Coming in at #4 is Brandon Rios–what a colorful character! Rios is a fight fan’s dream as a rugged, come-forward fighter.
Although he was a highly-regarded prospect, his reputation began to grow when he was a chief training partner of Antonio Margarito. It wasn’t for the best reasons, though. On the 24/7 series, Pacquioa-Margarito, he gained headlines for mocking Freddie Roach and his Parkinson’s.
Ever since, one would wonder if he substituted the f word for the word, the. Rios’ curse-filled attacks on his opponents are great for building a bout. However, his limitations have been exposed in recent bouts.
One can only take so much trash talk and foul language before they get turned off. Will Rios ever record another signature win? Or are his best performances in the past?
Who knows, but in the meantime, Rios will bullshit his way into another high level fight. Only, he needs to win this time around.
