November 7 2015 - L vs Tim Bradley

Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios

Brandon Rios aka 'Bam Bam' is a tough fighter from Lubbock, Texas, USA.

He has a remarkable record that includes a fairly high propensity to win his fights by stoppage. Notable wins include Beating Richar Abril in 2012 by a split decision to win the vacant WBA World Lightweight title,  and a controversial fight against Diego Gabriel Chaves which he won by default after the opponent was disqualified for use of the elbow in 2014.

Defeat to Tim Bradley on November 7 2015 was a big disappointment. 

After being stopped in the ninth round, Rios looked somewhat dejected after a sluggish display.
