don't know the juice, but I'll be taking this.  Mike slipped up last fight and kept his hands down  and got caught with some overhands rights.  I except him to make some adjustments and box and brawl at times.  i think he has a good shot at winning the fight, but am reluctant to take him because it looks like bob wants Rios vs Pacquuiao and Rios was already given a gift vs Abril.  

Plus Mike is very big and tough as nails, I'll be rooting for him.

I agree 100 percent with what you said Jersey, however I'm still throwing a little pocket change on Alvarado straight up. 3 star bet on the over, and a 1 star bet on Alvarado.

On another post, I asked what the odds were for the first fight. The real reason I asked was to better predict the over/under for this rematch fight.

Does Rios truly have a good chin? I think has has tremendous heart and balls and a fighter's mentality to never show weakness, but Rios can get rocked and buzzed just like any other fighter. Rios is looking for war. Be careful what you ask for.

You know its tripped out how I've bet against Rios 4 previous times and lost (Abril should've won though). I must say however I respect that mans tenacity. His fighting style is beginning to show in his speech though (lots of slurring and forced words). If Rios ends up fighting Marquez, Bradley, and Pacquiao after Alvarado, he'll end up like Roach and Ali.

Rios ain't a killer, HBO makes him a killer.  I've seen Acoosta rock him early in that fight bad, looked like he would stop him.  Abril took him to school and they blamed weight.  

He's a damn tough fighter, but he's severely flawed.  doesn't move his head and is slow as garbage.
