Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
Lightweight 26 0 1 (19)
Last Year s Ranking: Unranked
Status Report: Rios thrilling win over Anthony Peterson (W DQ 7) in November on HBO was clearly a breakout fight for him, even if Peterson s incessant nut punching deprived viewers of the conclusive ending for which they were looking. Between that fight and a win over reasonably tough Jorge Luis Teron (KO 3), and another over Omri Lowther (KO 4), Rios had a very good year if you don t count his ill advised impression of Freddie Roach.
Future: Reportedly will face Miguel Acosta on Feb. 26 in Las Vegas.
