Alvarado Declares War On Provodnikov

WBO jr welterweight world champion Mike Alvarado has declared war on #1 contender Ruslan Provodnikov when they face each other on a HBO-televised showdown in Denver on Saturday night.


Speaking at media conference call earlier today Alvarado said: “This fight has ‘war’ written all over it…there’s a chance this fight could turn into that. I have a good game plan. I know I’m going to box the way I need to to win this fight, but you never know. This fight could always turn into a crazy war.”


Provodnikov is also ready for war, promising: “I am ready for anything. I can also box. I don’t think anybody can run from me and I don’t think he will box as well as he thinks.”


Promoter Bob Arum is also delighted with this fight taking place as it was one of the easier fights to sell: “There’s not much I can say as a promoter. I don’t have to sell this fight. Anyone that knows anything about boxing knows that going in this fight is going to be a candidate for fight of the year. Two great warriors, two guys that entertain the public, you don’t need a sales pitch for this one.”
