Brandon Rios wants to fight... bad. There had been a lot of talk of a showdown between Brandon Rios and Tim Bradley for the Fall, the talks have died and it looks like the fight will not happen. Rios, was also looking to fight Kell Brook but those talks have also failed. Out of what seems to be frustration Rios, took to twitter and called out Ruslan Provodnikov, "F*ck it let make this fight happen @RuslanProvod cuz no one want to fight. So I'll give the fan a fun fight".
Brandon Rios last fought in January against Mike Alvarado where he won by TKO in the third round. Alvarado could not answer the bell. This was a rematch to their 2013 bout where Rios, lost by UD over 12 round. Ruslan Provodnikov recently went to war with Lucas Matthysse this past April losing by a close MD, scores: judges: Don Ackerman 114-114, Glenn Feldman 113-115, John McKaie 113-115.
Rios vs Provodnikov is a mouth watering fight that all boxing fans would love to see. Both fighters are known to brawl toe to toe phone booth style. Lets hope the promoters capitalize on this fight and give the fans warfare entertainment.
