    Ruslan against the Hawk & Boom Boom 15 rounders.
    I think he proves too viscious for Boom and stops him in 7 at 140.
    Against Pryor he loses by stoppage in an absolutely ferocious fight of the year war.

    Absolutely no chance he goes 15 with Pryor. Either the ref or his corner would stop it long before.

    He goes the distance with Pryor he'll get hit with 1,200 punches

    Pryor stops him. Too much skill. Mancini outboxes him to win a clear decision, though Provodnikov has moments along the way.

    Both those guys were a level better than Provodnikov and hit a hit a hell of a lot harder than Tim Bradley. Ray Mancini decisions him in a war.
    Pryor literally runs circles around him and burys him in volume. Probably stops him.

    I seriously doubt Provo goes the distance with Pryor.

    The Hawk would completely destroy his face. I think he gets stopped, after Aaron turns him into a swollen, bloody mess.

    I feel like people are saying Provodkinov gets stopped to put over Aaron Pryor's greatness but Prov had one of the best chins ever in the lighter weights, did he ever get knocked down? People did go the final bell with Pryor and the only way Provodkinov gets stopped would be more likely to cuts than being dropped.
