Pacquiao vs Rios live stream of final press conference

This morning at 8:30 am EST, Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios meet up in Macao for their final press conference ahead of Saturday's fight.

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

Manny Pacquiao faces Brandon Rios this Saturday night in Macao, live on HBO pay-per-view, and this morning (Wednesday, November 20) they get together for their final press conference before the fight. And you can watch right here on BLH.

Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KO) hasn't had his hand raised in two years, and hasn't fought in 11 months since a brutal knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez. Rios (31-1-1, 23 KO) also lost his last fight, a 12-round decision in a rematch with Mike Alvarado this past March.

Pacquiao, who turns 35 next month, is in something of a must-win situation. A loss here and there would be ample reason for him to hang up the gloves and focus on his family and political career in the Philippines. Rios, on the other hand, is in the familiar underdog role for this type of fight. He's expected to lose, so a loss won't really hurt his career. But he's got everything to gain, too.
