BOXING FREE PICK: Though Pacquiao has lost some of his mystique over the last year, he still is a very skilled boxer and he is putting himself in good position to snap his two-fight losing streak. Rios doesn’t have a lot of experience fighting at welterweight, meaning Pacquiao will be the bigger, stronger fighter. This is also Rios’ fight big fight of this level, which means he could have trouble dealing with the atmosphere and pressure. Pacquiao knew to schedule a fight with someone he could beat, and he will beat Rios. Pacquiao will work his speed and eventually start to land the big punches in the later round.
