Mike '303' Alvarado, one of the toughest fighters you are going to fine at 140lbs, while everyone is talking about Marcos Maidana, Adrien Broner, Lucas Matthysse, and Danny Garcia, 'Mile High' Mike is right there and he's ready to go, after all those fighters I have just mentioned, only Alvarado, has been the toughest foe, in Brandon Rios. Armed with a laser jab and a sharp right hand, he can make an exciting fight and have the power to make the so called toughest light welterweight cringe.
His next contest, is against the hard punching Ruslan Provodikov, who gave Timothy Bradley one of the roughest nights of his life, it was so bad Bradley family left after round three because they couldn't take watching him taking that kind of punishment. Mike is taking on another fighter that may be tougher than any of those guys I have mentioned above him. One factor in Alvarado favor is that the fight is taking place at light welterweight, which may present a problem for Provodnikov, coming from his welterweight fight with Bradley.
Alvarado last four fights have been against Provodnikov conquer Mauricio Herrera, who was 18-1, twice against Rios who was undefeated and now against a man with 2 loses, compare that with Garcia, Maidana, Broner, and Matthysse. You tell me who's being forgotten.
