Bam Bam Brandon Rios, Maricela La Diva Cornejo, Leo Santacruz and Jose Ramirez Jr. have all participated in different events, including the Annual 5k for PADRES CONTRA EL CANCER (Parents Against Cancer), individually for years but this year, the four great fighters have decided to do something different. Instead of making individual teams, they want to unite as one to try and get more fighters, Media Outlets, Boxing Fans, Friends and Family to make ONE big team representing the sport of Boxing, the brotherhood/sisterhood of Boxing and #KOCancer together making ONE TEAM, WBC CHAMPS 4 HOPE.
Despite his very public ‘retirement’ from boxing earlier this month, Brandon Rios will be back according to trainer, Robert Garcia, who has said ‘Bam Bam’s’ decision to quit the sport ‘only lasted a week.’
Rios was comprehensively beaten by WBO 147 champ, Tim Bradley, in Las Vegas at the start of the month, getting stopped in 9 rounds after a sluggish and unconvincing performance that left many fans believing retirement was definitely the right option for the Oxnard-based brawler.
