Brandon Rios is not leaving any stone unturned in his quest to deal Manny Pacquiao his third straight loss that could lead to the Filipino’s retirement.

The Pacquiao-Rios showdown is more than five months away but the Mexican-American has been sweating it out the past few weeks, making sure he doesn’t get out of shape as he prepares to report for training camp.

Pacquiao and Rios are set to slug it out on Nov. 24 at The Venetian in Macau.

During a break in his training session in Oxnard, California, Rios oozed with confidence over the Pacquiao duel, assuring fight fans of an action-packed bout.

“It’s going to be a war out there,” said Rios, who will receive more than $3 million for the bout.

While Rios is in a semi-training mode, Pacquiao hasn’t really done a similar thing since he doesn’t do anything heavy this early.

But Pacquiao regularly works out a sweat by playing hoops, according to his adviser Mike Koncz.

Based on the latest odds, Pacquiao is a solid betting favorite.
A check with a well-known betting site reveal that Pacquiao is a -500 favorite (a $500 bet on Pacquiao wins $100), while Rios is a +350 underdog (a $100 wager on Rios wins $350).

Rios is unperturbed wit the odds, saying he is out to shock the world come fight at the CotaiArena, which can accommodate 15,000.
