'Manny Pacquiao will finish Brandon Rios in 8 rounds'

A highly focused Manny Pacquiao is a dangerous opponent for any fighter, and this is what he needs to be when he goes up against Brandon Rios this November.

According to Filipino trainer Marvin Somodio, Pacquiao has the edge on punching power and quickness against the Mexican-American brawler.

If the fighting congressman uses these attributes properly, then Rios will be finished in just eight rounds, said Somodio.

“In terms of power and speed, Rios will be swamped by Manny,” said Somodio in an interview with The Philippine Star’s Joaquin Henson.

Somodio is now part of Freddie Roach’s staff at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles.

He’ll be helping Pacquiao prepare for the November 24 fight against Rios.

“I think the fight won’t go over eight rounds. All Manny needs to do is focus on the fight and not to get careless. There’s no reason he’ll lose,” said the Ilonggo native.

Pacquiao will be making his comeback against Rios, following his knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez last December.

The Filipino boxer needs a dominant victory over the Mexican fighter to bounce back from back-to-back losses to Marquez and Timothy Bradley.

A convincing win over Rios will put Pacquiao back for a possible world title fight.

Somodio believes that it is only a matter of time before the fighting congressman gets back to the top of the boxing world.

“Manny will become a world champion again,” he said.
