Alvarado: I'm No Quitter, Wasn't Worth The Heath Risk

Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) is a hot piece of boxing property after stopping Mike Alvarado in ten rounds to capture the WBO junior welterweight championship at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Denver. After seven explosive rounds of action, Provodnikov began to pull away in eight - after punishing Alvarado (34-2) and scoring two knockdowns in the process. It was the first time Alvarado had tasted the canvas as a pro. After Provodnikov unleashed more punishment in the tenth, Alvarado couldn't answer the bell for the eleventh.

Referee Tony Weeks said he asked Alvarado a few times if he wanted to continue and the boxer said he was unable to go on.

At the time of the stoppage, Alvarado was well behind on the official scorecards. He needed a dramatic knockout to win and there was very little left in his tank. For his own health, Alvarado felt it was necessary to call it a day.

"It was not worth taking more punishment because the damage could be permanent," Alvarado said. "It just wasn't my night. I have a lot of heart. I'm not a quitter."

When you look at Alvarado's win over Prescott, and the condition Prescott was in when he stopped him... There is just no comparison, since Ruslan was coming on harder when he saw blood. It was a good stoppage. I am surprised Weeks (or his corner) did not stop it after the second knockdown. Alvara...

[QUOTE=royjonesjrKTFO]Sorry to say, but he QUIT. Dude was always a mediocre boxer.[/QUOTE] for mike to have won the fight he would need a ko which is not going to happen so it was the smart thing to do, why take 2 more rounds of punishment??
