By Ryan Burton

The boxing world has been buzzing since the recent announcement by HBO that they will no longer broadcast fights promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.

Bob Arum, CEO of Golden Boy's chief rival Top Rank, told BoxingScene's Keith Idec that Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, and influential manager Al Haymon, had "played" HBO and said that Andre Berto and Keith Thurman were paid for "appearances" on the network against subpar competition. He also said that IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander had been "recycled" by the network and would be killed if he faced Ruslan Provodnikov, who gave WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley all that he could handle in a close decision loss this past Saturday in an early Fight of the Year candidate.

Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham naturally took exception to Arum's statements. He feels that his fighter not only would have beaten Provodnikov, but would have severely outclassed him as well.

"Bob's wrong.  If Devon would have fought Provodnikov, Devon would have made him look like the ESPN fighter that he is. Bob's saying a lot of stupid sh*t nowadays. But I guess that's what happens when you get old and senile," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.

My money would be on Devon stopping him inside 8 rounds

Devon would hold Ruslan all night like he did Maidana. It would be a repeat of his last fight against Bailey. We all remember how much of a **** fight that was.

I think Provo gives Devon all he can handle. He might be able to "win" a decision in the Lou, but Provo is not as limited as people think.

[QUOTE=kings14]Say what you will about Devon, but I think Cunningham is right. Devon's constant use of his legs would put Provodnikov out of his ideal distance. Couple that up with Devon's long jab and I think he can outbox him easy.[U] With that being said, a pressure guy like Matthysse got to D...

Devon beats up Ruslan bad. In fact i'd even say that if Devon fought "that" Bradley, he'd probably whoop him too.
