Provodnikov makes his much anticipated 2014 ring debut on Saturday, June 14 when he defends his 140-pound title vs. Chris Algieri live on HBO from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

He isn't a Khazakh. GGG is. Provodnikov is from the tundra region of Russia (think half European, half eskimo). Same thing applies though. Very tough place to grow up.
