Provodnikov to face new foe

By Alexey Sukachev

Russian junior welterweight hope Ruslan Provodnikov (13-0, 8 KOs), who has just come back after a lengthy academic hiatus with an easy stoppage of Uzbek trialhorse Mahsud Jumaev in October, will most probably face Argentinean fringe contender Victor Hugo Castro (29-6, 12 KOs) in a bid for a vacant WBO Intercontinental 140lbs title, headlining a five-bout event, which is set for Nov. 28 in Samara, Russia. Provodnikov, 25, was earlier scheduled to collide with Columbian power hitter Breidis “Khanqueror” Prescott (21-1, 18 KOs) but that fight was scratched after Team Prescott had received a much more lucrative offer to clash against another undefeated Brit Kevin Mitchell in the WBO lightweight eliminator. Replacing Prescott was former world champion Freddie “Lil’ Hagler” Norwood (43-3-1, 23 KOs) but this fight was also called off later for yet undisclosed reasons. All four preliminary bouts remain intact, including a much anticipated ten-round showdown between 2009 International Kostya Tszyu Cup winner and 140lb national champion Fariz Kazimov (10-1-1, 3 KOs) and ex-WBO titleholder DeMarcus “Chop-Chop” Corley (36-11-1, 21 KOs).
