Ruslan Provodnikov ready for the big names again

Former junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov is looking towards 2016 with one agenda. He wants to avenge all of his losses. Provodnikov is coming off a 4th round TKO victory in Monte Carlo last weekend. He's been looking to continue to fight the biggest names in the sport but has had a hard time getting them into the ring.

"This was a good win for me. I felt confident and my defense already felt better. I know that in the next camp things will come together for me and Joel's training. My goal for next year is to avenge my losses to Lucas Matthysse, Mauricio Herrera, Timothy Bradley and Chris Algieri!", said Provodnikov.

Bradley's former coach Joel Diaz has Timothy Bradley on the top of his list. Bradley fired Diaz as his coach earlier this year to join Teddy Atlas. Diaz claimed he had no idea that it was coming.

"Well if Bradley is a fireman, it is Ruslan that brings the inferno to the fight. If they rematch it would be a tough fight. After the first fight, everybody knows that Bradley was scarred from the bout. Bradley was damaged and in a rematch, that is what Bradley would be thinking about, and he would not be focused. Ruslan would take the initiative and knock him out." Diaz also mentioned Danny Garcia as someone they would like to fight.

Provodnikov is set to return in early of 2016
