Pacquiao vs Rios video: Brandon Rios hitting the heavy bag, shadow boxing, cutting a rug

Brandon Rios is working hard in cam, but he's not forgetting to be Brandon Rios, which means he's not forgetting to have some fun.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Brandon Rios is preparing for the biggest fight of his live, as he's traveling to Macao on November 23 to face Manny Pacquiao in an HBO pay-per-view main event. Though most feel Rios has no more than a puncher's chance in the matchup, the 27-year-old brawler is training hard in the gym, has Alex Ariza as part of his team, and has been sounding very confident.

Here's Rios working out on the heavy bag and doing some shadow boxing, courtesy our colleagues at Fight Hub TV:

And if that's not enough Rios camp action, here's the slugger getting his groove on:

Both Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KO) and Rios (31-1-1, 23 KO) are coming off of losses, but the fight is still attractive largely due to the style matchup, and the fact that Manny remains a genuine superstar in the sport of boxing. And both guys lost in Fight of the Year-type battles anyway, so it's not like fans don't want to see them again.

If Rios wins, he should definitely dance.
