Alvarado-Provodnikov is 'made'


Recommended Posts

Looks like another war is coming :ltup

 

Mike Alvarado and Ruslan Provodnikov have agreed to terms for an HBO-televised clash for Alvarado's 140-pound WBO belt that will take place at on Oct. 19 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo., near Alvardo's hometown of Thornton, Top Rank President Todd duBoef informed RingTV.com on Thursday.
 
Duboef broke the news on his Twitter acount: "Congrats to @MileHighMike303 for agreeing to terms for an Oct 19 match against @RuslanProvod on @HBO at Denver's 1st Bank Center."
"It just happened a second ago with Alvarado. It just got made," said duBoef. "Just as I was closing it with Mike Alvarado, I asked him, 'Do you want to tweet it out?' And he said, 'No, you tweet it out.' So I tweeted it out about seven minutes ago. Everyone has agreed to all of the terms."
 
Provodnikov is coming off a unanimous decision loss in March to WBO beltholder Tim Bradley, whom Provodnikov dropped in the 12th round. Alvarado was last in the ring for a unanimous-decision win over Brandon Rios in March that avenged his seventh-round stoppage loss to Rios in a Fight of The Year-caliber bout in October of last year.
 
"This is a great fight. Stylistically, it's a great a matchup as you're going to see," said duBoef of Alvarado-Provodnikov. "I mean, it's for the same reason that people were clamoring for Rios-Alvarado, this is just something that shows to everybody out there that if you take on the challenges, and you put on great performances, win or lose, you will always be giving the fans something that they want.
"Both Mike and Ruslan have had big matches where they lost, but they came back. Ruslan wants to come back after the Bradley fight. And he's getting the chance. He's got a great opportunity. You have a style like his, there will always be opportunities for you."
Although Provodnikov (22-2, 15 knockouts) already had agreed to face Alvarado (34-1, 23 KOs), the latter hadexpressed discontent over the money being offered by Top Rank, even as his co-manager, Henry Delgado, had expressed "faith that the fight will happen."

numbers don't matter? You are retarded they do. sergio vs Manny was never discussed? Google it moron and Google whose belt Manny won in Dallas cause it was Sergio's.

Fuck you fag

You are scum sucking faggot ass racist I spit fact you spit garbage you should google cause you don't know shit

Alvarado has never gotten special treatment, Top Rank probably want Mike to lose so they don't have to give him Manny.

Doesn't matter, he's still American-Prov isn't.

The same reason he claimed Alvarado was hurt and couldn't fight Manny it's not a fight Manny wants.

And why is that? Because he's not a big enough name or because he'd cause him too much trouble?

A mix of both, Manny picked the Morales-Raheem loser for the same reason, if you want to say Raheem and Alvarado couldn't beat him that's fair but they did earn those fights

Yep indeed! but most of the boxers that pass the commission's basic tests would flunk out on some "detailed" "random"  "Olympic style" "VADA" tests :tup

More bullshit....Floyd pointed the finger then refused to get on the stand to substantiate his allegations and the settlement cost him 114,000 in costs, so wake up and smell the coffee....your boy ran a country mile from any proposed fight and that my friend is a fact!
