Provodnikov's Manager Reacts To Golovkin's Comments

By Yuri Tarantin

In a recent interview with BoxingScene.com's Chris Robinson, WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin stated that WBO 140-pound king Ruslan Provodnikov had absolutely "no chance" to defeat eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao, who returns on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Provodnikov is one the two fighters being considered to face Pacquiao on the April date.

"I know Ruslan and I respect him, but I think he is nothing for Manny. He is nothing. He don't have a chance with Manny. No chance. This is boxing, you know...I think he would be no problem for Manny," Golovkin said.

Provodnikov's manager, Vadim Kornilov, reacted to the comments from Golovkin.

"We are very respectful to the fact that our friend Gennady Golovkin shared his opinion about Ruslan's chances against Manny Pacquiao. Let's agree to differ. Although, in my opinion, any professional knows that in boxing there is always a chance [to win]," Kornilov said.

I don't think he's wrong. Ruslan has no chance of beating Pac except for a punchers chance...and every boxer has that in any fight their in. Even at this point Pacs far beyond ruslan.

Golovkin's words seem very harsh but lets remember how awful GGG's English is currently. I don't think he was trying to bash Ruslan at all, and it probably came out sounding worse than what he actually meant.

Provodnikov and his manager aren't dumb, they know full well that they have no chance against Manny. It's the reason why they initially attempted to turn the fight down.

[QUOTE=john_uphold;14110967] Provodnikov on the other hand.. No easy task as some may believe. I am a backer of Provodnikov, and believe he can win this fight, and has the skills to pull it off.[/QUOTE] I think Provo is more likely…
