November 7 2015 - L vs Tim Bradley
Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios
Brandon Rios aka 'Bam Bam' is a tough fighter from Lubbock, Texas, USA.
He has a remarkable record that includes a fairly high propensity to win his fights by stoppage. Notable wins include Beating Richar Abril in 2012 by a split decision to win the vacant WBA World Lightweight title, and a controversial fight against Diego Gabriel Chaves which he won by default after the opponent was disqualified for use of the elbow in 2014.
Defeat to Tim Bradley on November 7 2015 was a big disappointment.
After being stopped in the ninth round, Rios looked somewhat dejected after a sluggish display.
