Rios would take a bad beating, which is the last thing that guy needs at this point of his career. I would much rather see Provodnikov fight Maidana. Why not? They are both champions coming off of victories (unlike Rios). Now that would be a hell of a fight!

will anybody ever dare explain why Cotto rejected Canelo’s $10 million challenge? . . . AGAIN?

Posted February 7, 2014 5:42 pm 


or what would be the guidelines of the card?

For floyd fight they will put 1 big undercard just like they did with Floyd vs canelo oil.

So how do we know who pulls more ppv on there own?

Posted February 7, 2014 12:18 am 



Even if we bet who’s fight will do better ppv number, how do we follow through that bet?

I mean u would just change ur user name.

Posted February 7, 2014 12:15 am 


I have common sense.
There are more ppl who want to watch floyd loose then to watch a great fight.

Posted February 7, 2014 12:12 am 



We notice you never said that MP/TB2 will do bigger PPV#’s!

LMFAO you big CHUMP!

MP vs TM 2 will do great at ppv.
MP VS TM 2 will be a much better fight to watch then who ever floyd fights.

Floyd should keep doing this polling idea and then blame his fans for choosing bums as his opponents.

@Cheatin Chihuahuas De Messyhoe
Is that why Danny Garcia CHOSE to STAY AWAY from the real COMPETITION at welter. I mean cause Brandon Rios went up to face Manny Pacquioa and Danny Garcia is set to face what?…… a taxi driver. Yea, real champs or should I say chumps there. Until Danny Garcia goes up and faces someone like Pacquioa, stay quiet, you sound retarded at times.

Posted February 6, 2014 9:40 pm 

Danny blows and Public Enemy swallows

At least Brandon Rios has the cajones to step up in weight at WELTER to face the russian. Danny Garcia runs to his “supposively country” and face an unknown fighter. Danny says ” Ah hell Im staying at lightweight, those welterweight fighters have too much balls for me.” Let me fight this taxi cab driver and impress my fans here in Puerco Chico. Typical puerco rican chicas.

Liver Shot

Cheatin Chihuahuas De Messyhoe : don’t sell Angulo short he might thump the over hyped Canelo. Angulo’s nickname is the dog, that dog might just bite Canelo in the ass. Canelo has Tommy Morrison Syndrom (May he RIP) After 4 rounds he’s breathing through his mouth and loses steam. Angulo thumps for 12 rounds. If that fight is close, I can see some ugly score cards that have us going WTF? I don’t dislike Canelo, I just haven’t seen him beat anyone of stature. His decision over Trout was a little on the ify side.

When they make fights like this, a certain % of each ticket/TV subscription should go to each fighters future healthcare.

Good value these two.

Posted February 6, 2014 7:08 pm 


This Russian fighter hits alot harder than manny pac…
Did pac… hurt Bradley when they fought ?? Not that I know of.
The Russian hurt Bradley multiple times.

Rios and avarodo are pretty evenly matched yet the Russian put a serious beat down on avarodo, I cant see rios doing anything better than avarodo against the Russian.

Tim Bradley in a interview said that the Russian hits harder than anyone he has ever fought in his entire boxing carrer.

If the Russian comes to fight “if” and it go’s the distance, Rios could have some brain damage as a result of this fight.

Posted February 6, 2014 5:37 pm 


the pic of Rios says it all. The guy already looks semi retarded from the amount of beat downs he’s received and he’s not even in his 30s yet! A very limited boxer who should retire on his winnings but unfortunately not enough brain cells left to understand when to get out.

Posted February 6, 2014 3:15 pm 


Rios just had to very difficult, physically taxing fights in a row vs. Alvarado and Pacquiao. Now Top Ranks wants to put him in there vs. Provodnikov? Wow. I guess they’re looking to cash him out.

There doesn’t appear to be a strong enough dose of Ritalin to slam a lid on Public Enema’s pathological tr*lling, multiposting, and rabid hate-on for people he desperately envies. What a spectacular and humorless display of imbecility this sicko has been dumping on these boards for the past several months and I have concluded that he’s a mental and emotional trainwreck. Only morbidity can explain anybody enjoying “Messyhoe’s” alter-ego push pins into him like a voodoo doll producing the predictable foaming-at-the-mouth and paranoid reaction from thee “Messyhoe” (lol). Like watching a mad animal compulsively chasing it’s own tail because of a parasite eating into it’s brain . . . I’m that parasite.

