24/7 Rios vs Pacquiao Live HBO PPV Fight Full Action Online Coverage in Macau, China

Brando Rios vs Manny Pacquiao bout will be start at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. People who wants to watch Pacquiao Vs Rios live, you better mark this time on your calendar at exactly November 23 ET / November 24 PT together with the time schedule we have mentioned here.

This fight should tell which of these two veteran fighters should hang it up as both boxers are coming off losses with sports book odds making Pac-Man the gambling boxing odds favorite.

Mike Alvarado beat Brandon Rios with a decision in March of this year that was a great fight and within a couple points on all scorecards. On the other side, the Pac-Man is coming off uncharacteristic back to back losses. The last fight Manny Pacquiao had was when he got knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez after losing a decision to Timothy Bradley before that.

Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) vs Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs)

I think I’m with everyone in saying I hope Pacquiao takes this fight very seriously and gives Rios everything he has. I definitely don’t want to see Manny Pacquiao retire any time soon, but Rios is a quick little guy that may prevent the Pac-Man from landing those big bangs he is used to getting in on his opponents.

Brandon Rios is also an underrated counter puncher which it seems was what Marquez did well to take him out. With that in mind, Rios also seems bursting with confidence even though he is moving up to the welterweight division at 147 pounds for his first time ever when he fights Pacquiao.

Rios almost sounds excited about it remarking that he will have a better muscle tone and won’t have to kill himself. He says, “…it’s my time. I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a long time. I’ve been promised Pacquiao or Marquez for the longest time.” Rios also talked confidently about action saying, “Now, I’ve got Pacquiao, and I’m going to take this opportunity to go out and to dominate in every way that I can to come out victorious.”

Even so, the betting line has the Pac-Man at over a 4 to 1 boxing odds favorite early for the China fight in November. I am sure that heavy favorite status involves the fact that Pacquiao will definitely be ready for this fight to avoid his 3rd straight loss.

Michael Koncz is an advisor for Pacquiao and let us in on the fact that he was considering Mike Alvarado, who Rios just beat, but he went with a more in your face fighter in Rios. This promises a brawl type fight for the fans in a fight I would recommend betting boxing gambling odds of a knockout.

After he got knocked out in their fourth fight on December 8th, 2013 by Juan Manuel Marquez, he really wanted Pacquiao vs Marquez 5 but Marquez nixed that idea. I believe that Rios doesn’t have a quick enough lateral movement to avoid many shots getting landed and by the 6th round a Knockout.

Of course, we all know the next question even if Pacquiao loses and that will be everybody wondering if Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will ever happen.

Manny Pacquiao vs Brandon Rios Live Boxing HBO PPV Welterweight bout in Macau on November 24 in China.

Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios meet in a welterweight battle on HBO PPV on Saturday, November 23, the main course after a pair of Zou-flavored aperitifs and possibly the most substantial big-time boxing entrée in the region since Muhammad Ali defeated Joe Frazier in the “Thrilla in Manila.”

Similar to your opponent, you enter this fight in unfamilar position. You are coming off back to back losses, not to mention, to a fighter you've beaten in Marquez and to another some argue that you beat. How will those experiences prepare you for Rios?
Pacquiao's response in the blog:

"My two previous fights, though both officially losses, have not had a huge impact on me. Though I accept the judges' decision, I still do not understand their decision to score the fight against me when I fought Timothy Bradley. I was the aggressor throughout the fight. 

You can clearly see that by mid-fight, Bradley stopped engaging with me because he couldn't keep up with me and take the punishment I was giving him. So he decided to run from me. If there is a lesson to be learned from that fight, I guess, it's not to take anything for granted. 

I thought I won the fight then, and I still think I won that fight. If your opponent doesn't want to fight, the judges should also take that into consideration. I never felt that I lost that fight. The media and fans never considered that fight a real loss. 

"Compare those feeling to the reaction Bradley faced from the same people. He certainly did not get treated like a conquering champion. Those are his words, not mine. As for me, it did not really affect me and I was eager to move forward.

"For my fourth fight against Juan Manuel Márquez, I was determined to end our rivalry with 
finality. In training camp -- and it was one of my best camps -- I was focused on being able to 
dominate Márquez from the opening bell. 

"I trained hard in camp to attack him from all angles, and though he had his moments early in the fight, I knew I was beating him as the fight wore on. I felt the momentum coming my way, and I was hurting him badly. I could see it and feel it. 

"But I got careless. When I heard the sound that only 10 seconds remained in round 6, I 
could see he was teetering and I thought I could finish him right then or at least land one more 
major blow to give him and his trainer one more thing to think about between rounds. 

