It’s Me, Ernie

I love the sport, but these two just beat each others brains in and I agree with some of the other posters, they will be eating their meals through a tube and be wearing diapers soom…

me- it should have been foty last year, it was a slugfest but the punches they were throwing were not wild, they were thrown with skill and as much precision as that power allows, Its a joy watching Rios pn the inside, takes two to land four kind of thing,the amount of KO shots in the fight was amazing, great fight,I don’t care who wins they are both really entertaining fighters, bring on the second helping.

I give Alvarado five rounds before Rios stops him for the second time.

still 50/50 to me whos willing to take the most punishment for the win. first fight was stopped a little early imo mike was hurt but should have been given a chance to comeback. awesome fight regardless and was still my foty last year.

Rios win or lose will go on to become a punch drunk Journeyman.. He’s already showing signs of brain damage.

Mike needs to box more and not be dragged into Rios’s fight, try get him into the championship rounds 9,10,11,12 and Rios could tire out, Rios just needs to do what he did last time.

This is a DANGEROUS fight for both fighters. Both only know how to bang and move forward. Hell, the judges may deduct points if either fighter shows some signs of defense. Exciting fight no doubt…both are crowd pleasing opponents. I dont mind the blood and guts fighters, but AT LEAST give them the appropriate time to heal between fights. Yes this a marketable fight, but IMO, a little over 5 months is no where near enough time for both fighters to fully recover from last October’s brawl, considering they have already been training for the last month and a half or so. We should get a mental health fund started NOW for these two!!!

I like Alvarado to win this fight, both guys like to trade but the reality is that Alvarado did show some boxing acumen when he did not let Rios draw him into a slugfest… Rios has taken a TON of blows for some reason I think his caste iron chin his gonna fail him this time…

This first fight was a total war and this should be the same type of brutal slug fest. I like Rios and know he’s the favorite, but I gotta root for the hometown underdog “Mile High” Mike Alvarado from Colorado. Damn I miss Denver sometimes — especially during football season. You gotta love rubber matches like this. It’s sure to be another barn burner. Can’t wait!

Rios is not so good he got a gift vs Abril, all he knows is to brawl.

Hell Yeah!!!!

*to answer my own qu it must be if its for the interim title.

This second fight between them is well worth watching but boy are these two warriors going to pay for their battles. We’ll see how much they slur, shake, and stutter when they’re 50 years old.

Cant wait, true Mike could box a little if he wanted to, but his balls are to big just like Bam Bam….

Alvarado needs to limit his time in the pocket, and not trade with Rios. If he could stick and move the first 1/2 to 3/4s of the fight I believe he could wear Rios down enough to either stop him, or make it a relatively easy fight. Unfortunately, Alvarado will likely get macho again, stand toe-to-toe too often and succumb to the bam bam of Rios.

well will that ruslan provo fight the winner?
