Q&A with Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios Empty Q&A with Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios

Post by Fists of Fury Fri Oct 28, 2011 2:52 pm

Apologies if this seems a little soon after taking your questions for the Robert Guerrero Q&A, but this is an opportunity I felt I couldn't pass up on.

I spoke with Brandon Rios via Twitter yesterday, and after telling me that he is pleased that Top Rank are talking up a potential Rios vs Gamboa matchup, where he wants a war, he then went on to tell me that he hopes John Murray gives him a war. Basically, this guy is all about a war, and you can see it in his fighting style!

Brandon agreed to answer some of our questions if I gather them from our members, so if there is anything you would like to ask him then fire away.

PS Ridiculous comments will be removed, yes JBW, I'm looking at you.

Nice, one of my favourite fighters stylistically.

Did you see Acosta last time out and if so do you think you took something out of him?

When you were getting outboxed early like against Acosta did you consider changing tactics or do you have faith in your power and aggression breaking him down?

Would you consider coming to the UK if Kevin Mitchell put himself into position, for example by beating the Burns-Katsidis winner?

How long can you stay at Lightweight/how long would you want to?

Do you plan on carrying Murray or will you take him out early? What round should I bet on?

David Haye recently stuck to his guns about his retirement date. With your all action style and the effect numerous wars (and don't change that, one of the most entertaining boxers around to watch!) can have on a boxer is there a particular age (roughly) you'd want to be hanging up the gloves by? What could you hypothetically see yourself doing post-career?

-----

You're a monster at the 135lb limit - How long will you stay at lightweight for and is Gamboa the only fighter you'd be prepared/able to stay there for?

Great to watch, isn't he? Superb mini-war with Antillon last time out.

Do you ever worry that your all-action, aggressive style will have a negative effect later in your career in terms of 'wear and tear'?

What are you more concerned with, longevity, or entertaining the boxing fans?

Would you consider moving to 140lbs and fighting Maidana once your done with Murray? Surely that would be a fight of the year

Damn, I wouldn't wanna be JBW right now...

Are you the new Gatti?

Would you rather win a world title in a dull fight or lose in a fight of the year?

How would you combat the advatages of a shaved head?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how wicked iz I?

If you had to hunt down and flay a mermaid, where would you search?

If you were offered the chance to fight Vitali Klistchko, would you take it?

Who is your favourite UK fighter of all time?

Margarito v Cotto II (if this gets out before the fight happens) who wins?

Would you rather knife fight one chimp or fist fight two chimps?

If you could breed two different species together, what would they be?

Did you know they bread a donkey and a zebra together?? If a donkey can lay zebra, don't you think that gives me a fair chance with Gwyneth Paltrow?

What is the most important piece of advice anyone's ever given you?

What is your favourite Floyd Mayweather Jr fight?

Been to see the new Tin Tin film yet?

May I have a thumbnail picture of your favourite relative?

What do you think of this fella?
Spoiler:

I'm having some family round for tea on Sunday, would you like to come?

Do you follow LaCrosse? Who's your fave player?

What has been the most enjoyable of your fights so far?

Who is your biggest influence in boxing?

Who is your biggest inspiration?

Would you mind killing Chris Martin for me?

What result would you see yourself against Roberto Duran when he was 28 fights into his career?
