Okay, I’ll admit it. Directly after the scorecards were read, I was screaming robbery and some other expletive’s that I probably shouldn’t say out loud. I mean come on. This is two out of the last three fights that Danny Garcia has gotten “gifted” to him after all. Then as cooler heads prevailed, I had to admit that it was a close fight, and it truly could have gone either way.

So it was when a top ten ranked welterweight in Brandon Rios(33-2-1, 24KO’s) watched some footage of Floyd sparring for his May 2nd meeting with Manny Pacquiao(57-5-2, 38KO’s), provided by Elie Seckbach of Esnewreporting.com.

After taking a one-sided beating at the hands of Manny Pacquiao in an arguably underserved fight with the Filipino star in November of 2013, former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios (33-2-1, 24 KOs) is still impressed with the skills that Pacquiao showed him in that fight.
