This fight is really flying under the radar and may end up contending or being fight of the year.

Diego Chaves comes forward looking to brawl. Just check out his fight against Keith Thurman last year (he also gave Thurman by far his toughest challenge to date).

We all know how Brandon Rios likes to fight. He's not coming to box, he's coming to brawl and slug it out.

This is a fight not to be missed. This has all out slugfest written all over it from the moment the bell rings. As far as fights I am looking forward to on the boxing calendar, this may be the one I am anticipating the most.
