Brandon Rios manger, Cameron Dunkin, confirmed to BoxingScene.com that Rios injured his right elbow during training which has forced him to withdraw from his HBO televised fight against Mauricio Herrera which was scheduled for July 7th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA.
Rumor is that Rios struggling to make weight and that is why he is pulling out. Though it is just a rumor at this time, I believe it. Rios swears up and down that he was making weight for his last fight against Richard Abril, he loud mouth to everyone that he hired a nutritionist to help him make weight…. On the day of the weight in, he was two full pounds over losing his chance to win a title for the second fight in a row.
Even Mauricio doesn’t believe he got injured.
“I dont believe he is injured at all. If he focused more on his training rather than traveling to all these fight cards all over the U.S., he wouldn’t have to worry about his weight which has been a problem for him his last few fights. Hopefully Top Rank will still be able to get me on the show,” said Herrera.
I am very disappointed this fight got cancelled. In my opinion, its better than the main event, Nonito Donaire vs Jeffrey Mathebula.
