Provodnikov vs. DeMarco in Play For June Showdown?

By Salvador Rodriguez

According to sources in Mexico, former WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco is being mentioned as a potential opponent for WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov. The Siberian champion's return is being targeted for June 14th on HBO. Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) had hoped to fight Brandon Rios, but there are issues with the weight as Rios is unable to get to 140-pounds. DeMarco (30-3-1, 23 KOs), now competing at 140-pounds, is looking to secure a major title shot.

The only problem in making Provodnikov-DeMarco, if there is one, is that both fighters are trained by Freddie Roach - an issue which also came up when Provodnikov was being pursued to fight Manny Pacquiao in April.

Demarco? That's bad news for him. Prov is going to steamroll right through him. Prov by KO by the 5th

[QUOTE=Southpawology]Brandon Rios[/QUOTE] Just what happened with the Rios offer? Does anyone know why that didn't get made (although TBF this isn't yet either is it)? Is there any kinda information - was any formal offer made or what? OK it may have resulted in permanent damage to both fighter...

DeMarco gets absolutely wrecked by the Siberian Rocky.
