Provodnikov is a tough, exciting fighter that will give any 140-147 pounder a fight. This man does take a lot of punishment, but his tenacity and will to win separates him from the rest of the fighters. Any man that learns his trade from the greatest fighter of our time and of all time, Manny Pacquiao is bound for greatness even for a little while. Look at Shawn Porter. Just another example of what happens to fighters when they learn their trade working out and sparring with the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao has basically made at monster out of Provodnikov. He’s a beast that brings it every time he gets in the squared circle. No one really gives him much of a fight because he’s carved out his skills from the great one, Manny Pacquiao. I will say this to Ruslan Provodnikov, he best not over look Chris Algieri. Algieri doesn’t have all the quality skills, nor does he posess a lot of power, but he has ring smarts. If he can handle Provodnikov’s power, and that’s a big if, I think he can pull off a major upset. It’s going to be real tough to do, but there is a possibility. Look for a great fight.

Richard Schaefer, the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, has announced that he is leaving the Los Angeles-based company that he helped start 10 years ago, according to a press release sent out on Monday.

“After more than 10 years with Golden Boy, it is time to move on to the next chapter of my career. This decision has required a great deal of personal reflection, but ultimately, I concluded that I have no choice but to leave,” read the release.

“I have succeeded in banking, and I have succeeded in boxing, and I look forward to the next opportunity. I am proud to remain a shareholder, so I have a strong interest in the continued success of the company. I am proud of what we have accomplished at Golden Boy, but I now look forward to new challenges.”

Schaefer said he could not add any more to his comments, citing the advice of his attornies.

“The statement says it all,” Schaefer told “I’m going to be evaluating my options. It was just time to move on.”

Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza declined comment.

The announcement, which was first posted on the website did not state if Schaefer plans to continue to work as a promoter in the boxing business.

When you arrive at JFK airport with a name like Ruslan Prododnikov ,

Yes you WILL get a full internal search and get fisted by “Home Security”

I would just like to know why he looks so happy about it . . .
