I love you hecdog for sticking up for Pacquiao. I’m sorry Chris Algieri you are cute but Paccy will whuuup on you all nite long. I do have to say no one is as cute as Provo my Siberian tiger :) muah !!

Chris Algieri has the audacity to challenge the greatest pure fighter in the history of boxing, Manny ” Pac Man” Pacquiao? Algieri needs to be slapped until he passes out so that he can feel and understand what he would end up like should he face the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Manny may be the nicest person in the world outside the ring, but don’t for a moment think he’s not the most devastating fighter on the planet today and has been for the last 10 years. Allergy has no chance whatsoever, and if he thinks just because he won a questionable win against Provodnikov he has any chance against the monster that is Manny Pacquiao, he’s going to get a very rude awakening in a hospital nearby. Look, I admire Allergy for having the fighting spirit and toughness to deal with that first round and boxing well for the remainder of the fight, hats off to him. He seems like a nice kid and he deserves a good pay day, but asking to fight Manny Pacquiao is like asking to fight a Great White Shark blind folded with arms and legs tied up. There is no hope, and I do not want to see a massacre like Jake Lamotta had years ago. People must understand that Manny Pacquiao is not your ordinary fighter. How many people lose to a Ped Punching, Ped hiring fighter like Ped Man Marquez and come back and beat a former unbeaten champion in Brandon Rios and then follow that by beating the top welterweight in the division with ease. I know, no one! Manny Pacquiao is a dynamite ready to explode. Why do you think Ped Man Marquez and Mayweather want no part of Manny Pacquiao. One fears for his life and gives a million excuses even runs to prison just to avoid fighting Manny Pacquiao, and the other comes out with some outrageous $20 million pay day he will never get because he doesn’t draw flies to his fights. No one wants to step in the ring with this ferocious, fearless lion. Manny is carrying boxing today and has been for years. Timothy Bradley said it best. “Manny is the best because he fights the best out there.” Allergy, please do yourself a favor and go fight someone more on your level. You have no idea what your asking by wanting to fight Manny Pacquiao. And I for one will protest this fight out of fear that Chris may come out on a stretcher. I don’t want to see him or anyone else hurt. There is only one man that can overcome those types of incidenst that happen inside a ring. Manny Pacquiao already proved that by coming back and beating Rios and Bradley, both top notch fighters and former champions. Someone please show this young man tapes of Manny’s fights against Cotto, Hatton, Barrera, Morales, Marquez. Diaz, De La Hoya and maybe he will think it over because he’s a smart young man and decide to apologize to Many Pacquiao and fight someone else. If you dare challenge Manny Pacquiao, you best have your life in order. Manny Pacquiao has recently been scouting Islands for retirement, so whoever gets an opportunity to fight him is going to take a beating. Trust me when I say this, Manny Pacquiao is a dangerous fighter that fears no one and will win a 9th division title soon. Manny is the best!!

@Floyd lost to Maidana…Did you fall and hit your head? You can’t beat a undefeated champion rabbit punching behind the head, hitting below the belt, head butting, kneeing, fighting dirty. That crap might work outside the bar, but in a prize fight forget it. Landed 28pct. compared to 54pct. Get a different handle…have a nice day!

I watched the fight and I agree with the two judges. Provodikov won round 1 (10-7), 6, 11 and 12. Algieri won the rest of the rounds.

Provodikov is very one dimensional and was even losing the 1st before scoring the two knockdowns.

The judge who scored it 117-109 for Provodikov should be banned for life!!!

Provodikov needs to learn the basic of box, i.e use the jab as a measuring tool before throwing the hook or left/right hand. He reminds me of Earnie Shavers – Power with no skills.

I would say Algieri is a better boxer than floyd last night due to him out-winning Provo who is a much stronger version of Maidana. Imagine if that was floyd last night….Floyd would be in a hell of a lot of trouble.

Bob, jabs, hooks and straight rights from Algeri were scoring punches they were not thrown amateur style, the man just does not have heavy hands… BUT they were heavy ENOUGH to keep Provo occupied after the first and get him the “W” Malignaggi was not a big puncher but he was World Class and won many contests..

