 RIOS TWEETS HE'S FIGHTING BRADLEY ON NOV. 7TH

There has been no official confirmation yet, but Brandon Rios is under the impression he'll be fighting Timothy Bradley on November 7th at Las Vegas' Thomas & Mack Center. In separate postings to his Twitter account, Rios wrote, "To all friends, family & my fans I will be fighting Nov 7th in Vegas. [I'll] keep everyone posted... This is going to be a good fight... can't wait and the fans [are] going to have fun watching it too." Rios linked his comments to an unofficial fight poster, leaving no doubt he was refrring to Bradley, who holds the WBO welterweight title. Both men are promoted by Top Rank, whose website was silent about the match-up.  Bradley announced yesterday he is parting ways with Joel Diaz, the only trainer he has ever had as a pro.  One remaining issue blocking a formal announcement of the fight could be whether the WBO will sanction Bradley-Rios as a title fight. Rios (33-2-1) is a former lightweight titlist but has won two in a row at welterweight (Diego Chaves and Mike Alvarado). --Scott Shaffer

LAMONT PETERSON TO FIGHT OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST

Press Release: Ex-IBF 140-pound title holder 
Lamont Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KOs) will look to bounce back after a razor-thin loss to Danny Garcia on April 11th when he takes on 2008 Olympic gold medalist Felix Diaz Jr. (17-0, 8 KOs) on October 17th (NBC, 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT) close to his Washington, D.C., home at EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. 
Against Garcia, the world champion at the time, Peterson unleashed a smart, defense-oriented game plan through the first half of the fight before pouring it on in later rounds. Two of three judges, though, saw the fight for Garcia at 115-113 with the third card coming back a draw.  
Though 31 years old like Peterson, Diaz has less experience in the ring but has decent wins over Emmanuel Lartei Lartey, Adrian Granados and Gabriel Bracero in his last three tilts.
