I suggest: Rios-Alvarado!


PhilBoxing.com




MP-MT. PLEASANT, SC – Explosives are set to explode this Saturday! In their first 10 fights, Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios KO’d 7 opponents while Mike 'Mile High' Alvarado stopped 9 of his first 10 opponents.

Rios vs. Alvarado the Boxing after Dark co-main event this Saturday is a must see fight for boxing fans who want to see a brawl. I likened these boxers to a car that has no reverse gears. To think both are power punchers, it must be a coalition.

Rios (30W-22Kos-0L) is moving up from 135 lbs to 140 lbs. He is leaving his WBA lightweight belt. His last outing with Richard Abril was a questionable win where he escaped via split decision. In an interview, Rios told eastsideboxing.com that he wanted to make a history on Oct. 13. And the way this match-up looked like, I’m campaigning everyone to glue their eyes on Saturday’s HBO’s boxing after dark opener. Guaranteed its gonna be a 4TH of July in October!

Mile High Alvarado of Colorado is 33W-23KOs-0L. He stopped Breidis Prescott, the same Prescott who crashed Amir Khan in just one round. If Brandon Rios wants a dancing partner, this could be it. Alvarado is a perfect opponent for the more popular Rios. Alvarado was campaigning for a Juan Manuel Marquez fight but he was told that he was a very high risk and low reward for Marquez. That is an indication that this Alvarado is a legit fighter that can entertain purebred boxing addicts.

I can’t wait, come Saturday, Oct. 13 make sure you clear your schedules on the evening. If you like to watch UFC 153 that’s a good thing too, you can’t go wrong with Anderson Silva, that’s for sure. But make sure you record the Rios-Alvarado fight! Anticipate an all action fight like a Gatti-Ward, a rare fight.


Oh!BeerTime…

Salute to my friend Salven Judge Lagumbay for scoring 114-114 on Melindo fight… I would say my dark horse in the west is Minnesota Timberwolves, I like the Russian injection in the line up and a healthy Rubio and the Love… and in the east I’ll pick the Milwaukee Bucks, Jennings / Ellis will be better this year, probably the fastest backcourt in the NBA… T-Mac to china, is he gonna be the best player in the league, how about Stephon?... if we graph Manny’s performance in his last 5 fights, against Clottey = 8.5, Margarito= 8.5, Mosley = 7.0, Marquez = 6.5, Bradley = 6.0… graph is pointing down!... Manny’s 10s are Morales’, Marquez I, DelaHoya’s, Hatton’s, Cotto’s, Barrera’s these were before politics came in when he was still hungry… What else? Nishioka should bring the fight to deeper rounds and aim the body, survive the first 5 rounds and make it an ugly/rough fight!... Joseph Arman is 1 month right now Oct.11… KUMBATEA!
