 I agree Rios is going to have to bums rush Abril or he's in for a long night. Upset special. Thanks. GL.

Rios looking like TRASH, getting swept (maybe 1 round) through 6...

That was disgusting. Worst ripoff since the Funeka rim job.

I've bet Abril quite large, and he'll either get rushed out early or completely dominate and expose Rios's technical flaws. I'm expecting the latter.
 you deserved that huge payout walk, sorry about the dark side of boxing rearing it's ugly head.    Hard for me not to think promoter Top Rank's hands aren't dirty in this.  Judges can'tbe that incompetent. Abril's style big time boring, but big time effective.!

Thanks man. In the words of Paulie Malignaggi, "BOXING IS BULLSHIT!" However, I'll be back at it again next week

Hopefully they still make the JMM-Rios fight, it sure won't be as big now, JMM would almost be a lock for a win and then back to Manny for one last harrah.

It will be interesting to see how he behaves after 3-4 rounds when he realizes he can't win.against the typically slow starting Dawson. Chad in 9.     [/Quote] CHAD in his prime? Coming of a lose to Jean Pascal and a win vs a ranked 21rst in the world fighter Adria diaconu? Thats some prime, maybe he can make 3rd on dancing with the stars.

Chad's not prime, but neither is Hopkins.
