Diego De La Hoya, the cousin of the great Oscar De La Hoya is making a big name for himself. He is now highly ranked in the division and his record stands at 21-0. He has had some difficulties lately in making weight and you wonder how long he can stay at 122 pounds. His best win so far came against Randy Caballero who was 24-0 at the time. Ronny Rios is a decent enough fighter with only 3 losses. He has 30 wins on his resume but has never beaten an elite fighter in his division. The thing about Rios is that every time he has stepped up he has lost. To his credit he went the whole distance with Ray Vargas but was outclassed.
This is a good fight for De La Hoya that he defintely is ready for. Ronny Rios while have his moments in the fight but De La Hoya over 12 will be the clearly better fighter. The Pick is Diego De La Hoya to win.
