Provodnikov: Algieri Should Be More Worried About Me!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO 140-pound champion Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) is under the impression that undefeated challenger Chris Algieri (19-0, 8KOs) is taking him lightly as this Saturday's HBO televised showdown approaches at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

This will be Provodnikov's first title defense since capturing the belt with a stoppage victory over Mike Alvarado last October in the champion's backyard of Denver.

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;14651938]I have a sense of genuine fear when it comes to the safety and health of Algieri facing Provodnikov. Provodnikov might retire this guy.[/QUOTE] Fight will be stopped either by himself, his corner , ref or doctors before he takes…
