Timothy Bradley Jr. (32-1-1, 12 KOs) is set to take on Brandon Rios (33-2-1, 24 KOs) tomorrow night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The televised portion of the card will be aired on HBO starting at 9:30pm EST, opening with a featherweight title defense by Vasyl Lomachenko (4-1, 2 KOs) against Romulo Koasicha (25-4, 15 KOs). Come visit us here this evening at 6pm EST for a stream of the live weigh-ins.
Although Rios is a considerable underdog heading into the fight, he fully expects to return to the top form he displayed when he completely dismantled Mike Alvarado back in January. Rios had much difficulty landing another fight since then, and has been more than anxious about getting back into action. Tomorrow night he'll have his chance against one of the very best welterweights in the division.
Tim Bradley, on the other hand, will be making his debut under new trainer Teddy Atlas. Many are curious to see what improvements Atlas has been able to instill in Bradley, or if Bradley will simply revert right back to his natural inclinations of slugging it out once he gets hit with some flush shots - which would favor Rios' fighting style. All answers will be revealed tomorrow night.
