Brandon Rios says Aug 2 vs Diego Chaves in Las Vegas is next

Brandon Rios took to twitter just moments ago to announce the date, venue, and opponent of his next fight.

 

"To all friends, family, and fight fans looks like we have a date. Saturday Aug 2 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Bam Bam Brandon Rios vs Diego Chavez!"

 

It looks like Rios meant Diego Gabriel Chaves. Rios hasn't fought since his loss to Manny Pacquiao in Novemeber in Macau. Chaves was beaten by Keith Thurman last year in July suffering the first loss of his career. He fought in Argentina in February stopping Juan Alberto Godoy in three rounds. Both fighters are known to be brawlers and should provide a non stop action fight, and possibly a Fight of the Year candidate.
