Provodnikov Eyes Rios-Chaves Winner, Bradley For Nov.

Philadelphia, PA-The "Siberian Rocky" Ruslan Provodnikov (23-3, 16 KO's) will be watching tonight's HBO's Boxing After Dark card from Las Vegas with a added interest as a potential fall opponent could emerge from the two fights that will be held at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino.

In the opening bout, WBA Super Lightweight champion Jesse Vargas (24-0, 9 KO's) will defend his title against Anton Novikov (29-0, 10 KO's) while in the main event Brandon Rios (31-2-1, 23 KO's) Squares off with Diego Chaves (23-1, 19 KO's) in a Welterweight bout.

"I look forward to this Saturday's fight card on HBO. I know that there is a possibility that I will be back in the ring in November and the opponents being considered are the winner of Rios vs. Chaves, the winner of Vargas vs. Novikov, as well as a rematch with Timothy Bradley. All these are great options for me and I'm curious to see who the winners are this weekend. ", said Provodnikov

The HBO card will begin at 9:45 ET / PT and will also feature a WBO Light Heavyweight title bout between Sergey Kovalev and Blake Caparello from Atlantic City that will complete the split side tripleheader.

[QUOTE=HEND;14818777]LOL, Provo and Rios are C level brawlers, Thurman has way better skills, handspeed, defense, movement, lateral movement, and punching power. He is unproven yet but he would murder Provo and Rios that's for sure. I can't say a single…
