Junior welterweight Ruslan Provodnikov expects to train alongside Miguel Cotto in preparation for his Oct. 19 bout with WBO beltholder Mike Alvarado.
Demetrius Andrade on fellow unbeaten 154-pound contender Vanes Martirosyan, who he fights on Sept. 7: “I was a 2008 Olympian and he made it in 2004. I will show him that if I was around in 2003 and 2004, he would not have made the team.”
Mike Alvarado has made public his reasons for not yet accepting a proposed Oct. 19 clash with Ruslan Provodnikov.
Manager Cameron Dunkin’s plan for Mikey Garcia is to match him against Orlando Salido in the fall, while the hope for Brandon Rios is a fight with Juan Manuel Marquez.
