-!!PPV!!- Chaves vs Rios Live Stream Free Online HBO Fight

Hello Boxing Fans ! With all the trouble it took to get Diego Chaves (23-1, 19 KO) to Las Vegas for his fight against Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios (31-2-1, 23 KO), the scrap better be as good as most expect it to be.

Up until Wednesday afternoon, Chaves was experiencing issues obtaining a visa to travel from Argentina to the United States for Saturday's bout at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. There was legitimate concern that the 28-year-old Argentine may have to be replaced.Miraculously, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum was able to use his power and influence to push the process along, and the fight is on. Per's Dan Rafael, Arum said:Here's how you can watch the action.

When: Saturday, August 2 at 9:45 p.m. ET
Where: Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

There are a lot of reasons to watch this fight on Saturday night.

"Rios vs. Chaves looks, at least on paper, to be a potential Fight of the Year contender, and there are compelling arguments to be made for why either man could legitimately walk away with the win."

Both Rios and Chaves are sluggers who never shy away from an exchange. Rios was badly outclassed in his last bout against Manny Pacquiao in November 2013. He showed his trademark chin and toughness but simply couldn't land against the new and improved Pacman, who placed an emphasis on movement.

Chaves won his last outing. He scored a TKO over Juan Alberto Godoy in the third round in February but was stopped in an entertaining and competitive scrap with Keith "One Time" Thurman in July 2013.

Based on the two fighters' styles, this should be exciting.

It's also the headliner for a fairly strong HBO broadcast. The card also features the first title defense for WBA junior welterweight champion Jessie Vargas, and WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev will face Blake Caparello from the Revel Resort in Atlantic City.


There are fights in a boxer's career that painfully display their ceiling in the sport. That bout came for Rios when he faced Pacquiao.

Rios' lack of speed and defensive deficiencies had never been so clearly exposed. Most in the boxing community knew Bam Bam didn't possess the fastest hands. We also knew he didn't focus a ton on head movement, but when you see an opponent take advantage of these weaknesses, it forces you to put Rios in a box.

He's a one-dimensional slugger who can only have success against someone who stands in front of him and engages in all-out war.

Fortunately for Rios, he may have the right opponent in Chaves. The 28-year-old Argentine won't make Rios chase him. Thus, this is a fight Bam Bam can win—especially if he's in shape.

Rios claims that he hasn't been prepared mentally and physically for his last few fights. Per Dan Ambrose of Boxing News 24, Rios said:

"We went back to old school training. I forgot what it takes to be a champion. This is the first time in a while I’m physically and mentally ready." Not everyone is buying Rios' story.

The former WBA lightweight champion has had conditioning, weight and stamina issues in previous bouts. He failed to make weight for his fight against Richar Abril in 2012 and his fight against John Murray in 2011.

In the second fight with Mike Alvarado, Rios didn't seem to have the energy to finish strong.

His "win" over Abril was another instance where Rios' wind looked less than stellar in the ring. Most believed Abril deserved to win, but Rios got the nod from the judges. The lackluster performance on that night was partially due to conditioning issues, but Rios was also outboxed.

He is not a fighter who goes into a fight with a game plan more sophisticated than a seek-and-destroy mentality.

That said, if Chaves brings the fight to him, he won't need a layered approach. The action could be exciting enough for us to forget everything Rios doesn't do well.