Posted June 15, 2014 9:12 pm 


TARK

I wouldn’t call Algieri a good boxer right now. He’s a vastly improved boxer from what I saw 3 years ago. He’s come a long way in a short time.

His feet are a hair wide. His balance can get better. He can get much smoother. His feints can be more subtle. He loads a little sometimes, and he needs more physical strength for sure.

He reminds me of Shawn Porter a couple of years ago. Porter was super excited and trying to be busy every second.. Porter’s balance, timing, and temperament improved tons in his last few fight.. He’s very relaxed and smooth, and physically stronger than ever..

Algieri just has to keep working hard on his weaknesses and believe that he can get a lot better. He has the athletic ability and brain to be a great boxer if he really goes for it.

Boxing just isn’t the same unless Manny Pacquiao is fighting. He brings power, speed, agility, ring smarts and electrifying excitement to his fights. Manny would have crushed either guy last night. Provodnikov has power, takes a good punch and is mentally strong, but Manny would have stopped him inside of 7 rounds. Algieri would have been stopped by Manny Pacquiao in 2 rounds. Both of these fighters ar enot in Manny’s league by far. Freddie doesn’t have to worry about being in either guy’s corner, but he should still be apologizing to Manny Pacquiao for making such a dumb statement. Currently, no 140-168 pound fighter is asking for a fight with Manny Pacquiao, and we all know why. Manny is a threat at stopping anyone. Algieri has actually said he welcomes a fight with Manny Pacquiao. If he does end up fighting Manny in Macau, he best make sure there’s a hospital and emergency ambulance at the arena. Algieri has no business stepping within a 10 miles of Manny Pacquiao unless he wants to get hurt. The same goes for the following fighters: Mikey Garcia, Danny Garcia, Keith Thurman, Canelo Alvarez, Floyd Mayweather, GGG, Andre Ward, Andrade, Quillin and the rest of those good decent boxers. Manny Pacquiao is head and shoulders above all of them. Last night’s fight went as I predicted, and I don’t predict much, but I know one thing for sure, trust me on this, Manny Pacquiao will beat the guys I mentioned. Manny is the best, and if boxing is to remain alive and relevant in the sporting world, he needs to come back soon.

It’s the dream of every unsophisticated, blue collar fight fan that all boxers be forced to just stand and make their chins available so that a skills deficit cannot be exploited in face first high contact fighters… It takes guts and ring IQ to adjust and find an avenue to victory, Algeria was hitting Provodnikov PLENTY and they were not pitty pat shots, they were professional combo’ she just lacks the power of Ruslan but it did not matter because he eventually took away Provo’s best asset (his power) by not letting him set and punch while using his distance to strike.. That’s not running, it’s boxing..

lionking was spot on with his post. boxing fans like any market have a market share and latino’s are the biggest followed by the african americans. whites are def more into mma and everybody knows that piechucker. unless your a recluse and do not even follow boxing astutely.

i mean even your computer can tell u as much if your using it to follow boxing.

has nothing to do with what color we bleed weirdo. its not some racial pride statement. its the fact of the market share son
Posted June 15, 2014 2:54 am

Of course it has everything to do with race, nationality, ethnicity, color and all that. And the market share that you speak of is largely drivin by those factors- race, nationality, ethnicity, etc. The fact that latinos has the biggest “market share” is just making that point, because boxing in America is largely a latino sports now. And the reason it got to that is because people cheer for their own.despite what anyone would say otherwise. Fact is all these so called “Us Boxing fans” or self professing boxing fans are all cheerleaders cheering for their kind regardless if they deny it or not.

Algeri has some serious balls, his eye was a wreck early and the guy adjusted, stayed off the deck and outboxed Provo for the balance of the fight.. Freddy Roach knew that Provo was going for the KO and was getting out hustled this reminds me a bit of PAC vs Marquez 1 where the KO’s in the first kept one of the guys head hunting instead of boxing and mixing the attack..

