Ruslan Provodnikov Given Sparring Invite By Amir Khan
By Ruslan Chikov
Hard punching junior welterweight Ruslan Provodnikov (21-1, 14KOs) has been given an invite to assist former champion Amir Khan with his ongoing training camp. Provodnikov was the chief-sparring partner of Manny Pacquiao as the WBO welterweight champion prepared for Saturday's fight against Timothy Bradley. Khan is training for a clash on July 14th against undefeated WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia. Freddie Roach is the trainer of Pacquiao, Khan and Provodnikov.
All they need is someone who is slow, throws wide hooks, hits decently hard and is tough...Comment by southpaw_07 on 06-07-2012
