Pacquiao vs Rios results: Manny Pacquiao takes clear UD over Brandon Rios

Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez IV, 2013 - Al Bello

Pac was coming of the most devastating defeat of his career and many questioned if he could return to form in the wake of the KO loss. Manny rose to the occasion, outclassing Rios to the decision victory.

Saturday November 23, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios, live on HBO PPV. Pacquiao vs Rios live from Macau airs live this Saturday, November 23 with a fight time of 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.

In a busy and stacked year for boxing, this is the year's closing PPV event, and it's a good one. Here, Pacquiao steps back into the ring for the first time since his crushing KO loss to Juan Manuel Marquez last year. Even before that fight, there were questions being asked about how much longer Pacquiao had left in the sport. Now, after finding himself face down on the canvas, those questions must be asked even louder. Brandon Rios is coming off his own loss in a tough, great fight against Mike Alvarado. The all-action, straight-ahead Rios is seen by many as a hand-picked perfect foil rebound fight for Pacquiao here, but that's definitely being too presumptuous. We still don't know how much that KO took out of Pac and what he has left. If there's not much still in the tank, Pacquiao could be primed to lose his "3rd" (ahem) in a row. It's a fascinating fight, and beyond that, it should just be a great clash.
