DENVER -- Denver's very own homegrown world champion "Mile High" MIKE ALVARADO  and  No. 1 contender the "Siberian Rocky" RUSLAN PROVODNIKOV of Russia -- both coming off nationally-televised Fight of the Year performances -- will go mano a mano in their world championship rumble tonight in front of a sold out 1STBANK Center audience.

The last tickets were sold on Friday at 9:15 p.m.

Alvarado (34-1, 23 KOs) will make the first defense of his World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior welterweight title a "home game," when he battles Provodnikov (22-2, 15 KOs), of Russia, tonight at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo.  This marks the area's first world championship fight featuring a local fighter since September 15, 2000 when former World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight champion Stevie Johnston unsuccessfully challenged defending WBC lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo, via majority draw, at Pepsi Center.  Alvarado vs. Provodnikov will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing®, beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.  It will be the first time HBO has ever televised a fight live from Colorado.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m. with the first bout starting at 5:30 p.m. local time.

Promoted by Top Rank® and Banner Promotions, in association with Tecate, Alvarado and Provodnikov enter this world title tilt fresh from Fight of the Year performances that took place in March, just two weeks apart from each other, and were televised on HBO.  They boast a combined record of 56-3 (38 KOs) -- a winning percentage of 95% and a victory by knockout ratio of 68%.

[QUOTE=ModernTalking]That's still nothing compare to the PPV KING Canelo selling 2.2 millions on his first PPV fight...that's a record.[/QUOTE] You're talking about TV subscribers of an event, whereas this is the actual live event. Two different things.

[QUOTE=_original_]Just bought my tickets an hour ago from the box office, misleading information.[/QUOTE] A sellout is usually 90% + tickets sold, not every ticket sold

There's a reason the number wasnt given, thats because its 6,500 Still good to have a big boxing event in Denver and have 6500 people come

Just bought my tickets an hour ago from the box office, misleading information.

Well, some 6 hours ago I was allowed to order tickets online for the fight at the 1ST BANK Center... I didn't order because I live across the Pond.
