Here is Potshot Boxing’s Prediction for the upcoming junior welterweight fight between Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov!
This fight between Matthysse and Provodnikov definitely has a 2015 fight of the year candidate feel to it given that both of these guys only know one way of fighting, and that is STRAIGHTFORWARD.
I expect these 2 fighters to come out swinging’ for the fences from start to finish in this fight. I expect for Matthysse to use accurate counter shots to offset Provodnikov’s aggression. I expect for Provodnikov to use his aggression to try and dig to Matthysse’s body as much as possible in this fight. This fight is going to be fought at such a frantic pace that I am not sure if this fight will go the distance.
Matthysse is aggressive and Provodnikov is aggressive so the Turning Stone Resort & Casino crowd is going to be treated to an all-out slugfest.
So who wins? Well, Provodnikov likes to go to the body more than Matthysse so I should pick Provodnikov to win this fight right? Wrong! I think Matthysse’s good counterpunching on Provodnikov will win the night. Remember, both of these fighters are aggressive so I could be dead wrong, but I feel that Matthysse will be the more controlled aggressive fighter of the 2 on April 18, 2015.
No matter who wins that fight, you can be sure the boxing fans in Verona, New York are going to get their money’s worth.
Prediction: Lucas “The Machine” Matthysse by TKO.
