The November 23rd pay per view fight between Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KO’s) and Brandon Rios (31-1-1 23 KO’s) will be having an HBO 24/7 series starting on November 9th, according to Steve Kim. No word how many episodes HBO will be showing for Pacquiao/Rios, but you have to figure it’s going to be at least three with the dates being November 9th, 16th and 22nd.
The fight will be staged at the Cotai Arena, Venetian Resort, Macao, Macao S.A.R., China. This is part of Top Rank’s efforts to open up China for their boxing cards. There’s still talk that Zou Shiming (2-0) will be in the co-feature bout.
If so, Bob Arum will have to try and find some other fighters to load up the undercard, because Shiming isn’t going to be a huge help in selling the Pacquiao-Rios fight on PPV to American fans.
