Call me crazy, but I don’t think Brandon Rios liked Max Kellerman talking about a possible Pacquiao vs. Provodnikov match. Check out this epic quote courtesy of Boxing Scene.
“F*** Max Kellerman, that motherf*****r and f*** everybody that’s talking about Pacquiao-Ruslan, they’re already counting me out! Everybody is counting me out. Everybody thinks I’m a tune up fight for Pacquiao. So Max Kellerman thinks that too so f*** that mother***er. He’s always talking sh*t, saying stuff in my face like ‘Oh Brandon, you’re this, this and that. You’ve won this and that’. He’s a f***ing pretender”
“I don’t give a f*** if HBO makes you say sh*t or not, you don’t say [that type of] sh*t. Nobody makes me say sh*t but me. So at the end of the day that’s f****ing bulls**t”.
“They’re counting me out. Everybody is going to find out November 23rd, don’t count this motherf***er out because this mother****er is not easy to go. He’s a rock solid mother***er and he comes to fight. He comes with his balls and he’s ready. I’m going to show everyone to never count me out” stated Rios.
I give Rios a very good chance against Pacquiao, not because I think he is better than Pacquiao, but because we simply don’t know if Pacquiao will ever be the same after being put to sleep by Juan Manuel Marquez.
