A press conference was held this week for the upcoming doubleheader on HBO this October featuring Nonito Donaire vs. Toshiaki Nishioka, and Brandon Rios vs. Mike Alvarado. Right here, you can find a complete collection of pictures from the Donaire and Rios presser to see how all of the fighters looked as they officially announced their big upcoming matches and talked about what the fights would be like.
The Rios vs. Alvarado match is just going to be a very fun fight. Each man assured everyone that the fight wouldn’t go the distance, and that certainly seems like it would be the case. It’s a potential Fight of the Year when these two all-action warriors get in there. It’s also Rios’ first fight at Junior Welterweight, and a clash between unbeaten fighters with very similar records, although Rios has faced the superior opposition.
Donaire vs. Nishioka is an important match-up in the super bantamweight division. Nishioka is a respected long-time titleholder, while Donaire is looking to get another win at 122 lbs before likely moving right on up to featherweight. These two have a lot of respect for one another, and it should be an intriguing clash of styles when they get into the ring together.
Enjoy all of the pictures from the Rios-Alvarado and Donaire-Nishioka press conference in Los Angeles, and keep on checking back with us all day long for more boxing news coverage.
