The Howling: Brandon Rios TKO10 Miguel Acosta

Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios lived up to his nickname by rallying from a slow start to clawhammer Miguel Acosta in the 10th round of a vicious firefight at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rios, 134 1/2, charged Acosta from bell to bell with limited success early on, but he eventually caught up to his frail opponent and scored the kind of stoppage that simultaneously thrills and disturbs.

A Little Rain for Bam Bam: Miguel Acosta-Brandon Rios Preview

Brandon Rios will be looking to ride his momentum from his eye-opening performance against Anthony Peterson when he faces slick Venezuelan Miguel Acosta Saturday night on Showtime. Rios, 26-0-1, is a 24-year-old banger who surprised many by thrashing the more well-known Peterson last year on HBO. It was thought that the younger brother of Lamont Peterson had the polish to make Rios look bad. Rios knocked that polish right off with punishing left hooks to both the body and head.

Rios to fight Lowther on Pacquiao-Margarito undercard

According to Richard Cloutier, the newly opened televised slot on the Pacquiao-Margarito undercard will be filled by a bout between Brandon Rios and Omri Lowther. The spot became vacant when Kelly Pavlik pulled out with an injury. Yes, this is short notice, but this is a much worse opponent than even I would have expected and adds zero to the undercard. His last time out, Lowther was dominated by Hank Lundy in a fight that Lundy took on four days' notice. Expect to hear Rios's signature grito sometime before the scheduled fourth round.
