Weights From NY: Provodnikov 139.8 Lb., Algieri 140 Lb.

By Jake Donovan

Ruslan Provodnikov and Chris Algieri both made weight for their 140 lb. title fight, which takes place Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Provodnikov (23-2, 16KO) came in at 139.8 lb. for the first defense of his alphabet title. Algieri (19-0, 8KO) weighed 140 lb. for his first title challenge. 

The bout will air live on HBO as part of a televised tripleheader. Also included on the live portion of the broadcast, Demetrius Andrade makes the first defense of his 154 lb. belt as he faces England’s Brian Rose.

Andrade (20-0, 13KO) tipped the scales at 153.8 lb in defense of the title he won last November in a 12-round split decision over Vanes Martirosyan. Rose was slightly lighter at 153.4 lb.

Opening the telecast, HBO presents the premiere of the exclusive rebroadcast of Miguel Cotto’s historic middleweight championship-winning effort over long-reigning champ Sergio Martinez. The bout headlined one week ago at Madison Square Garden, airing live on HBO Pay-Per-View.

Algieri and Rose both fight on HBO for the first time. Provodnikov makes his third consecutive network appearance, and first as the A-side of a promotion. Andrade appears on HBO for his second straight fight.
