PHILADELPHIA, PA (November 21, 2013)—One of the most interested spectators at this Saturday night’s welterweight clash between Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios will be WBO Jr. welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov.
Provodnikov will be ringside at the Cotai Arena in the Venetian and he will have more than a passing interest in the bout.
Provodnikov may see a future opponent as well he will be there to support Pacquiao and trainer Freddie Roach.
"I made sure I was in Macau to support my friend Manny Paquiao in his big return to the ring, and I will be rooting for him in this fight.", said Provodnikov.
