Bradley vs. Rios: Rejuvenated Rios plays spoiler or fabricated hype?

Brandon Rios - Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley steps in the ring with "Bam Bam" Brandon Rios Saturday night live on HBO from Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley steps in the ring with “Bam Bam” Brandon Rios Saturday night live on HBO from Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center. The hype or lack of hype heading into fight week is really no surprise. After all Floyd Mayweather just fought in sin city two months ago and in two weeks time the Mandalay Bay hosts Canelo vs. Cotto.

Unfortunately a miscommunication occurred and the end result is a pretty decent scrap in the wrong venue. The fight itself isn’t that great of a matchup at welterweight. A few years back it may have been seen as a showcase. That’s not to say this scribe won’t be excited once the bell rings, it’s just not an event the public demanded.
