    Should be a violent fight. Matthysse is the better boxer, I'd expect him to win a close bout. Neither guy is going to move back much.

    I don't know about KOs. Maybe technical if either guy starts looking too bad, but I think you'd need a gun to put down Ruslan for good.

    I'd say if anyone could be stopped, it would be Matty and not Ruslan. I still think it's a longshot though.

    I could see Malthyse outworking Prov if he can weather the early storm and survive the periodical bombs

    Sorry, I'll try not to agree with you next time. Matty stops Ruslan in two. There, go.

    Matthysse should beat Provodnikov...he's got more tools and skills. That being said, if he stands and trades punches I see Provodnikov still standing.

    Pure Violence. Should be a whirlwind of a fight.
