This past Saturday night Ruslan Provodnikov lost his WBO junior welterweight title by split decision to Chris Algieri. The decision has been hotly debated in the aftermath and media members were split in informal polls after the fight in regards to who they believe should have been the victor.

Algieri was knocked down twice in the first round and had his eye swollen shut but adjusted well after the knockdowns to outbox Provodnikov in many of the rounds.

In many ways it came down to quality versus quantity. Provodnikov landed the more damaging blows while Aligieri landed the higher number of punches.

Provodnikov's team has a rematch clause available that they can exercise and in a recent conversation with Boxingscene.com, Provodnikov's manager Vadim Kornilov appears to be leaning in that direction. He also said that he wants the rematch in a more neutral location. The first fight took place in Brooklyn, a short distance from Aligieri's hometown of Long Island.

"We will think everything over and review. I think a rematch is necessary and we have to do it in a neutral territory.

"I'm not going to say let's do the fight in Russia. We always have to make sure that when Ruslan is fighting the opponent is given some advantage, but neutral territory should at least account for fair judging," Kornilov told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=kombayn]How is Barclays Center not a neutral site? Brooklyn has a huge Russian population and Algeri is from Long Island. Anyways, hold the fight at the Forum, I would go. Chris Algeri vs. Ruslan Provodnikov II Demetrius Andrade vs. Joshua Clottey Make it happen![/QUOTE] :cool2: ...

I'd rather see Provodnikov-Bradley II. That was a closer, more exciting fight. They are both coming off losses.
