A Saturday press conference is in the works for smack-talkers Adrien Broner and Paulie Malignaggi.
VIDEO: Antillon confident that he can break down Rios
A confident and in-shape Urbano Antillon says he's ready to prove to his doubters and to WBA lightweight beltholder Brandon Rios, who he challenges on Saturday, that he's ready to hold a major title.
Two-time lightweight title challenger Urbano Antillon believes his third shot -- against unbeaten and slightly favored WBA beltholder Brandon Rios, who he fights on Saturday on Showtime -- will be the charm.
Antillon told RingTV's Doug Fischer that Rios is not as "seasoned" as he is and that the best two fighters on the titleholder's resume -- Anthony Peterson and Miguel Acosta -- "didn't have anything to keep him at bay.
"I do," said Antillon (28-2, 20 knockouts). "A big difference between me and Acosta is when I get Brandon Rios hurt I'm going to go out and finish the job."
