Prediction,

Good match up.

It is good to see Rios fighting again, I can see why people want him to retire, he's past his prime, and that was a brutal stoppage loss to Garcia in February, but in that fight, he proved he wasn't the shot fighter he looked like against Tim Bradley. Rios is a good fighter, at his best, he was a world champion, defended a couple of times, had a good trilogy against Mike Alvarado, but when he fought Pacquiao, Bradley, and in the end, Garcia, he isn't that good, and he has become more of an entertaining fighter who you know will always make it a good fight, rather than being good. Rios, against Alvarado the third time, turned a corner, was doing great, I don't know why his training for the Bradley fight was so poor, but that was an awful night for him, he was much better when he was training hard, with Funez, made a statement against Aaron Herrera, decided to go back to Robert Garcia, had a great camp for the Garcia fight, did well, was better than he was against Bradley.

Ramon Alvarez is not his brother, he is not world level, but he is very experienced, isn't a bum at all, is good at a certain level. Alvarez has 6 losses, been stopped twice, mots recently last year, against Omar Chavez (just before Saul Alvarez beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr), he was stopped in 2010, against Daniel Sandoval, but there is no record on BoxRec of him being dropped. Alvarez lost a split decision to Antonio Margarito in 2016, and he has a few isolated decision losses in 2012 and earlier, but he has 27 wins, is coming off 3 wins in a row, drew with Johnny Navarrete, and then beat him in the rematch, and since then, has won 2 UDs.

In terms of momentum, who might be more confident, you might have to say Alvarez, given that his last fight was a win, and Rios is coming off such a heavy stoppage loss. Rios has had 9 months betweem fights, I don't think he will be rusty, but 9 months is definitely enough time to rest after the Garcia fight.

In terms of resume, previous opposition, Rios has the better experience, been in with Pacquiao, Garcia, Bradley, beaten Acosta, Alvarado. Alvarez has beaten Tackie, done well against Margarito, but both were well past their primes.

Neither are fresh fighters, both early thirties, both been stopped twice, but I don't think either are shot fighters.

I think this will be a great fight, both have been in slugfests, neither have anything to lose, I think they will both go for it, slug it out. I think Rios is better than Alvarez, and I think he'll win, I think it will go the distance, I think when Alvarez backs up, when Rios's volume to the head and body, in variety, really takes a toll, Rios will dominate for a couple of rounds, he will punch himself out, won't stop Alvarez, and Alvarez will drag a late rally out of himself, and the last round will be an all out war, Rios might just edge it.

I think Rios wins by UD, maybe between 96-94 and 98-92.

FOTY IMO so far.
