Pacquiao vs Rios: Brandon Rios all mad at Max Kellerman and whatnot

Feng Li

Brandon Rios has thoughts about Max Kellerman. They don't make a lot of sense, but they're definitely thoughts.

Brandon Rios likes to drop "F-bombs" and he likes to talk and he likes to hear himself talk and he likes to hear himself drop F-bombs, so his latest statement to BoxingScene.com regarding his November 23 fight with Manny Pacquiao makes a lot of sense, at least in that regard.

Max Kellerman must have mentioned something about a possible Pacquiao-Ruslan Provodnikov fight.

"Fuck Max Kellerman, that motherfucker and fuck everybody that's talking about Pacquiao-Ruslan, they're already counting me out! Everybody is counting me out. Everybody thinks I'm a tune up fight for Pacquiao. So Max Kellerman thinks that too so fuck that motherucker. He's always talking shit, saying stuff in my face like ‘Oh Brandon, you're this, this and that. You've won this and that.' He's a fucking pretender. I don't give a fuck if HBO makes you say shit or not, you don't say [that type of] shit. Nobody makes me say shit but me. So at the end of the day that's fucking bullshit."

So let's try to sum this up:

  1. Fuck Max Kellerman. This is a fair enough starting point.
  2. Fuck everybody who's talking about Pacquiao-Provodnikov. I was personally unaware there was an out of control Pacquiao-Provodnikov issue, but OK.
  3. Fuck Max Kellerman (II).

I think my favorite part is when Rios starts to lose his own train of thought, and can't come up with ways that Kellerman is "always talking shit" except that Kellerman says things like, "Oh Brandon, you're this, this and that. You've won this and that." Now I have seen some shit-talking in my day, but if Kellerman is really getting up in Brandon Rios' face and saying, "Oh Brandon, you're this, this and that. You've won this and that," then I don't know how Rios has fought the urge to just flatten Kellerman on the spot. I mean, that's really out of line from Kellerman.

Mostly I can't help but read this and then imagine that "uncomfortable" face Max sometimes makes in his tuxedo when he's interviewing someone and something "unexpected" just happened.
