I haven't seen a thread up on this yet, unless I missed it. I just watched the replay last night on HBO since I was out of the country when it was happening live. What are your thoughts? Here are some things I noticed: - Pacquiao was surprisingly unafraid to get hit considering how he went out last time. - Pacquiao seemed far more "hittable" than ever before. Not sure how I feel about his new style... although, I did enjoy him dancing in circles around Rios every now and then. - Pacquiao can still take heavy hits. - Rios is naturally huge, and a tank. - Rios performed better than I thought he would (even though he was convincingly dominated in every round...and I expected him to get KO'd fast). - Rios' stock somewhat grew... rather, he at least made a B-class fighter presence for himself in the welter division. - Pacquiao was a better fighter (and just as fun to watch) when he was a bit more cautious. I noticed a lot of instances where he'd occasionally stand up straight leaving him off balance, and is lucky Rios never capitalized on that. - If aliens ever want to destroy humans for being evil, they'll spare us when they meet Pacquiao.