I am becoming more unimpressed with HBO’s performance than any of the boxers. Between rounds ESPN boxing can show a commercial, show some of both corner’s instructions, and still show relevant action from the previous round. HBO does not have to show any commercials, and still for the most part, only showed the corner of Chris. It would have been interesting to see what Roach was telling Ruslan in those middle rounds. Also, from the previous week, between the first and second round, the first round replay never showed that first big left hook that wobbled Martinez. Their ring-side score keeper is nothing special either, but at least he admits that another judge could see the fight completely differently and still have a respectable score card. Good thing Ward stayed true to the sport.

Posted June 15, 2014 4:14 pm 


Informer

That first round was the worst thing that could have happened to Ruslan. He completely abandoned the right hand, chasing after that swollen eye. It turned him into a one-armed boxer. He stopped cutting the ring off and stopped throwing the right hand, then stopped punching altogether. I wanted Ruslan to win, but he did not get the job done. I don’t even think he landed as much punches as the punch stats claimed. I was not as impressed with Chris’s boxing as much as JIm and Max were. Unless he is very selective in his opponents, he probably won’t hold onto the belt for long unless he ups his game.

Guys like Matthysse would be too much for Algieri but I was wrong about the Kid last night so… who knows? Soto-karras would be a good measuring stick for Algieri’s future opponents/fights. How about Marquez vs Algieri??? hmmm… Marquez is actually a natural 140Lber with a pound or two to spare. Yeah, JMM vs Chris “The New Kid On The Block” Algieri!!

My post before the fight.

Algieri has some decent skills that could spring the upset only if he can handle and embrace the pressure of being in his first big fight and handle the relentless attack from a strong puncher like Provodnikov. Ruslan is a mentally tough fighter that breaks you down mentally and physically. He comes to fight. and as he says, he doesn’t like guys running, but he trains for them. Algieri IMO is going to hit Ruslan quite often, but I’m not sure he has a big enough punch to hurt the Siberian Rocky. Ruslan comes only one direction, has no defense and will take punches. Algieri is a bright guy outside the ring. He has to be even smarter inside against Ruslan. He has to be the real ROCKY in this fight because no one is giving him a chance. Ruslan has a lot of experience, and loves to fight especially when the tough gets going. Algieri has nevr fought anyone like this guy, but the smarter fighter sometimes beats the tougher fighter. Algieri has to get through the first five rounds in order to have a chance. If he does, look for the upset.

Q-vo EZ E. Rios, Mathysse, Soto-Karass, or even Thurman would be good matchups for Provodnikov to do what he does best. whether he’s able to do it better v. any of these guys remains to be seen but i’d look forward to any of those being Ruslan’s next bout. Herrera was the first to exploit Ruslan’s lack of technique but Bradley also did it on a much bigger stage and in a more memorable bout. Ruslan is more like the “Siberian Tyson” because he’s got the same strengths and weaknesses v. the same types of fighters. even Pacquiao* would be too fast and elusive for this powerpunching plodder . . .

Ruslan is a beast against less elusive fighters that are willing to trade like Alvarado, Popoca and a guy like Bradley to an extent. I picked Prov to win convincingly and maybe he actually did win UN-offically… but NOT COVINCINGLY. People (like me) forgot that Mauricio Herrera out boxed him a few years ago. A young JMM would’ve picked him apart & the older version will counter, out fox, out maneuver, out wit and out score Prov to victory. Paz y respeto!!

Nobody claim prov. was a world class fighter he just pure slugger, that once he learn to to set up his ko, cut the ring off, or hold in a cuench. Then he slowly becomes a starting slugger/ boxer, maidana did. It’s a transition, same as a boxer grow to survive.
But taken from a slugger vs a starting boxer view points it’s a fair fight, both starting, I had prov. winning and he get a knock down, really they should
Add a 13 th round on looks alone or body damage as indication. Algeiri face was disgusting to look at. 8 wins 3 loses now.

The PAC fan that wanted prov to win.reason was As that would set up a PAC fight. Now they is no reason to fight prov. it’s a lose and lose fight. Even if he beat him it’s a no credit win. and close or lost substrate from PAC history. and also no Money there.

Was the same as PAC and Marquez 3 th fight, I called another no win situation, but arum wanted the money.

