Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KO) is on the first two-fight losing streak of his career. He lost a controversial decision to Timothy Bradley last June and was knocked out by rival Juan Manuel Marquez. The losses have led to banter about how much the eight-division champion has left in the tank.
Rios (31-1-1, 23 KO) knocked out Mike Alvarado in their first meeting, but Alvarado won the rematch by unanimous decision. "Bam Bam" has been waiting for his shot at one of the biggest names in the sport, but the loss raised questions about his ability to complete with "Pac-Man."
Former pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao, seeking to get his mojo back after being knocked out cold by rival Juan Manuel Marquez in December, will return to action to face brawler Brandon Rios this fall, Pacquiao adviser Michael Koncz told ESPN.com on Monday.The fight, the first for Filipino icon Pacquiao outside the United States since 2006, will take place at the CotaiArena at the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel in Macau, China, on Nov. 24, which is Nov. 23 in the United States.
