i think bradley going to win by decsion he to experince and to smart and quick for provodnikov but i think ruslan going to make it tough tho cause he do come to fight and he can punch he strong with a good chin i think his style is talior made for bradley tho he slow and gets hit alot i see bradley winning thatPosted February 7, 2013 9:06 pm
Prov comes to fight and is a puncher so it’s a good matchup….props to Tim for not taking what you call an easy fightPosted February 7, 2013 11:41 am
Bradley has a lot riding on his shoulder on this fight. Win impressively and he might get in the driver seat to fight, Pac, Marquez, Alexander, Khan or any other top fighter at 147 or 140. However, he can’t afford to take another long laid-off.
Also, he can’t afford to lose. If he loses, his critiques will be all over him and he may never recover. He’ll become another Ortiz.
Though I’m not a Bradley fan due to his style of leading with his head, I wish him well on this fight. I wish he win this fight in a clean fashion without using his head…literately.Posted February 7, 2013 10:23 am
Should be an entertaining match-up — Provodnikov can bang and Bradley is one crafty and determined fighter. Love to see this fight!Posted February 6, 2013 9:14 pm
This is a good style match-up and should make for an entertaining fight. Though it’s a decrease in pay for Tim over what he would have made had he fought Lamont Peterson, it figures to be a better fight – unless Tim just totally outclasses Provodnikov.Posted February 6, 2013 7:53 pm
I’m very curious as to whether Bradley can draw a crowd. I know Provo can’t. We’ll see.Posted February 6, 2013 6:26 pm
I have seen Provo on espn.
I’ve never seen this Provodnikov before, but I’m just glad to see Bradley back in the ring!Posted February 6, 2013 5:33 pm