Yeah some had this specific future mapped out for Provodikov as you can see by morons looking to grant him wins over Bradley who clearly beat him and this guy…Provo is not and never will be an elite fighter which is OK there are only a few, he will be around as an action fighter till his chin expires and hopefully make some good $$$$ in the process it sucks for him because a possible PAC Man shot SHOULD be out the window after losing to a guy with no name..

And in other news:

According to multiple industry insiders, Bruce Binkow, Chief Operating Officer of Golden Boy Promotions, officially resigned from his position. The news comes just weeks after the company lost it’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Schaefer, who announced his departure earlier this month.

This marks the second top executive to leave the promotional company, which President Oscar De La Hoya established back in 2002. Both men were instrumental in making Golden Boy Promotions one of the top two promotional companies in boxing. We’re told that Binkow walked out of the company yesterday, and apparently, he wasn’t the only one to leave as sources tell us that Richard Schaefer’s former secretary, Nicole Becerra, has also left.

Anonymous, Herrera is a good fighter. Actually, he’s better than good. I just meant that styles make fights and Provo will never beat a good boxer with decent pop. Alvarado is a catcher and made him look dynamite. A truer reflection of Provo is the one in the Herrera fight. Good in spots, hut it’s the fact people watch a guy once, perhaps twice and then nail him as the second coming. I like Provo as a person, but he’s limited and can be outboxed for long periods. Manny Pacquiao is probably cursing his luck right now. If Provo had won he’d have told Bob, “Make the fight!” Manny would totally outbox Provo and outhustle him and tie him up close up. Provo’s best bet is push for a rematch (but, I think Algieri will be a better fighter) or better still seek out a match with Brandon Rios. Provo will batter Rios for pillar to post and back again. I don’t know if he’d stop him, but he would give Rios the beating of his life and then everyone will be calling him a ‘beast’ again, until he runs into another decent boxer with some pop in his fists.

I don’t understand what the crying is about. Boxing is based on a points system and you have seen plenty of fights where the boxer wins with his jab alone. You don’t have to KO or even hurt your oponents you just need to score more points by landing shots in the designated point zones. Algiers did that and out boxed Prov. I don’t think Roach is a great trainer he just got some good fighters well basically 2 Pac and Cotto the rest of his fighters have not done squat in 20yrs.

Screwy Louie, I labeled Bradley as an idiot because for a man who stood right at the top flight of the sport to think he could beat Pacman by winging wide hooks was a seriously stupid game plan. In fact an idiotic gameplan. Actually it showed me there was no gameplan. He got to where he is in boxing by boxing and mixing it on the inside. He outboxed and countered Marquez, yet with no evidence he was a dynamite puncher at 140, somehow thought he could one punch KO Pac at 147. I’m sorry, hit Bradley has only surprised me by how far he’s come before he collected his first 0. He’s a nice guy, but I doubt he has the boxing brain to be at the top flight for too much longer.

Provodnikov was fighting against a one-eyed man with pillows for fists for 11 and a half rounds! I can’t keep laughing at all the lickers on here who were saying Provo is a beast. I watched him on FNF vs Herrera and he didn’t look a world beater, but because he beat up the idiot Bradley and crushed the punchbag Alvarado people were already crowning him as some sort of king. Styles make fights. Provo was outboxed by Herrera, Alvarado is no boxer. He is Mr. face-first. Bradley fought him for 11 and a half rounds on Queer Street and still managed to outbox him for long periods. I would love for Provo to face Danny Garcia, who is a guy who can punch or Matthysse. Neither guy will miss all night and both have lights out power. Provo will eat so much leather. He won’t win either.

Why are so many Roach fighters clueless? Absolutely clueless.

I’m surprised Bears isn’t on here. Probably too busy licking out Provo’s box.

I agree that Max Kellerman is an idiot.

He said that Cotto would be a favorite against everybody at 160 and 154 except for Golovkin.

That is stupid.

Cotto would not be favored vs. Alvarez.

Cotto would not favored vs. Quillen … Quillen is 6′ tall and has real pop

I agree that at this weight, Cotto would actually now be favored against Mayweather. But as you guys say, Cotto did not prove anything by taking 10 rounds to beat a guy who can barely walk.

