In a division filled with talent it can be a tough task for a rising prospect to distinguish himself from the pack and catch the attention of the boxing public. For a fighter plying his trade in the 140 pound division, that task can be especially difficult as it is currently stacked with young and talented fighters looking to make their mark. Last Friday night at the Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights, Washington, rising Jr. welterweight prospect Ruslan Provodnikov scored one of his most impressive victories to date and did so in devastating fashion on ESPN2′s Friday Night Fights. In the Main event of the Banner promotions card, Provodnikov knocked out Othello, Washington’s David Torres in the sixth round with a vicious barrage, claiming the WBO intercontinental title and moving himself one step closer to world title contention.

Provodnikov, who hails from Berezovo, Russia, got off to a quick lead in the bout, pressing forward with measured aggression and landing solid power shots. A hard left hook to the temple dropped Torres early in the first round. After the mandatory eight count, Provodnikov pounced, unloading on his opponent  along the ropes. Torres, who has always been a tough fighter, made it out of the round and showed some resiliency by firing back, but he was clearly outmatched by the stronger and faster Russian fighter.  (continue reading…)

Thoughts on ESPN Fights

May 22, 2010 — South Korea’s J. Hoon Kim had a deceptive record as he lost three of his first five fights.  He learned his trade in the ring but he proved to be a quick learner.  He came into his fight against Panama fighter Ammeth Diaz with a twelve fight winning streak, eleven of those by knock outs.
Diaz’s MO was to box and move, using his jab while following up with an accurate straight right.  Diaz had one flaw, a weak chin, as he has lost seven fights by knockout and he was facing one of the lightweight divisions’ bigger punchers.  Kim attacks and come straight forward.  (continue reading…)
