If you've followed boxing at all in the past few years, you likely know the story of Brandon Rios vs. Mike Alvarado. And for those casual fans who are looking for some fun boxing to tune into, this is a good one to check out. These two men first met in 2012, then again in 2013. Both fights are tremendous, and many will argue for both as their respective Fight of the Year winners. The two rivals are 1-1 in the series, making a rubber match inevitable. Both have fallen on hard times since that last fight, going a collective 1-3 (and that 1 win coming via DQ), but you still get the sense that they will bring something out of each other and make another memorable clash - one last time.
