Many boxing fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Brandon Rios, who has always known for putting on entertaining fights, and this showdown with Danny Garcia should be no different.
The most glaring weakness of Brandon Rios is his susceptibility to be outboxed by slick fighters who use speed and footwork to avoid exchanging punches with the hard-hitting slugger. The major question is if Danny Garcia will be able to execute a similar gameplan as Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley did in their one-sided victories over Rios.
While Garcia used evasive footwork in his win over Lucas Matthysse, he was still there to be hit and was in serious danger at many times during the fight. This is because Garcia's main offense comes from trying to land well-timed counter punches while trading with his opponent.
This means that Rios will at least have the opportunity to land some effective blows, instead of trying to chase down a speedy fighter that is working behind his jab, which gives fans of Rios a glimmer of hope that their fighter might be able to pull off an upset over Garcia, who has not fought since suffering his first career loss to Keith Thurman back in March of last year.
