VIDEO: Antillon confident that he can break down Rios

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."
