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!

WTF was this BS.
I still think the Garcia club is on PEDs and I dont want to see either Rios or Chavez fight again.
I don’t see how you can say anything about this fight. Go back and lie down or get knocked down. Banish the to called fighter from the U S. He Chaves deserves it. Also check four 4 of the fight between Thurman and Chaves. I cannot see why the ref didn’t deduct a point. .
Five words: Vic Drakulich ruined this fight. I am trying to wrap my head around his reasoning (not just with the DQ).
You better get glasses if you didn’t see Chaves rubbing his head in the face of Rios. He also used his gloves in the later rounds. He was holding and the ref gave him warnings. There was excessive clinching and he also was penalized for rubbing not only gloves, but his head. This guy is dirty and should be banned from boxing in the U S
the referee is crazy!!!!
Chaves es una p*ta. He purposely put his gloves and head on the face of Rios. He goes for the eyes of Rios because he was losing the fight.
He also did that to Keith Thurman in the 4th round of their fight. That p*ta was warned about it by the ref. How he got to have so many victories and how he got them, you probably have to see his other fights. He probably got the victories by looking at the refs with those pleading eyes.You don’t need someone to dirty up the fight game.
