    Rios probable opponent is Diego Chaves and other fight on card could be a Jessie Vargas defense. #boxing

    Could be a good fight. Rios may take a beating.

    8/2 is date for return of @Brandon_Rios1 on @HBOboxing. Could be split-site tripleheader with @KrusherKovalev from another location. #boxing

    Been waiting to see Diego Chavez fight again. This is a nice fight. They're really not giving Rios a gimme fight after two losses in a row??

    I had Chaves winning the first 3 rounds vs Thurman and I'm saying he beats Rios.

    Chaves, Manny and back to back Alvarado wars seem a bit much to me, they might should have gave him Vargas, Khabib or Demarco.

    Yup. Chavez exposed a lot of holes in Thurman's game using some pretty solid boxing technique. That is, until Thurman landed a monster left hand to the stomach that Chavez couldn't get up from.

    Rios does well against guys that are willing to trade with him

    Chaves did great against Thurman on the inside.
    He even made Thurman adjust his gameplan in order to beat him.
    I also remember him taking some of the best shots from Keith so I don't think that Rios could knock him out.
    I still think that Rios is one of the best infighters in the game right now.
    But Chaves can crack, so Rios would orgasm all night I guess...

    Toss up fight between two C-level fighters.

    This fight is going to be a slug fest and thats where Rios is most comfortable.

    This would be a real good fight if true, Chavez impressed against Thurman
