Rios workout quotes


Former world champion BRANDON "Bam Bam" RIOS (31-1-1, 22 KOs), of Oxnard, Calif., and reigning Trainer of the Year ROBERT GARCIA hosted their only U.S. Media Workout today at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard.

 

KEVIN HART, who stars as a savvy boxing promoter in the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures movie "Grudge Match," was also in attendance.

Rios is in deep training for his eagerly-anticipated welterweight collision with Fighter of the Decade, Congressman MANNY "Pacman" PACQUIAO (54-5-2, 38 KOs). Rios departs for Macau on November 11 to acclimate to the environment.


BRANDON RIOS

"I am going to China to win. I am going to wear down Pacquiao like I do all of my opponents. If I get a knockout, good. I am physically strong and I am going to take it to him.

"My team - Robert Garcia and Cameron Dunkin - believes in me. They have from the beginning. my dad, Manuel, has always believed in me and he’s going to China with me.

"Let Freddie Roach know I am a man, I come for the win, the kill. Tell Freddie that - I want him to know.

"I am in the prime of my career, not like Pacquiao

"I will be ready for Pacquiao. I have two smart men in my corner - Robert and his father."

ROBERT GARCIA

"We’ve been training three months and Brandon has better footwork, head movement, and hand speed.

"We are preparing to face the Manny Pacquiao who was so dominant a few years ago. We have a game plan to win this fight. Brandon is fully prepared and has the mental toughness to break down and beat Manny."

KEVIN HART

"I plan to order the Pacquiao - Rios HBO Pay-Per-View seven times on November 23. I want to make sure I won’t miss it."
