WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) sees nothing wrong with stepping in the ring to knock out his friend, Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KOs). The Filipino star is going to return on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The opponent has yet to be finalized.

At first Provodnikov was against the match, because their share the same trainer in Freddie Roach and they often sparred in the past. Later he changed his mind, and said he would immediately hunt for a new trainer if a Pacquiao fight got made.

"First, there is nothing wrong with this [fight], it's business. Boxing history has shown us many examples where best friends go out and fight with each other. Although we can't really call ourselves [best friends] with Manny - we were friends, we knew each other and we were always talking when we met. In that fight [with Brandon Rios], Manny showed that I have a good chance [to win]," Providnikov said to Russia Beyond The News.

I'd rather see Pac-Bradley 2 and Prov fight Marquez. Winners face off.

[QUOTE=john_uphold]On the inside where Ruslan shines, his punches are thrown very quick and tight. Now he looked quick enough in the Bradley fight, but in the Alvarado fight it was obvious he gained speed. How can you possibly explain why he has alot of speed though? All I can say is I have watch...

[QUOTE=chardrnm]Ruslan vs Pacquiao is a good match up. Offcourse anyone has a chance to beat each other. Ruslan will be there for Manny to get hit the question is if Ruslan hit Pacquiao with his best punch and how Manny will react to it. If both can take punches Pacquiao will have a better chance...
