    Two judges scored the fight 114-112 for Algieri, meaning they had it eight rounds to four for the challenger, while the third had it 117-109 for Provodnikov, a 9-3 score in rounds for the defending titleholder. while HBO's Steve Weisfeld had it 117-109 for Provodnikov.

    Chris Algieri vs Ruslan Provodnikov Recap

    in Sports

    Oh, boxing. Oh, controversy. Funky happenings seem to follow boxing around like some type of Remora, feeding off the crumbs that fall by the wayside, sometimes consuming it whole. By the way, a Remora is one of those fish that kicks it with sharks all the time. That said, we have a new WBO junior welterweight belt-holder, and discussion of the fight that produced it is in order. Some can't seem to grasp the injustice of Chris Algieri's split decision win over Ruslan Provodnikov, others feel it was a close fight and the decision went the correct way. Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules will weigh in with their absolute final, totally legit and 100% dead on opinions, which are certified awesome by minutes of sobriety. Also up for grabs: Demetrius Andrade's win over Brian Rose, and this coming weekend's card which includes Robert Guerrero vs Yoshihiro Kamegai, Gary Russell Jr vs Vasyl Lomachenko and Devon Alexander vs Jesus Soto Karass. Thanks for tuning in!

    Lucas Matthysse vs Ruslan Provodnikov, Fonfara-Chavez Recaps

    in Sports

    Inside of the ring, objectively, it doesn't get a whole lot better than last weekend. Between Matthysse-Provodnikov and Terence Crawford vs Thomas Dulorme on HBO and Andrzej Fonfara vs Julio Cesar Chavez on Showtime, there was mayhem, dirty tactics, drama, classy boxing, blood and, not to be overlooked, tremendous heart shown. Unfortunately so much of the great stuff was overshadowed by an ill-advised social media choice from Sergey Kovalev. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor cover it all, from top to bottom -- including this coming weekend's Wladimir Klitschko vs Bryant Jennings...whatever it is. Thanks for tuning in!

    Ruslan Provodnikov vs Mike Alvarado Recap w/ Kelsey McCarson

    in Sports

    When it rains, it pours. Except in this case, said downpour is a good thing, as it comes in the form of really sickening action to close out the rest of the year. The latest installment of "Hello, this is 2013 calling, boxing fan, and you're welcome" was Ruslan Provodnikov doing battle with Mike Alvarado this past weekend to the tune of a stoppage after the 10th round in favor of the Russian. That exquisite gorefest would probably be enough to carry a two-hour show, but James Foley of BadLeftHook.com and Patrick Connor of Queensberry-Rules.com will also preview Bernard Hopkins vs. Karo Murat and Peter Quillin vs. Gabe Rosado, among other musings. Joining the show this week is Kelsey McCarson, writer for TheSweetScience.com and BleacherReport.com, and member of the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board. Thanks for tuning in!

    Provodnikov-Matthysse, Crawford-Dulorme, Chavez Jr.-FonFara Review

    in Sports

    In the most highly anticipated fight thus far in 2015, Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov squared off in an incredibly gutsy fight live from Tunring Stone in Verona, New York. 


    The fight started off in Matthysse’s favor, although the first round could be considered a feel out by their standards, even though it had plenty of action compared to the average opening round. Matthysse kept Provodnikov in check and kept getting loser and looser as the round went on.HBO card was one of the most anticipated in quite some time, but the evening’s co-feature was deserving of some attention, too, although it was lost a bit on the main event. In the televised co-feature, Omaha’s favorite boxer, Terrance “Bud” Crawford, stepped up to junior welterweight for the first time and took on Thomas Dulorme.


    The perception was that Crawford was the high ranked fighter worth the world-class tag, while Dulorme was the highly skilled fighter that would never live up to his original aspirations. Crawford, who struggled to make weight in his last 135lb title defense, stayed patient early and allowed Dulorme to dictate based on output.Over on ShowTime tonight, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. headlined in a fight against Andrzej Fonfara live from the StubHub Center in Carson, California. It was Chavez’s first fight back from a year long layoff.


    Fonfara looked really god from the opening bell, while Chavez Jr. spent more time complaining than fighting. Fonfara stayed planted and threw meaningful shots, putting together impressive combos. Chavez wasn’t very methodical with his offense, but instead he was hoping that he could overwhelm Fonfara at some point.
