Durability

Rios is a warrior who plows forward all the time. He constantly seeks out exchanges and has blind trust in his ability to eat punches (which, by the way, has yet to fail him). Lately, Pacquiao has changed his offensive approach. He still throws a high volume of punches, but he pays more attention to his defense. He generally takes the proper precautions during exchanges, while Rios simply doubles down, returning two punches for every one he receives.


Advantage: Rios