KC you cant be serious that you think that was the correct scorecard 117-109. I admit Algieri was popping with his punches at times i would of liked to have seen more meat in his punches but Provodnikov was walking aimlessly forward with very poor defence no head movement no combinations had no answer for the movement and smothering of algieri i counted maybe 10-15 clean shots landed for Provodnikov in after the first round most were avoided ridden out smothered or simply half blocked he hits hard and the impact looked impressive even when blocked. I had it one round for algieri but if the Algieri didnt sustain the eye damage so early in the fight i feel it could of been by a wider margin.

Max Kellerman is a joke. How can he say the Cotto vs Martinez fight was Cotto’s best fight when he was boxing a washed up opponent? After every fight he asks the same moronic questions, “How did you feel when he hit you with that big left hook?”, ” Who do you want to fight next?”, “What were you thinking?” Blah, blah, blah.

I am glad Algieri won … on the other hand:

– I don’t know how Algieri won

Provodnikov had much lower output in most of the rounds — but where the punch output was close you have to give the round to Provodnikov because Provodnikov was hitting very big left hooks and right hands.

I understand that Algieri had a good jab, good upper cut and left hook. But he did not snap Provodnikov’s head back in every round.

So, I can’t possibly see how anybody could score 8-4 in rounds for Algieri — which is what judges who went 114-112 did.

An 8-4 score would say that Provodnikov won round 1 with 2 knockdowns and then ONLY 3 OTHER ROUNDS.

7-5 for Algieri which would be 113-113 draw is possible but even that is a stretch. 6-6 even in rounds is a more fair score which would be a 114-112 win for Provodnikov.

So, I am glad Algieri won. But I don’t really think he did win. Draw or a slim win for Provodnikov would be more fair.

Decisions like this are what make me disgusted with my own sport. The one judge that scored it 117-109 got it right. Effective aggression and punches that actually get the other fighters attention are what counts. I commend Algieri on his courage for finding a way to run, shoeshine and pitter pat his way to survival, but bravely surviving a massive beat down does not make him a winner. When a judge decides between volume of punches and power punches they show always use the standard of ‘which fighter would you rather have been’ in each round. Algieri never hit Provodnikov with anything that he noticed more than a house fly buzzing around him, while he in turn was hitting with the hammer of Thor in every round. Algieri had a great chin but he took such a beating he broke an orbital bone in his skull and his nose and ended up in the hospital. It seems that the only way Arum’s judges were going to give it to Provodnikov were if he’d killed Algieri in the ring.

Ruslan did show some of his weaknesses tonight. Mainly he just needs to let his hands go. Work on a better punch variety and not wait to be set to punch. He WAS in distance to punch and he was cutting off the ring, but he waits to much. Ruslan has the same strengths and weaknesses as David Tua. He can look devastating in small stretches and then he takes time off where you wonder ” is he stupid?”. Provo’s hands are not slow, but the time in which he decides whether are not to let them go is sorta delayed he needs to speed up his intiative and be first. I thought he did enough to win. But he needs to improve his style. What could really hurt him is when he runs into someone who can box and move as well as hold and tie him up. Algiery did not hold at all. A prime Ricky hatton would have battered the crap out of Ruslan with his maul and hold strategy. I do not like how Ruslan waits a whole second before punching when he is right in front of you.

Provo should have won the fight and it was not a difficult fight to score. Here is the deal folks, there are two factors that come to mind. When you have a boxer vs a slugger you have to establish if the boxer is in command of the fight, Algerie was not in command he did not dictate the fight and he threw “don’t hit me” punches. He was in a mid speed back pedal the whole night. Ruslan controlled the fight. The next issue is damage done. 205 to 280 punches landed, ok got that. Let me ask you this how many Algiery punches do you think it takes to equal the power, weight, velocity, and damage of one Provodnikov punch if we averaged it all out ? Is it 3 to 1 or more like 4 or 5 to 1? It sure the hell ain’t 1.33 to 1.00 because that is all Algiery outlanded Ruslan by. And then factor in 2 knockdowns. This was a lousy decision. Difficult decicions are ones in where there is a lot of two way action where both fighters get work done.

