Provodnikov stuns Alvarado with a 10th round TKO

Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2, 16 KO's) captured the WBO light welterweight champion by defeating Mike Alvarado (34-2, 23 KO's) with a 10th round TKO Saturday Night at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, CO. The fight was a back and forth action packed fight where scorecards could have had either guy winning after seven rounds. However, it was in the 8th round where a hard body shot would hurt Alvarado allowing Provodnikov to take advantage and drop Alvarado twice in the round. Alvarado never fully recovered from the knockdowns and a few rounds later Alvarado's corner would stop the fight.
