Top Rank Has Option to Co-Promote One Provodnikov Bout

by David P. Greisman

Though there is not a rematch clause mandating another bout between Mike Alvarado and Ruslan Provodnikov, that doesn’t mean a rematch isn’t still a possibility, according to Provodnikov’s promoter, Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions.

“There’s a one-fight option with Top Rank. We’ll co-promote,” Pelullo told BoxingScene.com after Provodnikov’s 10th-round stoppage of Alvarado on Saturday night in Broomfield, Colo. “It could be a rematch, absolutely.”

Precisely what happens with Provodnikov, Banner Promotions and Top Rank will be determined by the two promoters, he said.

“We’ll find out when we decide together,” Pelullo said.

As for whether Pelullo would like Provodnikov-Alvarado 2 to take place?

“I think I would do what’s best for all concerns,” he said. “I think Alvarado, if he wants a rematch and Ruslan agrees, I think he should get one.”

Alvarado struggled to make the 140 weight, wasn't he? Plus: Mike can't show anything new, other than he already showed on Saturday night... Provodnikov isn't just a slugger or a 'beast" -- he was quite savvy in cutting the ring…

[QUOTE=The Weebler I;13859870]People say stuff like this about Arum all the time, the worst part is it seems like they mean it. Anyway, I don't want to see Alvarado v Provo next. I'd rather watch Rios v Provodnikov at 140…

[QUOTE=Carpe Diem;13859875]Ruslan vs Rios is a better fight even though i think Ruslan would win by TKO. It'd be a straight up bulldog fight with both fighters coming forward and exchanging punches.[/QUOTE] Rios is going to be damaged beyond repair…

Don't think mike wants anything to do with Provo.

Arum maybe a slimball, but a dumb businessman he is not. If ruslan would have lost, the option would have been dropped like mosley when he lost to Pac.
