Provodnikov's Return Eyed For June 14, Rios is Unlikely

The return of WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16KOs) is being targeted for June 14th, on HBO, according to his promoter Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions.

The "Siberian Rocky" is looking to pick up right where he left off, with his career-defining 2013. After having a "Fight of The Year" battle with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley in March, Provodnikov returned in October to stop Mike Alvarado in ten rounds to capture then WBO title.

Most fans were hoping that Provodnikov would face Brandon Rios, but Pelullo tells BoxingScene.com that a Rios fight is unlikely due to weight. Provodnikov wants to defend his title, and Pelullo was informed that Rios is unable to get down to 140-pounds.

Pelullo tells BoxingScene that his company will be looking very closely at the outcome of April's rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Bradley. Provodnikov was in the running to face Pacquiao, who ultimately decided on Bradley. And a rematch with Bradley is also at the top of Provodnikov's wish list.

So why not fight at catchweight?? I'm sure Rios would agree to 144 lbs. Besides, Provo didn't look too bad fighting at 147 when he fought Bradley. Prov can do what he wants but don't say JMM is ducking Prov when the Russian won't go out of his way to make a fight with Rios which is a fight every ...

He put BRADLEY in the worst night/fight of his carrer in a very close fight at 147 (draw is correct to me) and you called him a fraud who doesn't have the balls to fight RIOS at 147 ???? YOU ARE A JOKE,SAY THIS TO HIS FACE LITTLE KID!!![/QUOTE...

[QUOTE=Mugsy]Provodnikov one of the most overrated fighters of recent times. Who has he beaten, Alvarado? After several wars with Rios. There is no doubt Rios brutally stops this fraud if he had the cojones to fight him at 147. This guy got UD'd by Mauricio Herrera two years ago ffs. Seems to ...
