Manny Pacquiao vs Brandon Rios: Fight on Macau this November 2013

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KO’s) will fight Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23 KO’s) on November 24 in Macau, China, reports said Tuesday.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum gave the match a green light after his priority choices Juan Manuel Marquez and Tim Bradley decided to fight each other instead of facing Pacquiao.


Boxing analysts believe that it will be an easy fight for Pacquiao, who suffered a 6th round knockout from Marquez, because Rios just came from a 12-round unanimous decision loss to Mike Alvarado.
