This Saturday night, in an unlikely location; a war is going to take place. Broomfield, Colorado will host a scintillating junior welterweight, when Mike “Mile High” Alvarado defends his WBO junior welterweight title against the hard punching Ruslan Provodnikov. Mike Alvarado is coming off the most impressive win of his career, when he decision-ed Brandon Rios earlier this year. Provodnikov is also coming off the most impressive performance of his career, although in a fight that he did not win. Provodnikov beat up and nearly stopped WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, only to end up loosing a close unanimous decision.
What will happen come fight night? Stay tuned for an official prediction close to fight time; and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
