Unbeaten lightweight (135 pounds) Brandon Rios, of Oxnard, Calif., scored last Saturday night’s Showtime televised, ninth straight win and his eighth stoppage during that run with a broken hand on the way to a 10th-round knockout that dethroned WBA champ Miguel Acosta of Caracas, Venezuela, at the Palms Casino, Resort, in Las Vegas.

Nicknamed “Bam Bam,” the 24-year-old Rios dropped the 32-year-old Acosta once each during the sixth, eighth and last round of the fight, finally cornering his rival and unloading a barrage of blows — the most telling of which was a vicious right hand that crumpled Acosta at 1:14 of the round.

Trained by Robert Garcia and promoted by Top Rank Promotions, Rios improved to 27-0-1, with his 20th knockout.

In defeat, Acosta slipped to 28-4, with 22 knockouts, having entered the bout riding a 19-fight winning streak that had included 12 stoppages and knockouts in his previous three bouts.

We caught up to Rios and Garcia to discuss the hand injury and the fight.
