I got rios . It's the end of the world teddy atlas and myself agree.

Grimm says:

Same here, but not by far. As I recall Rios looked tired, outboxed and out of ideas somewhere around r5-6, when Alvarado got careless, forgot to jab, move his feet and - most of all - to protect himself. Alvarado has the tools to win, but maybe not the mentality.

ali says:

Im rooting for Rios but I got Alvarado winning by UD Rios looked bad at the weight in to me.

SouthPaul says:

Rios definitely has the appearance of looking gaunt and sucked up. I noticed it in some video even before the weigh in. Then again maybe that's just a look of a long training camp... Doing interviews ... Busy tired week. Dunno.
