This is the first victory of Manny in 2 years after getting an controversial loss to Timothy Bradley and a devastating knock out from Manuel Marquez.
Manny also out-punched his opponent. He threw an amazing 223 power punches as compared to Rio’s 113. The power punches in the head left Rios with swollen eyes and a deep cut above his left eyebrow.
Ask about his future opponents, Manny played it safe and just told that he will just let his promoter. Top Rank Boxing, to choose his next opponent. This is a good sign that Manny is still not thinking about retirement.
“This is not the last fight,” he told the ring side reporter. He had some good things to say also to Rios then gave this statement, “It’s nothing personal. This is my job.”
Before the fight, ex American Idol contestant, Jessica Sanchez both sang the Philippine and American National Anthems.
