The third and final episode of HBO’s 24/7: Pacquiao-Rios will air on Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT featuring Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios in advance of their 147-pound clash on Saturday in Macau (Sunday in China).
The broadcast is likely to include footage from Wednesday’s obscenity-laced fracas that took place in Macau
The altercation was between Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach and Rios’ trainer Robert Garcia, and also included former Pacquiao conditioning coach, Alex Ariza, who later engaged in an angry tirade with Roach. Ariza also kicked Roach when the veteran trainer advanced toward him at the start of the altercation.
Rios, meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous-decision loss to Mike Alvarado in March that avenged Alavarado’s seventh-round stoppage loss in October of 2012.
Below are videos of the incident.
