Pacquiao vs Rios photo: Fighters sit down with Max Kellerman for HBO Face Off

Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios have filmed their HBO Face Off with Max Kellerman special for their November 23 fight in Macao.

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

Max Kellerman hasn't done the ol' face-to-face of Face Off yet in 2013, but now he's totally nailed one of those things with the creepy music and the black room and the slow ... sometimes ... awkward ... questioning of two ... really ... GOOD ... maybe ... great ... fighters, as the Face Off feature for Pacquiao vs Rios has been filmed.

Here's a shot from the shoot (credit: Chris Farina/Top Rank):


As you can see, Manny went with a nice yellow shirt for the encounter, whereas Rios chose another checkered long-sleeved shirt. It is possible that both came from Kohl's.

One thing I really love about Face Off that doesn't get enough credit is the backwards chairs. That lets you know this is a real rap session. This ain't no mollycoddles or pink tea, this is where some real MFs get serious about some real S. Man, Face Off is the best.