What fight did this thread see? Bradley clearly beat Ruslan the scorecards werent off. Hell Roach wanted the fight stopped early on. He didnt want it stopped cause his boy was whooping up on Bradley he wanted to stop it because his boy was getting his ass whooped. Did Ruslan land some wicked ass punches you bet your ass he did. Were they the hardes punches that Bradely ever felt? For sure!. But did was Ruslan getting battered in every round Fk yeah. Dont hete fellas i too felt Bradley lost against Pac but he clearly beat Ruslan and Freddy Roach wouldnt agrue with that.

Posted February 6, 2014 10:51 am

Why in the F does Canelo deserve a rematch? A rematch fight is if there was a controversial win, draw, or a very close fight. None of those factors are met in his loss against Floyd. Some idiots have gone as far to say that he threw the fight. What did Canelo gain by throwing a fight? if you’re gonna throw a fight i would think you would want to look just a little better than what he did. Not the case here. Canelo showed to be turdfully slow compared to Floyds lighting speed. Floyd made him look like a C class fighter. I will say I expected more especially they way Canelo fought against Trout. Nonetheless Canelo had his chance, he looked horrible and Floyd as much as you hate him WON! End of that chapter. Next!

Rios’ career will be over once Ruslan is done with him. Both of them are straght forward fighters no science in their styles. There will be a KO it’s just not going to be Ruslan on the canvas. Rios & Ruslan are TV friendly their fights are attractive putting both in the same ring will be a travisty for Rios. Rios has had too many world class fights. Early in life this kid will be eating his food through a straw.

Posted February 6, 2014 10:30 am 


If Rios beats Provo or is close it would show how good Manny is

Posted February 6, 2014 8:36 am 


It’s funny Floyd notices that we don’t really care for the khan fight so instead of just going with someone else he asks us to vote , now I don’t want to say polls can be bought but I don’t see that many people wanting him to fight khan but that’s just me.

Posted February 6, 2014 7:13 am 


Khan on 48%, Maidana on 52%. Guys, Khan is going to overtake Maidana and get the fight. We have to spread the word and get Maidana more votes, come on guys, Khan doesn’t belong anywhere near Floyd. Spread the word!!!

Mikey and Rios won’t fight? Like brothers isn’t the same as being brothers. If daddy Arum tells Rios 2 fight Mikey of course it would happen….both wont turn down $$$$$. Apart from that who hasn’t fought there Brother growing up? Of course Arum is going 2 put his up in coming cash cow in with a guy who’s on the slide…

some good comments,and the usual nonsense. i agree provo should fight swift garcia because for some crazy reason i like to see titles unified and one champion but thats just not the way boxing works. it is a circus side show that borders on the obscene and professional wrestling because of greedy egotist promoters,sanctioning bodies,sanctioning fees,site fees,blah,blah,blah. bottom line provo was robbed against bradley and so was the new enigma pacquiao. so anyhoo,provo vs. rios is looking likely and what we have is 2 fighters who don’t take a step backwards and yes,it should be the undercard of pac vs. bradley. i agree with the one post that brandon rios is a f***ing warrior. but what we have with provodnikov is the same with more power,and a higher skill set. if i were to have my choice of who to go out to a pub,bar,club,whatever,it would be rios. he definitely is a character. i hate to see him continue to be arum’s sacrificial lamb.but yes,i will watch the fight.

Posted February 6, 2014 3:35 am 


If Rob Arum was not robbing Mannys nutthuggers this fight would be on the undercard to Manny vs Bradley, but Top Skank/HBO is having non of that. Why make the event worthwhile PPV when you can rob the mtfs blind with inhouse rematches with crap undercards.

NO way !! ever !! will Brandon Rios fights Mikey Garcia ,never . these two guys are like brothers ..they both grew up together .

