Power

Not since his 2011 win over Shane Mosley has Manny Pacquiao consistently flashed the explosiveness and raw power that he once used to finish opponents. Brandon Rios, on the other hand, has been able to focus on improving his power now that the dramatic struggles to make weight at a lower division are no longer hanging over his head. Said Robert Garcia, Rios' trainer: "Rios is now at 147 and training hard, but he is eating much better and more, and that's why he'll carry more power."


Advantage: Rios
