Naazim: Manny Pacquiao Would Beat Provodnikov Up

Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Veteran trainer Naazim Richardson believes eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao would beat up Ruslan Provodnikov in the same manner as he did to Brandon Rios last month in Macau.

Provodnikov, who is also trained by Pacquiao's coach, Freddie Roach, is one of the names being floated for Pacquiao's next fight on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KOs) has often used Providnikov (23-2, 16KOs) as a sparring partner.

"The Russian would get beat up by Pacquiao. Any guy who walks in there like that [with that kind of style] gets beat up by Pacquiao. Pacquiao, especially that he's familiar with him, picks the Russian apart. He punches like Hercules and takes everything you want on the chin," Naazim said.

[QUOTE=Doctor_Tenma;14064525]I've heard plenty of people say Bradley can win more decisively in a rematch against Pacquiao but people don't want to hear it. I agree with Richardson here, this time Bradley isn't gonna win a close decision. Don't know where…

Provo was giving and taking during those sparring sessions. That probably why Marquez sent pacquiao to the moon. Manny better keep his cracked chin away from the russian

Yupp Prov has nothin for Manny. The movement would befuddle him. Ruslan would have to work on trying to land counters, that would be his only real chance, catching Pac and reminding him or December 2012.
