The outcome of “The Clash in Cotai” Rios vs Pacquiao boxing title match for the WBO International Welterweight will have massive implications for both boxers.
If Manny Pacquiao wins he could reclaim old glory and stave of that impending retirement talk we’ve been hearing about for weeks. Pacquiao has a lot to prove with this fight; especially coming right after two consecutive loses. Most experts are also predicting a Pacquiao win with a possible late KO in those crucial last rounds.
If Brandon Rios wins this can only help solidify his position as a possible opponent for Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the future. Although, this scenario is easily not guaranteed. Rios fights with an aggressive style that seems to do him well in the earlier rounds as he has more energy to expend.
