On Monday, sources confirmed that Manny Pacquiao reached an agreement to fight Brandon Rios on Nov. 23, in Macau, China.
Rios is a curious choice for Pacquiao’s return. Not a safe one. The Mexican slugger loves to turn a boxing fight into a war and it could prove dangerous for Pacquiao, who was the victim of one of the most devastating knockouts in boxing history last December.
Just one year ago, Pacquiao was arguably considered the best fighter in the world. Then he lost two consecutive fights.
Rios prides himself on making an exciting fight and will apply constant pressure.
How will Manny react and what does he have to gain in victory? For Manny, the Rios fight is not about pride. It’s about returning to the top.
Read on to see if Pacquiao has more to gain or more to lose by fighting Brandon Rios!
