Ruslan Provodnikov media lunch interview (video)

Former world super lightweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov chats to reporters at a media lunch this week ahead of the Russian’s expected war with Lucas Matthysse on Saturday.

The pair of warriors square-off at the Turning Stone in New York with the winner almost certain to be handed a shot at the world title later this year.

Provodnikov, 31, made a successful comeback from being defeated by Chris Algieri last June when stopping faded Mexican legend Jose Luis Castillo in November, although Argentinian Matthysse represents a whole other level for ‘The Siberian Rocky’ this weekend.

See the video provided by Banner Promotions for Provodnikov discussing the bout.
