Watch: Heavyweight Champ Mike Tyson Talks Pacquiao vs. Rios Fight
When it comes to critiquing the sport of boxing, who’s better than former heavyweight champ himself Mike Tyson to give his opinion?
HBO Sports’ Jim Lampley sits down with Mike Tyson and talks about whether or not Manny Pacquiao, at age 34, is pushing himself too far, and if he even stands a chance to beat Brandon Rios in their upcoming fight.
“Pacquiao, when he’s on top of his game, he has so much movement, so much lateral movement,” says Tyson. “Rios has a lot of spirit when it comes just as a warrior in his fights. It’s going to be an exciting fight, it’s going to be truly exciting.”
Episode 2 of 24/7 Pacquiao/Rios debuts Sat., Nov. 16 on HBO which all leads up to their live pay-per-view fight on Sat., Nov. 23.
