Manny Pacquiao is set to return to the boxing ring on November 24 for the first time since suffering a brutal knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez last December. Pacquia’s return will in Macau, China, but his opponent leaves a lot to be desired. 27 year old Brandon Rios suffered the first loss of his career in late March, but he was able to turn that loss into the biggest pay day of his career by finding himself as Pacquiao’s next opponent.
Rios is exactly the type of fighter that Pacquiao wanted to see in his return and he got his wish.
The former WBA lightweight champion Rios will never shy away from action and he has shown the desire to always push forward rather than sit back and make his opponent come to him. That will play right in to Pacquiao’s wheelhouse.
Does Rios have a shot at handing Pacquiao his third-straight loss or will Pacquiao finally get back on the right track? Sound off in the comments section and share your thoughts.
