Brandon Rios, Provodnikov Ready To Face Each Other

By Edward Chaykovsky

There could be a rematch between trainers Robert Garcia and Freddie Roach, as their boxers are ready to face each other. Roach's star boxer, eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao, dominated Brandon Rios (31-2-1, 23KOs) over twelve rounds last month. Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) knocked out Mike Alvarado in October to capture the WBO junior welterweight title. Alvarado holds a win over Rios.

Provodnikov is one of the boxer is the running to face Pacquiao on April 12th, but in several interviews he rejected such a fight - stating that Pacquiao was a friend and he doesn't want to cause an issue with their mutual trainer, Roach.

On the social networks, Provodnikov called Rios out - "Brandon Rios, I agree to make fight [with you]. I’m ready [to fight you]."

Rios replied - "Ruslan Provodnikov, yes sir [I'll fight you]. Me too, [I'm ready to fight], so let [us] make it happen.”
