Herrera ‘Down and Upset’ after Rios Cancels!
In a huge disappointment for California fight fans, the highly anticipated Jr. welterweight clash between Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios and Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera is now off.
Fightnews reported that the cancelation was due to a shoulder Injury suffered by Rios but Herrera isn’t buying it.
“I’m a little down and upset.” Herrera told Standnfight on Thursday “I think it was a combination of him probably being overweight and also seeing that I’m a real contender”
“This is not the first time it has happen to me and probably not that last. I hope they can find another opponent for that night because I’m feeling in a really good shape. I was hoping to show everyone the fighter that I really am. Rios smashed my dreams for the moment but I will continue to train and keep my head up high for all my fans.”
