BOTH girls are hot, BUT the one on the right is the hottest to me. That being said, I would like to be the mayonnaise in both of their love sandwiches.Posted October 18, 2013 11:37 pm
Alvarado has a way better chin than Bradley & punches way harder than Bradley. I see Prov getting hurt early & stopped.Posted October 18, 2013 5:44 pm
Why would you expect this to become a brawl? Alvarado will have seen the Bradley fight and knows exactly what is in store for him if he goes toe-to-toe. Provodnikov will be the aggressor and may even get the knockout but this is going to be a long way from Gatti-WardPosted October 18, 2013 5:30 pm
Great fight both guys deserve to be headlining and getting paid good money. I got my beer ready can’t wait. The girl in blue is freaking hot.Posted October 18, 2013 4:34 pm
i agree that this matchup has FOY potential but i also believe that Alvarado will avoid a brutal dog-fight, if possible. IMO, he has the power and variety of punches to discourage indiscriminate swarming from Ruslan. even so, his already dented-chin figures to be checked at least a couple of more times but so will Ruslan’s. unlike Bradley, Alvarado has legitimate KO power. also, Provodknikov doesn’t figure to spring any surprises. he’ll be prepared to do what Roach fighters do best. fight and punch and be hit for 12 solid rounds. however, i seriously doubt that either Alvarado’s or Provodnikov’s killer-instincts will allow that. both are exceedingly capable of ending this bout within the distance.Posted October 18, 2013 4:22 pm
I don’t know who is more fake: Bob Arum or the fake smile on the girls behind himPosted October 18, 2013 4:08 pm
9There are sparring videos of ruslan vs pacman and man he gave pacman some problems.I think we will see alvardo use planA to stay outside box and get in and out but we will see ruslan catch and cut off the ring better than rios get in and out as well.about rounds 5 on we see get in and out with both but this time they trade and I’m sorry but alvarado can’t stay in the pocket as good as ruslan.so my pick and so is dwyers at gamblers advisory .com is simply alavarado by sd or straddle and ruslan by ko.I’m leaning on ruslan by stoppage around round 9 or 10Posted October 18, 2013 3:52 pm
I think to win, Alvarado will have to avoid a slug match at all costs. He will have to box the way he boxed against Rios. He also has good power which will help. Otherwise, it will be Provodnikov’s night.Posted October 18, 2013 2:46 pm
hate looking at the footage of the greedy crap talking promotersPosted October 18, 2013 2:28 pm
OH my goodness – thanks so much for the video. May watch this one 100 times. Go Mike go!Posted October 18, 2013 2:05 pm
I guess Boxtradamus is staying on the fence on this one.Posted October 18, 2013 1:24 pm
I got Ruslan by middle to late KO, regardless if Mike boxes or brawl; Provo too strong & relentless for Alvarado. Mike’s getting run-over by a bulldozer.Posted October 18, 2013 12:02 pm
Has anybody seen boxtradamus prediction on this one?Posted October 18, 2013 11:54 am
Mike boxed a great performance vs Rios in the rematch but still slugged a lot
Prvodnikov is a harder hitter than Rios but I don’t think he is as well conditioned and if Mike can stretch the fight out and fight a smart fight he might wear down Prvodnikov
Remember Provodnikov’s corner was getting ready to pull the plug around the 9th vs Bradley and Provodnikov is also a little bit of a bleeder being cut vs Herrera and Bradley.
I think it comes down to how difficult Mike makes this on himself, if he chooses to box he wins barring he isn’t caught by something big. If he goes to war I still give him a good chance seeing as he went to war with Rios pretty successfully but it would really diminish his advantages and amplify Ruslan’s best assestsPosted October 18, 2013 11:35 am
The question is:
Can Mike take Provodnikov’s shots?. If the answer is yes, the next question is All night long???Posted October 18, 2013 11:23 am
Provo for the win. Just like when he kicked Bradley’s ar$e.Posted October 18, 2013 10:18 am
I’m supposed to be rooting for Mike Alvarado but when I learned that Marvin Sumodio is the head trainer of Provodnikov in the absence of Freddie Roach this Saturday, I switched side, now I am for Provo win.Posted October 18, 2013 10:02 am
If Mike can avoid letting the home crowd push him into a slug fight he can take this fight. The BIG question is will his face /cuts allow him, if he decides to box, stay in for the final rounds.
Mike has more power than Bradley and I don’t see many talking about that point. Another BIG question is can the Russian handle the power of mile Mike?
This will be a good fight if Mike will BOX, if he decides to slug it out he is taking a big risk just like Bradley did that night.
I will be on the edge of my seat as this fight takes place Saturday. This might turn out to be better than the Bradley/Russian fight.Posted October 18, 2013 9:46 am
