Fight fans, I have been saying this ever since this fight has been inked that Brandon Rios vs Urbano Antillon will most likely be the fight of the year in 2011, as I explained further in this previous article.

Both Rios and Antillon have the fighting styles to put on an exciting match up, for they both keep throwing punches and keep coming forward. You add the bad blood that these two have and you have a guaranteed war inside that ring tonight.

Also, tonight is the return of former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron, who last time at the Home Depot Center made his infamous dive outside the ring against Paul Williams.

Cintron is taking on Carlos Molina, a fight in which he should win comfortably should he choose to not go diving again outside of the ring tonight at the Home Depot Center.


At Friday's weigh in Rios the champion weighed in at: 135 lbs.

The challenger Antillon weighed in at: 134.75 lbs.

Cintron weighed in at: 149.25 lbs.

Molina weighed in at: 151.75 lbs.



We will be there ringside tonight at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, where all the action will take place, providing you great coverage of tonight's fights. So, definitely check back here at the Bleacher Report for all of tonight's coverage of Rios/Antillon.
