Provodnikov vs. Mike Alvarado possible Oct 19th in Denver


Recommended Posts

A match-up between WBO interim light welterweight champion Mike Alvarado (34-1, 23 KO’s) and Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2, 15 KO’s) is possible for October 19th in Denver for a fight that could be televised on HBO, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is working on putting the fight together.


It’s still early to know whether he can pull this fight off, but it’s looking good thus far. One thing that isn’t known is what weight class the fight will take place at.


Provodnikov fights at welterweight, whereas Alvarado is still fighting at 140 despite being huge for that weight. It’s probable that Provodnikov would be asked to come down in weight to fight Alvarado rather than him coming up in weight, especially given that the fight will be taking place in Denver.


Rafael said on his twitter: “Arum also told me that he is close to a deal for @MileHighMike303 [Alvarado] to fight @ruslan Provod on Oct. 19 in Denver on @HBOboxing.”
