Provodnikov's Manager: Algieri Bout in NY Possible

By Yuri Tarantin

Negotiations for Ruslan Provodnikov's next fight has been ongoing for two rounds, according to the WBO champion's manager Vadim Kornilov. Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) is scheduled to make the first defense of his title on June 14th. Several names have been mentioned over the last few weeks, including Brandon Rios, Antonio DeMarco and Hank Lundy, but Kornilov says undefeated Chris Algieri (19-0, 8KOs) is potentially going to be the HBO televised opponent.

"The fight will be on June 14. We've already held negotiations with potential rivals for two months. This week, we need to find out who Ruslan's next opponent will be. Possibly Ruslan's opponent will be Algieri. The fight will likely be held in New York," Kornilov said.

Rios and JCC Jr are in the same boat as far as I am concerned. And that ship has sailed and I only care to see it going into retirement. Both shop worn and underwhelming once they outgrew their bodies…

Right now, boxing fans are getting milked by bad breast feeders.....Provodnikov don't wanna see Rios for whatever reason....Marquez been fighting above 140 for years but he still was begging for a bone....Rios has one fight at WW and now all…
