It was looking like we'd see a Brandon Rios vs. Tim Bradley tangle and that plan went off the rails. Now, it's looking like fight fans could get a clash featuring two names which I think would satisfy the urge to see contained violence, a steady and high dose.
I heard whispers so I reached out to manager Vadim Kornilov, who handles Ruslan Provodnikov, coming off a loss to Lucas Matthysse.
Is Ruslan vs Rios Plan A right now? “If Team Rios wants to do it, yes. If not, we have other options in Russia,” Kornilov told me. “We might have even more money for Rios versus Ruslan in Russia!”
Ohh, the “m” word, that sounds enticing
!”We want the fight so it's up to Rios and his team,” he stated.
Readers, who wins Provodnikov versus Rios and how, if it achieves liftoff?
