Brandon Rios stops Mike Alvarado in seven

" I wanted the fight to go on longer." Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios told Max Kellerman just moments after he stopped Mike Alvarado after a head to head throw down tonight in Carson CA.

The former lightweight world champion Brandon Rios (31-0-1, 22 KOs) delt the equally vicious Alvarado a spectacular serires of punches in the seventh round to stop the unbeaten jr welterweight (33-1, 23 KOs). It was war from the get-go with both fighters loading up with short phone-booth punches. Rios hurt Alvarado in the seventh prompting referee Pat Russell to stop the fight at 1:57. At the time of the stoppage, the scores were 57-57, 57-57 and 58-56 for Rios.