What a joke as this is the type of fight HBO as one judge had it 117-109 to the Champion Rusian as this was the correct score as your commentator had as I thought the challenger had to beat the champion to get the belt as Rusian got HOME TOWNED. Algieri was even shocked he won as he thought he lost. I hope the boxing world does not black ball Rusian as I am still a big fan of Rusian. He deserves better.

I think the judges that had the fight 114-112 were right on the money. Back in 68 the referee and lone judge of the Jimmy Ellis – Floyd Patterson fight, Harold Valen made a very good argument why he scored it 9-6 for Ellis, when many felt that Patterson had won. People pointed out the faces of the fighters, and how busted up Ellis looked. But as Valen stated, that was from one punch in one round, there were 14 other rounds to consider. While I think that fight was close, I had it after 14 7-7, can’t see the last round on Youtube, Valen made a great observation. Kellerman also made the same mistake about mentioning the face of Algeri. But for most of the fight, he outboxed Ruslan, and that is what won him that fight. Most of the damage on Algeri’s face was done in that first round. It is interesting to note that Ward was a lone dissenter on the HBO panel who felt that Algeri was winning the fight.

“White American Boxers are an endangered species in America. It is acceptable from time to time to allow a certain leeway to have the doubtful winner be the winner of the match.”

LOL…MMA is now WAY MORE popular among up-and-coming white athletes and white fans of combat sports. Blacks only make up 13% of the population, so it’s actually the Latino fans who are really the financial driving force in the U.S market. You have to understand that MMA gyms are now much more commonplace and accessible in most part of the U.S. They probably outnumber boxing gyms by a margin of 8-1 or even 10-1 in most areas. That’s why MMA is being totally dominated by American fighters.

If you want to see a sh*t load of white American fighters, just watch the UFC or Bellator.

TARK

Anon says.., “Take a look at their faces, Provodnikov’s face was untouched.”

That’s not the point… Algieri landed 83 more punches.

And Provodnikov did the majority of his damage in the 1st round.. He put Algieri in a 3-point hole.. but Algieri outlanded him by a massive number of punches.

I had Provodnikov winning on doing more damage with his shots — but I also felt Algieri was going to get the decision anyway.. It’s just the way the majority of boxing judges score fights.. The guy who scores the most punches generally gets the round — and that’s why Roach was telling Ruslan that he needed a KO.

When a man shows that much energy, determination, and sheer guts, that WOWS the judges out of their seats… Especially a big underdog with little boxing experience.

There has to be some long-term damage to Algieri’s eye…

He had inexperienced idiots in his corner who couldn’t get the swelling down… Like Andre Ward said, “They have to get that End Swell on Chris’s eye immediately, and work the swelling down for the full minute’s rest.” … They didn’t.

As good and gutsy of a win Algieri pulled off, I think he might be in trouble. Pacquiao might just pull a Mayweather and avenge his “friend” by fighting Algieri next.

Really Provo, was less scathed in this fight than his previous two fights. That’s a telling factor on how light of a punch Algieri really is, cause normally Provo’s face is a mess past the 6th round.

On aspect about boxing is to establish the distance in order to get your punches off most effectively while not receiving punched in return…. The fore-mentioned is the largest obstacle for plodding type fighters, even if they’re heavy handed… Unfortunately for Provodnikov, this one aspect will always be his achilles heal…. Really it’s a very easy concept to comprehend.

Provodnikov was robbed by a home town decision as I suspect Gamboa will be robbed in Crawford’s home town. When will fighters learn not to fight in the other fighter’s home town?

Take a look at their faces, Provodnikov’s face was untouched, but Algieri’s face looked like he had been run over by a truck. Provodnikov landed the much harder punches, much harder, that is professional boxing………………

Bears “boxing has never been about running away, running a clock out to a decision. and it should not award those that do.”

But it does, because it’s boxing and brawling both are scored. You could have scored this fight either way and it would have been acceptable.

