convincing win. IMO, a one year layoff is not the preferred way of preparing to fight a determined brawler like Rios. Btw, if Garcia could teach Maidana to jab, i’m certain that he’ll be able to incorporate a similar improvement into Rios’ fight-plan. Pacquiao* may benefit from another promotional-assist with the “official” scorecards but any KO will be courtesy of Rios’ fist re-Denting Pacquiao’s* chin and jaw.Posted October 23, 2013 7:45 pm
it was the #1 KO in Boxing History. otherwise, cite a more brutal or rivalry-ending KO? you can’t. it’s like trying to identify the 5 rounds the judges scored for Pacquiao* in Marquez v. Pacquiao* I. or the 7 rounds they scored for Pacquiao* in Marquez v. Pacquiao* III. those rounds don’t exist. what is verifiable is that Pacquiao* is the producer of the Worse Choke in Boxing History and the fictim of #1 KO in Boxing History. courtesy of Juan “The Greater” Marquez. only a Pactarded* boxing-ignorant fanboy would dare insist otherwise . . . and “Anonymously”.Posted October 23, 2013 7:41 pm

Why is Rios feeling hurt that Pacquiao is so heavily favoured? Aside from Floyd, who would be given a fair chance against Pacquiao? Even with Marquez, the betting odds were poor for a Pacquiao win. Rios does have a puncher’s shot like Hatton did. It should be an action-packed fight but odds are, Rios will be the one to fall. If not…FIGHT OF THE YEAR!Posted October 23, 2013 5:00 pm
If Pac comes back like his old self with no issues from the KO then he should be able to handle Rios. But I am guessing he wont and Rios will KO him. Beating up sparring partners is much different than actual fightsPosted October 23, 2013 5:00 pm
Like I have said though, they were not put to sleep and out for several minutes. Pac was. Fighters that have actually been put to sleep like that have not been able to come back. I thought Duran was put to sleep against Hearns but he wasn’t, he was still moving around.Posted October 23, 2013 4:58 pm
Pacquiao may or may not have healed 100 percent from that KO loss. It’s only a matter of time before we all find out though, cause Manny’s going to get tagged again, and soon. And if Rios lands a good punch on the chin, Manny’s going to know it.Posted October 23, 2013 4:57 pm
Brandon should approach the fight like he does eating. Pretend Manny is a big TACO and just chow down of him like he is foods . I think this strategic method will serve him best .Posted October 23, 2013 4:56 pm
Pacquiao, mayPosted October 23, 2013 4:53 pm
If Rios shows up ripped with a six pack,he will be punished even worse. Being ripped with a six pack cant teach him how to box. Remember John Ruiz showed up ripped, well not so ripped but u know what I mean and like 20 pounds lighter when he fought Roy Jones. He actually tried to box him SMH. Pac is wreckless but he can box a bit, Rios cant box at all. A bigger Rios would help more than a ripped Rios.Posted October 23, 2013 4:48 pm
Pac’s camp claims he’s training harder than ever which is doubtful. But Rios’ strength and conditioning trainer Ariza says that unlike usual, Rios is going to show up ripped with a six pack. Interesting.Posted October 23, 2013 4:42 pm

PEEJ, I do see your point. A few that come to mind that suffered devastating knockouts and came back are Roberto Duran, Lennox Lewis, Joe Louis and Thomas Hearns. I do think Manny has the resilience to come back. Will the damage that he took in the Marquez fight hurt him? Maybe, but I believe Manny has enough resilience and durability to overcome the knockout. The time off did him good, and IMO, he will be refreshed and motivated. I do think the accumulation of punches Manny takes and will take will somehow affect him later on in his life. I hope he fight a few more times and retires for good. The brain can only handle so much. Manny by KO before round 9 in devastating fashion.Posted October 23, 2013 4:29 pm

The only thing that will stop Manny Pacquiao from beating Rios is residual damage from the Marquez KO. This fight will tell us how much of that Pacquiao has.
As far as Rios being called a punching bag, a tune-up, a pushover, or a “bum,” he is none of those things. Brandon Rios is a fine fighter, but Manny Pacquiao is on another level. Or he should be. As I already said, unless Manny is suffering from some long-term damage from his devastating KO loss to Marquez, Manny should be able to handily beat Rios.Posted October 23, 2013 4:03 pm

Am I wrong but when did RIOS get power. I mean he usually come forward and lets his face be a catchers mit…”you know the style yall seem to love” But he just breaks, wears,beats his opponent down. So why is everyone turning this guy into a power puncher who was that last guy wh knocked out. Mile High Mike in which the ref stopped it early. Im just sayingPosted October 23, 2013 4:00 pm
Manny by KO. He’s just too fast and good for Rios.
And yep, the way Rios and Margarito cruelly took-the-piss-out of Freddie’s illness showed what a pair of low life scumbags they really are. Hope Manny batters Rios over 12 rounds.

This is a great opertunity for Rios; but really what other than getting the fight did Rios win in the nagotians? Location, ring size, gloves, testing loop-holes, are all in Pacquiao’s favor. Top that off with the fact, that Brandon has never seen a punch, he didn’t want to get hit by, means the cards are heaviely stack against him. Brandon is going to need to land hard and often in order to pull this fight out.Posted October 23, 2013 2:54 pm
There are no emotions that are interfering with my pick. I am basing it off of Pacs last fight and the simple fact that there has been nobody that has been KOd like Pac was and then was successful after that. And if their is someone that has been let me know. If there is there isn’t but less than a handful. Which still doesn’t favor Pac.Posted October 23, 2013 2:37 pm
PEEJ my friend and others that think Rios will win this are mistakenly wrong. Remember not to let your emotions get the best of you when picking Rios to win, but rather be rational about this. Rios is tough as nails, has power and a tremendous will to win. Yes he was hurt against Alvarado, but kept it together, and never gave up. What you guys must understand is that Manny Pacquiao is something extraordinary. Manny has lighting speed that will baffle Rios as long as the fight lasts. Manny is the same guy that used to dismantle and punish Providnokov in sparring. Manny is motivated, focused and refuses to lose this fight. He’s the better boxer, puncher and his southpaw style that is very unique and unorthodox with have Rios stumbling all over the place. Rios throws long straight punches and works the body well. He is as slow as molasses, and he doesn’t throw the over hand right much at all. He loves the trenches, which will be his down fall. He will have no answers for anything the legendary Manny Pacquiao has. Rios is to be admired for taking this fight, but he has zero advantages, and will be stopped in brutal fashion. People, please understand the fighter that is Manny Pacquiao. There will never be another like him. His passion and desire is unmatched. Manny Pacquiao destroys Garcia, Mathhyse, Provodnikov and the rest of those guys.Posted October 23, 2013 2:31 pm
