One of the thing we know about Brandon Rios is that he can go 12 rounds but it's at a decent pace. This kind of fighting is done because a fighter doesn't want to exhaust his energy and burn out. There have been times that Brandon has fatigued a little because he was straining to make weight. We saw one episode in which he didn't eat for a few days. Alex Ariza believes in doing it right. No need to starve yourself. Alex knows how to gradual get you down to fighting weight and have alot of natural energy.
Manny Pacquiao was a prime example of that when Ariza was working in his corner. This time the roles have changed and Alex Ariza was hired by Brandon Rios team and they know they are going to get their monies worth with Alex. Actually the job will be a little easier for Alex because Brandon is fighting at a higher weight. Now Ariza can build his muscle, strength, and conditioning at peak performance. I think we are going to see a totally different Brandon Rios. One who is bigger, stronger, and faster than before. Let's wait and see Alex Ariza's final product.
