Alvarado vs. Provodnikov WBO Title Bout is Possible

by Rick Reeno

According to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, junior welterweight contender Mike Alvarado (33-1, 23KOs) will likely contend for the vacant WBO championship in his next fight.

Juan Manuel Marquez, who faces Manny Pacquiao on December 8th in Las Vegas, is  going to vacate his WBO 140-pound title, says Arum.

The vacant belt would provide Alvarado with the opportunity to fight for a belt - and Ruslan Provodnikov (22-1, 15KOs) is a potential opponent.

"The WBO title will be vacant because Marquez is giving up the title, the 140-pound title, and I think [WBO President] Paco [Valcarcel] would sanction Ruslan Provodnikov with Alvarado - and that would be one hell of a fight," Arum said.

Like how every body assumes Pac is beating Marquez

It's gonna be another war. Alvarado won't have a long career at this rate. Who cares if it's for a belt? Belts don't mean **** anymore.

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5;12604629]Rios is getting a pac shot. Alvarado gets a WBO shot. Nothing wrong with that. When Mike wins and Rios loses they can rematch.[/QUOTE] [B]Nothing to add......[/B]

Good fight for Alvarado. Shouldn't be for a title though. Alvarado and Rios can rematch if Alvarado wins and once Rios loses.

Another fan-friendly matchup for Mike. If he loses to Prov though, his career will be hurting.