"But I was reckless...careless...in my attack, and Márquez landed the perfect shot. I watched the replay in my suite that night, and I knew that I made a major error in a fight that I should have won and was winning. But that's boxing. 

"It was an exciting fight and I have not lost any sleep over it or dwelled on it. It's the nature of the sport, and you have to accept it. I was fully prepared, and had put in my time in training camp. I didn't cut an corners.

"To prepare for Brandon Rios, I began my training camp four weeks earlier than I normally do 
-- 12 weeks total. The first six weeks were dedicated to conditioning and the last six weeks 
to boxing. It's not so much what I have learned from the Bradley and Márquez fights that is 
preparing me for my battle with Rios, it's what I have done in advance of my training camp for 
the Rios fight, and that is to rest. 

"Taking the longest break of my professional career refreshed me physically and mentally. Though I always enjoy training for a fight, I was more eager than usual for this training camp. I missed boxing. I stayed in shape by playing basketball and volleyball daily and that was refreshing, too, because it gave me a healthy diversion from boxing. 

"But now that I am finally back in the gym, I feel like the 25-year-old Manny Pacquiao. Speed, endurance, focus and power are all there. I feel like I'm gliding in the ring. Sometimes, I have to look down to see if my feet are even on the ground. I feel great. 

"It has also been the most harmonious training camp I can remember, and that has been a big factor. The biggest lesson I have learned over the past year has not come from my losses to Bradley and Márquez. It's come from being out of the ring for nearly one year. 

"I have come to appreciate boxing even more. I enjoy it now more than ever. I love it and I can't wait to return to the ring on Nov. 23 to show everyone that Manny is back and ready to compete with anyone in the sport. It's going to be an exciting fight, and I look forward to giving the fans a great show."


You've had tremendous success as a professional. You were undefeated for nearly 10 years. You enter this fight in unfamilar terrirory after falling to Alvarado. Will you prepare for this fight any differently than you always have? If so, how do you prepare so that you don't completely alter your approach as a fighter to the point that you've moved away from what made you a success?

Rios' response In the blog: 

"I’m going to fight the way I always fight. The only difference is I have to train in a 
smarter way. I can’t train to fight the way I fought with Alvarado and other fighters I have 
fought. I have to train smart, train to fight Manny Pacquiao. 

I’m going to train the same way and fight the same way, but in a smarter way, because 
I can’t change my style of fighting. I can’t change something that has got me where I am now. The way I fight is the reason I have the wins I have, the reason I have the fans I have, and the reason I’m fighting the biggest fight in my career on Nov. 23 in Macau, China.

Falling to Alvarado in Rios vs. Alvarado II didn’t affect me at all.  What affected me was 
training to the Alvarado I fought the first time at the Home Depot Center. That’s what 
affected me. I trained to fight hard, yes, but to fight the Alvarado I fought before.

When I trained for Alvarado the first time on Oct. 13, 2012, I was confident, and I was ready 
100 percent for the fight. When I trained for Alvarado second time, I would say I was over- 
confident, because I knew I had hurt him the first fight and I had already beat him. 

Therefore, I believed I could do it again. That’s where I messed up, because I didn’t really think he 
was going to change his game. I didn’t train for a different Alvarado. I honestly didn’t 
think he was going to change his routine. 

I trained for the Alvarado I had fought a few months back. That’s where I messed up. 
This fight, Pacquaio vs. Rios, it’s going to be different. I am going to train for everything. 
I am going to train for everything Manny Pacquiao is going to bring and some. 

I’m not going to assume he’s going to come into the fight like the Pacquiao that recently got 
knocked out. No, I’m training for the best Manny Pacquiao. I’m training for the elite 
fighter he is. I can never underestimate any of my opponents, because at the end of 
the day, they want the same thing I want. A win. 

Getting that win, I have to assume Pacquaio is going to come in the best shape of his life, because he’s hungry again. Manny Pacquiao wants and needs that win on Nov 23 just like I want that win. So like I said before, I’m going to train for the best Manny Pacquiao there has ever been. 

I will train hard like I always do. I will give the fans the exciting fights they love to see, and 
I’m sure Pacquiao wants the same thing. I will fight like the Brandon Rios my fans love 
to see, but like I said, I will train smarter. I will fight smarter. 

The loss to Alvarado earlier this year was a blessing in disguise,  because I lost the fight to the cards, a very close fight. On the other hand, I won something else. I won the experience, the experience to never be overconfident again. To always train for all scenarios, and that’s exactly what I am going to do.
