Default Provodnikov ready for Bradley

PHILADELPHIA, PA (October 1, 2012)—WBO Number-two ranked Jr. Welterweight contender Ruslan Provodnikov would like an opportunity at WBO Welterweight champion Timothy Bradley in December.

There have been rumblings of a possible matchup for Provodnikov, 22-1 with fifteen knockouts of facing Bradley and he and his team feel the time is now for the potential big fight.

The native of Beryozovo, Russia is one of the most exciting fighters in the world and he feels that not only is he ready but will bring the best out of Bradley.

“I am ready for this type of fight”, said Provodnikov

“I would be grateful for the opportunity and I have trained my whole life for this. Bradley is a great fighter but not only do I know I can win but I will bring the best out of him and our fight will be one to remember”

“We feel that Ruslan is ready for this fight and he will beat Bradley.”, said Provodnikov’s promoter Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions.

“Based on all the feedback we get after Ruslan’s fights, he is one of if not the most television friendly fighter out there and a fight with Bradley would be a great fight for the fans”

Provodnikov has won five straight bouts which includes his last outing when he stopped Jose Reynoso (16-3-1) on June 29th.

He's a very good fighter. I met him down the WildCard gym, sparred with Manny & Amir recently, really nice guy. Hope he gets the fight.

It'd be a fun fight but Bradley would outclass him without much issue.

I think it would be a fun fight for a few rounds.

Bradley will most likely take over and win at least 8-4, 9-3 if not better decision, barring the unexpected happening anyways

I like Provo, but I think Bradley's top five opponents would all beat him, let alone Bradley himself. Probably, it would be a good show, though. Honestly, though, Abregu/Provo would be more likely to produce a competitive scrap. And Abregu would not be on Bradley's list of top five opponents either.

I frankly have no interest in seeing this potential fight.

Considering that I'm likely going to attend this card, I really, really hope it doesn't get made.

Got my fingers crossed for either Berto or Guerrero.

Not offensive to me in the slightest. I just thought you were screwing around. I get it though. My job is similar in this respect.
