Manny Pacquiao will probably face winner of Rios-Alvarado fight
Boxing promoter Bob Arum and superstar fighter Manny Pacquiao will keep a close eye on Saturday’s scheduled fight between Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado. Why? Pacquiao will more than likely fight the winner.
“The public will go crazy for that fight,” Arum told boxingscene.com. “Imagine Manny against either of these animals. … Manny will have to become an ‘animal’ himself. Absolutely. These guys will make him an animal.”
Before any of that can happen, though, Pacquiao will have to get past Juan Manuel Marquez on Dec. 8.
Rios and Alvarado are to fight this Saturday at the Home Depot Center in Carson.
