An easy fight for Prod for once.
But very low caliber opponent.
Muy novato este Alvarez para semejante rival.Le erraron los manejadores de este ex invito.Ruslan de todas formas,sigue recibiendo muchos golpes,no ha mejorado su defenza,y confia en su fisico.Creo ha llegado a su tope.Saludos
I like Provodnikov a lot, it was about time he got an easy opponent in front of him to get some confidence back. They found an opponent with a blown-up record who did just the trick.
A fight a little bit slow on the first two rounds gaining action only during the 3 round.
Good win for Provodnikov beating a reasonable boxer but with low exposure in the ring and most likely with previous low degree opposition for his nice record..
