Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado will clash again on March 30 in Las Vegas, it has been confirmed.

The pair were involved in 2012's fight of the year when they went to war in a sensational light-welterweight clash in which Alvarado was stopped in the seventh.

Having won that WBO eliminator, Rios had been looking for a championship fight but the clamour for a rematch was too great.

A fight with either Manny Pacquiao or Juan Manuel Marquez now looks even further away for the undefeated Rios, with that pair looking increasingly likely to fight for a fifth time.

Also reappearing on March 30 is WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, with Monto Carlo being the likely venue.
