The fight where be held somewhere in Denver, CO, home to Mike Alvarado. Alvarado is coming off another Fight of the Year candidate where he defeated previously unbeaten Brandon Rios. Provodnikov is also coming off a Fight of the Year candidate, losing a very close unanimous decision to the undefeated Timothy Bradley. A fight between Alvarado and Provodnikov would no doubt excite the boxing fans, and possibly put itself in the running as another Fight of the Year caliber fight. More details will be released shortly.