That’s how you win fights when you are in the rough….by running the clock. A strategy that has been employed by many fighters over the years.

They tried to make a case for fans to buy a Prov vs. Pac
PPV by having Prov beat a boxer. It backfired. Now we don’t
have to see Prov vs. Pac. Prov is just like Rios and Alvarado. He needs to stick to fighting brawlers. Prov should thank Bradley for standing in front of him all night. If Bradley chooses to box and move he would have blown him away on points and Prov never would have gotten these big fights to begin with. He is just not a A level fighter.

Bears, that’s why you keep thinking certain fighters won, when they really lost: “u have ring generalship, agression, effectiveness, and who looked to control the fight.” Quantity of punches landed and lack of defense is also has to be weighed when scoring fights….

My post before the fight.

Algieri has some decent skills that could spring the upset only if he can handle and embrace the pressure of being in his first big fight and handle the relentless attack from a strong puncher like Provodnikov. Ruslan is a mentally tough fighter that breaks you down mentally and physically. He comes to fight. and as he says, he doesn’t like guys running, but he trains for them. Algieri IMO is going to hit Ruslan quite often, but I’m not sure he has a big enough punch to hurt the Siberian Rocky. Ruslan comes only one direction, has no defense and will take punches. Algieri is a bright guy outside the ring. He has to be even smarter inside against Ruslan. He has to be the real ROCKY in this fight because no one is giving him a chance. Ruslan has a lot of experience, and loves to fight especially when the tough gets going. Algieri has nevr fought anyone like this guy, but the smarter fighter sometimes beats the tougher fighter. Algieri has to get through the first five rounds in order to have a chance. If he does, look for the upset.

Prov 4-2 Alg – Provo lands 2 early lefts. Nice combo for Alg rocks Provo head back. Alg eye is looking bad. Alg work rate slowed again which benefits Provo attributes. Provo a little wild with his power punches, missing. Good round for Provo, lots of power shots.

I imagine Manny would put a big hurting on Provodnikov ?

Q

They didn’t see that? Algieri might get stopped this round. I’ll be a bit surprised if he makes it out

Posted June 15, 2014 12:10 am 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Prov 3-2 Alg – Provo landing hard body shots but Alg still fighting back. Alg moving well and working at a high rate. Provo waits for him to stop and lands hard rights to the body and lefts to the head. Give the work rate and numerous pitty pat to Alg that round. Provo stunned Alg on the bell.

I think the best fight to see Provo in is with Mathyesse. Meanwhile Algieri is hanging in there.

Posted June 15, 2014 12:08 am 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Prov 3-1 Alg – Alg comes out quickly. Provo continues to land his left. Algieri is a tough guy who is not scared. Provo dominates in close and on the ropes. Alg looks OK at distance. Provo cutting the ring off well.

Posted June 15, 2014 12:05 am 


The Prince

But Algieri up 3-1, but I still see Provo stopping him with a well timed shot.

Posted June 15, 2014 12:05 am 


Tomato Can

Provo is a beast, but he takes punishment in every fight. Granet, he still dishes out more than he takes. But be assured these fights will take a toll on Provo’s longevity. He’s fun to watch though, every punch he throws has the potential to end the fight.

Posted June 15, 2014 12:05 am 


The Prince

Algieri is making a case, but I don’t believe just yet, but I want to.

Posted June 15, 2014 12:01 am 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Prov 2-1 Alg – Provo attacks earlier and lands his left frequently as Alg tries to move away. Alg trying to box but Prov walking through it to land bombs now. Alg right eye is closing from numerous Provo left hooks. Alg lands a good right but not enough to win this round.

