Ruslan Provodnikov of Russia made a special guest appearance at the Los Angeles Kings – Calgary Flames game at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles on Monday night. Provodnikov took in the action and was presented with a special jersey, as he did a meet and greet with their mascot and hung out at the arena.
Provodnikov will be doing his best to make Saturday night’s fight into a hockey brawl. If he can engage Bradley in a back and forth type of battle, with wild swinging and the equivalent of jersey pulling and holding, then he’ll improve his chances. Otherwise, it’ll be a tough night for him. So he must have been looking for some inspiration at the game.
Provodnikov is preparing for his upcoming World Welterweight Championship against undefeated WBO World Welterweight champion Timothy “The Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. Promoted by Top Rank®, in association with Banner Promotions, Tecate, Bradley-Provodnikov will take place, Saturday, March 16 at The Home Depot Center in Carson,Calif. and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.
