Tonight, live from Brooklyn New York, WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov will make the first defense of his title against up and comer Chris Algieri. The fight promises to be intriguing as Provodnikov’s fights always are. This is a monumental step up in class for the light punching Algieri.
What will happen when they step into the ring? This fight will pan out very similar to most Provodnikov fights. Look for him to start off slow and drop many of the early rounds to the quicker more polished Algieri. At some point however, Provodnikov will start to catch Algieri and enforce his will. Algieri will not have the chin nor the power to deter him. Provodnikov by 7th round stoppage.
