Rios has an aggressive style and always makes exciting fights.
Regarding his style in the ring, Brandon said, "I'm very aggressive, I like to come forward a lot. I've always been like that - I like to put a lot of pressure on my opponent.
"But lately, my trainer still lets me put pressure, but he wants me to box more. So I'm learning boxing now. I'm learning both styles - when I need to fight, I'll fight. When I need to box, I'll box."
Regarding his nickname, he said, "My coach, Robert Garcia, and Dr. Anderson, they're the ones that gave it to me. After I had a couple of pro fights, they told me, 'You need a name,' and I was like, 'I don't know one.' So they were watching me fight, and that's all it took - two punches and I dropped the guy - and they were like, 'Look - bam, bam. Let's call him Bam Bam.' "
