Review: 2014-08-02, great exchanges but disappointing finish: Brandon Rios vs Diego Chaves gets three stars. Brandon Rios entered this fight with a boxing record of 31-2-1 (23 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.18 welterweight in the world but he comes off two consecutive defeats: he lost the rematch against Mike Alvarado (=Rios vs Alvarado 2) and he was beat by Manny Pacquiao (=Pacquiao vs Rios).
His opponent, Diego Gabriel Chaves, has an official record of 23-1-0 (19 KOs=82%) and he entered as the No.32 in the same weight class, he suffered his only loss last year when he faced the undefeated Keith Thurman in a bout valid for the interim WBA Ww title (=Thurman vs Chaves); Chaves came back to victory in 2014 beating Juan Alberto Godoy. Rios vs Chaves is the main event of the evening. Watch the video and rate this fight!
