Rios Vs Alvarado ll Set For March 30


To quote Hall of Fame baseball superstar Ernie Banks, "Let’s play two."

 

That’s exactly what undefeated former world champion Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios and top-rated contender "Mile High" Mike Alvarado will do when they face each other in a rematch of their 2012 Fight of the Year-nominated fight.

 

Rios-Alvarado II will take place, Saturday, March 30 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The 12-round WBO interim light welterweight championship rumble will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark®, beginning at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT.

 

In their first fight, last October 13, a battle of undefeated gladiators, Rios and Alvarado fought toe-to-toe and non-stop for seven thrilling rounds that saw dramatic momentum shifts throughout the action-packed bout. Two of the judges had the fight scored even before referee Pat Russell stopped the fight at 1:57 of the seventh round, awarding the TKO victory to Rios.
