Provodnikov-Algieri Clash Heading To Barclays Center

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised that WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) vs. Chris Algieri (19-0, 8KOs), scheduled for June 14th, is shifting to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The HBO televised event was previously targeted for the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

The Barclays has an exclusive contract with Golden Boy Promotions, who work with HBOs rival Showtime. BoxingScene was told that Barclays reached out to Golden Boy, who gave them the thumbs up to host that event. Neither Provodnikov or Algieri are promoted by Golden Boy's main business rival, Top Rank - but Top Rank will be a co-promoter, with Artie Pelullo and Joe DeGuardia as they have an option on Provodnikov.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;14418514]Algieri was on Friday Night Fights a few weeks back. He's an ok boxer who can't punch. Easy win for Provodnikov. Interesting that Golden Boy gave the ok for this to be at Barclays. They don't cooperate with other promoters…

[QUOTE=Sugar Adam Ali;14418241]Anyone know anything about Algieri,, looking at his record, he seems not to have much power, but can he box.. Ruslan will have trouble with a tricky mover,, can ALgieri fight like that?[/QUOTE] I saw Algeri's last fight…
