The final press conference for the rubber match between Mike Alvarado and Brandon Rios took place earlier today in Denver, Colorado.

The two will meet on Saturday night in an HBO-televised fight to settle their score.

“This is one of the best trilogies that we’ve had in boxing in a long time and I think this fight will be just as good if not better than the previous two,” said promoter Bob Arum.

“This is going to be a great fight that will make history,” proclaimed Alvarado. “I’m getting into that ring to give it my all as always and more importantly, I’m getting in there to win.

“The first two fights were good and this third one will be no exception,” added Alvarado. “I worked hard to make a good fight and to give my fans a memorable fight.”

Added Rios, “I’ve been in Denver for a few days and the preparations have gone well and I’m ready for a good fight. I know it will be a difficult fight but we already know that these fights with Alvarado are like that and we’ll give it our all on Saturday.

“I feel rejuvenated and ready to start a new chapter in my career. I know I’m well prepared for this fight and to get the win,” finished Rios.
