Lucas Matthysse beats Ruslan Provodnikov in one of the most brutal fights of the year

For The Win

Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov delivered one of the best fights of the year Saturday night in New York, and after the Argentine won by majority decision, Matthysse said he wants a shot at the winner of the Mayweather-Pacquiao megafight. Provodnikov lost the fight by the slimmest of margins — one judge scored the bout a draw, while the other two gave Matthysse a 115-113 edge — but admitted after the fight that Matthysse had been better.