Posted February 6, 2014 2:20 am 


Provodnikov almost ended Bradley’s career, but was cheated by the judges and the referee. Provodnikov clearly knocked Bradley down, Bradley got up and fell down again………………..Provodnikov left Bradley on the canvas, but the judges gave a gift decision to their favorite boxer Bradly and they did the same to Pac after Pac clearly outboxed Bradly, landed two punches to Bradley’s one, but the judges gave the fight to Bradley anyway. Question is; Is it possible to win a decision over Bradley while Bradley’s judges are judging the fight? I think Pac can and will knock Bradley out, all it will take is one good punch and that will start Bradley’s downfall, but will the referee help Bradley up, call a knockdown a slip? I would not be surprised……….

Posted February 6, 2014 1:27 am 


Make the fight ASAP. Win or lose, Rios is going to be giving interviews like James Toney without the charm or memory of mr. lights out. If he wins, close UD. I just don’t see him having enough movement to land the same quality of shots that Ruslan will be throwing back at him. Ruslan may not be a slick fighter–understatement–but Ruslan MOVES like a mofo. He is constantly moving to get angles to KTFO his opponent. Alvarado tried to box Provodnikov to an even greater degree than in Rios-Alvarado II, but Provodnikov is much quicker than his foes anticipate. He cuts the ring off in such a way where the opponent must either engage or continue to trot around the ring. The way he got to Bradley was by quickly cutting off the ring, not in a stalking type of way, but more like trapping Bradley. Bradley evaded most of these attempts due to his speed and his boxing ability, but even he could not get away from brawling. Rios can win, but he will take a disgusting amount of damage.

I’ll watch it. Probably will be a great figth. In terms of ranking and hiearchy the fight makes no sense. As others have mentioned i would rather see him fight GBP fighters. I would like to see Provo fight Lucas or Danny Garcia. Those would be fight of the year events. I beleive Ruslan will box and move more vs Rios. More than people expect, He will do it because this is an opponent where he does not have to chase them.

This fight is a potential hazard to both guys. Provo will more than likely win, but he’ll take his share of damage too. I would rather see both guys face some GBP fighters, at this point. But since Arum’s stock pile has dwindled to near nothing, this fight has to happen…

provodnikov is a throwback fighter and leaves it all in the ring.i like brandon rios and he either learns from the pacquiao beating or he takes another beating.he fought the wrong fight against pacquiao,but either way he never beats pac. anything can happen in boxing.provo is there to be hit and personally it’s a good fight as long as it last. i would like to see brandon have an easier fight before provo as he has been in some really tough,tough fights. brandon is a tough kid and that may well be his have to go with provodnikov by 8 rd. tko.

Posted February 5, 2014 11:02 pm 


I like Brandon Rios, but no no no no this is a bad fight. Ruslan clearly won against Bradley in my opinion and if anyone missed the interview from Bradley when he clearly stated that he still felt the punches weeks later from Ruslan whooping, that speaks for itself. Just look at Ruslan last fight. He will knockout Rios for sure. Now if you told me Kirland and Ruslan, now thats a fight, both are animals when it comes to fighting. Infact Rios should fight Danny Garcia, that be a fight worth watching to me.

Fraud May, you have a short memory. Rios TKOd Alvarado in the 7th round in their first fight. It took Provodnikov 10 rounds to stop Alvarado. Alvarado won his second fight with Rios only because he was smart enough to get on his bike and not try to brawl with Brandon. Even so, it was a very close fight and a good number of people thought Rios won it.

And like I said, Rios IS a superb inside fighter.

Posted February 5, 2014 10:32 pm 


I wouldnt ride Rios off on this one, Manny and Alvarado arent exactly feather fists and as someone posted earlier Prov was looking pretty beat up after Bradley, I think Prov wins though because he has better puch technique.

Provo is easy to hit.. So it’s a pretty interesting fight.. Provo is a killer but he’s wide open.

Rios vs Provodnikov would be fun to watch as long as it lasts. Not a good fight for the human punching bag that is Brandon Rios. Yea, he may have stood up to Pacquiao but Provodkinpv is a bomber. Rios took a beating in China and his face proved it. I don’t care if he smiled all night long, those punches took there toll. Unless Rios can learn some side to side or show some sort of defense this fight could be a career ender for the young man. Two wars with Alvardo and a beating from Pacquiao followed by this fight? Rios might want to find a new promoter because they are looking out for their interest not his. Rios vs Alvarado III should be his next fight.
