Review: 2012-04-14, pretty fight between Brandon Rios and Richard Abril but it is not enough to get three stars (fight ended by split decision). The undefeated Brandon Rios (29-0-1) entered as the No.2 lightweight in the world while Richard Abril (17-2-1) entered as the No.10. Rios vs Abril is valid for the interim WBA World lightweight title (Rios failed to make the lightweight limit so title not at stake for him). Watch the video!

Review: 2011-12-03, nice and tough fight ended by TKO in the eleventh round: three stars. The undefeated Brandon Rios (28-0-1) entered as the No.3 lightweight in the world while John Murray (31-1-0) entered as the No.26. Rios vs Murray is valid for the WBA World lightweight title, undercard of Cotto vs Margarito 2. Brandon Rios came from two amazing fights: Rios vs Antillon (4 stars) and Rios vs Acosta (5 stars).

Review: 2011-07-09, Brandon Rios had won his WBA World lightweight title in the previous match versus Miguel Acosta (one of the best fights of 2011) and at his first defense, against Urbano Antillon, Rios give us another great and tough fight with two knockdowns, four stars! The undefeated Brandon Rios entered the fight with a record of 27-0-1 while Urbano Antillon had a record of 28-2-0. Watch the video!
Review: 2011-02-26, exciting fight with three knockdowns between Brandon Rios and Miguel Acosta; at the moment it is the most beautiful boxing fight of 2011 and could be a candidate for Fight of the Year 2011. Miguel Acosta (28-3-2) was the holder of the WBA World lightweight title, won in 2009 against Urbano Antillon and then defended last year versus Paulus Moses (both fighting won by ko); while the undefeated Brandon Rios (26-0-1) seven years younger than Acosta, it was the first chance to became world champion. Acosta vs Rios is valid for the WBA World lightweight title. Watch the video! Read more
