Alvarado-Provodnikov Draws Heavy Interest From HBO

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised that HBO is very interested in having WBO interim-junior welterweight champion Mike Alvarado (34-1, 23KOs) face Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2, 15KOs), potentially on a televised date of October 19th. Alvarado last fought in March, where he won a close twelve round unanimous decision over Brandon Rios in their high profile rematch. Provodnikov was also last seen in action in the month of March, when he moved up to the welterweight division and nearly knocked out WBO champion Timothy Bradley. While Provodnikov came close, Bradley was able to hang on and win a razor-close twelve round decision.

If Alvarado-Provodnikov is made - HBO's current schedule would suggest the event would get packaged with the replay of Timothy Bradley-Juan Manuel Marquez, which takes place on HBO pay-per-view one week prior at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
