In an interview with Chris Robinson of the Examiner, lightweight star Brandon Rios says he's not interested in seeing a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto, and opines that Cotto is done, and that his stoppage win over Rios' training mate Antonio Margarito was "stupid."
Here's what Rios said about the potential Pacquiao vs Cotto rematch, and Cotto's rather lopsided and fairly uncompetitive win in December over Margarito:
"No, it doesn’t interest me. Because it kind of sucks. Cotto’s done. I think Cotto’s done. He’s looking for another payday before he can get out. Pretty much, he’s done. Manny Pacquiao’s still one of the best. He showed it."
... "You know, I thought the stoppage was stupid, because [Margarito] was doing good, I thought he was doing great. Margarito was getting him out of there. I think in the tenth round he hurt him and I think in the eleventh or twelfth I think he probably would have stopped him. That’s my thing, what I seen."
Rios is due back in the ring in the next couple of months on HBO. John Molina was a rumored opponent on March 3, but latest word is the date will be pushed back to mid-April.