Posted June 15, 2014 12:01 am 


The Prince

Algieri would’ve been a great soccer player, or maybe a track runner. But he won’t last long because of his stringy body, which often comes with a weak chin.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:57 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Prov 1-1 Alg – Alg comes out with more movement and fights well from the outside doubling up the jab. High work rate from Alg to keep Prov away. Provo biding his time slowly closing the gap. Provo lands with power when he traps Alg on the ropes and corner. Nice uppercut and jabs from Alg. Doubt he can keep up this tempo. Give him the round overall though.

badger

his match with Alvarado was impressive.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:53 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Prov 1-0 Alg – 10-7 Prov straight into it coming forward working the body. Alg trying to work from distance. Some nice jabs by Alg but the power is with Prov. Prov floors Alg with a left hook, not hurt though. Alg caved under the pressure gone down again. Prov cutting off the ring well and it’s a long night for Alg at this rate.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:53 pm

Algieri has no chin. Top Rank picks another one.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:52 pm 


The Prince

Tomato Can – No they wouldn’t. Not Top Ranks style.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:51 pm 


badger

he beat herea and bradly.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:51 pm 


badger

yes they would tomato. he wants Garcia etc.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:50 pm 


Kid Flash

Provo will likely have Algieri moving backwards allover the ring

Posted June 14, 2014 11:50 pm 


The Prince

Algieri reminds me of Paulie with this mannerisms. Let’s see what happens.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:49 pm 


Tomato Can

Would they be putting Provodnikov in with Algieri if he was 19-0-19, instead of 19-0-8?

Posted June 14, 2014 11:49 pm 


gruvemeister

any links for this fight?

Posted June 14, 2014 11:48 pm 


Q

I’ve not kept up with either fighter. This will be my first time seeing Algieri fight. Let’s see how it develops.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:48 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Provodnikov vs Algieri for the WBO Jnr Welter Title.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:47 pm 


Tomato Can

Thanks but I’ll stay away from that one. But the Mongol’s did even worse things which I don’t condone.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:45 pm 


badger

yup tomato, just ask the 9 yr old german girls in 1945.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:44 pm 


Tomato Can

The deck is stacked against Algieri tonight. He’s facing a guy that treats boxing like a Mongol treated war.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:43 pm 


Tomato Can

If Algeiri, lasts tell the late rounds, Provo will be in trouble.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:39 pm 


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

woooooow…..that one guy is awkward that was quoting the rocky movie

Posted June 14, 2014 11:39 pm 


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

That was a lot of kissing going on among Andre and everyone else

Posted June 14, 2014 11:37 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Good performance by Andrade. Looked sharp and did what was needed at a good pace. Established dominance, tried some training combos, upped the tempo and closed out the fight.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:34 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Ref stopped fight – Big uppercut by Andrade rocked Rose. Rose trying to do more but cant land clean and taking punishment.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:32 pm 


Kid Flash

Rose is limited , he needs move to his left & let those hands go!

Posted June 14, 2014 11:31 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

And 6-0 Rose – Andrade upped the tempo and throwing a lot. Rose firing one punch at a time. On the few occasions Rose hits home, Andrade fires back which is a good sign for Andrade. Andrade punches still crisper and landing shown by a late flurry ending the round.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:30 pm 


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

is his name pronounced Andraid or Andre-dee?

Posted June 14, 2014 11:26 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

And 5-0 Rose – Andrade just getting off quicker, first to the punch. Rose trying to make it a close inside fight but Andrade wins that battle with work rate too. Rose landed a couple of good rights. Andrade defence getting looser due to his dominance.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:26 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

And 4-0 Rose – Andrade looks like he is doing some practice sparring. Every lead right hook opens up Rose defence for the straight right to land. Andrade mixing it up a little going to the body making Rose unsure of what is coming next. Andrade showed some good evasive skills making Rose miss early in the round.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:22 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

And 3-0 Rose – 10-8 again. Rose tried to push the action and walked onto a counter right. This one hurt him a bit more. Rose showing some good heart but Andrade is landing left or rights at will. Good performance so far.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:17 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

And 2-0 Rose – Andrade scoring well with his straight left behind the jab. Penetrating a loose Rose peek-a-boo defence. Rose trying to fight back but there is a class level of difference at the moment. Andrade speed advantage is too much.

Posted June 14, 2014 11:14 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

And 1-0 Rose – 10-8 to Boo Boo. Andrade established his jab. Showed a lot more speed. Then “bam” a 1-2 combo floored Rose. Rose wasn’t hurt but put him on notice. Rose landed one big punch but didn’t affect Andrade.

Algieri will be battered by mid-fight
