Ruslan Provodnikov (24-4-0) is back in action on November 7th against Jesus Alvarez Rodriguez (14-0-0). Their 10 round bout will be the main event at the “Night of Champions” tournament taking place at the Salle Des Etoiles in Monaco.
The originally scheduled main event contest between Braehmer and Oosthuizen has fallen through at the last-minute.
“I am glad that finally, I have a specific date and location for the fight,” said Provodnikov. “Hopefully we can make a rematch with Matthysse or a fight with Brandon Rios, which would both be great fights for the fans!”
Rodriguez, excited at the prospect of squaring off against Provodnikov said “I never thought I was going get a fight against Ruslan. He is one of my favourite boxers to watch so this is a great opportunity for me”.
Arthur Pelullo, President of Banner Promotions who represent Provodnikov said, “I am excited to see Ruslan back in the ring with his new trainer Joel Diaz. We expect him to thrill the fans in Monte Carlo, much the same way he has all around the world”.
