Bears, NOW you are downing Bradley BEFORE you were trying to say that Floyd was ducking him and he would have been a GOOD opponent??? AGAIN I say makeup you fcking mind… Bradley is on a TOTAL different level that scrubs like Pianeta, Charr, Wach or Mormeck at HW (He was a crusier Champ years ago but NOTHING at HW)…. Bradley was a UNIFIED World Champion at 140 a division that was and still is one of the hottest in boxing, he is undefeated (thought he lost to Pac via decision) he has defeated ACTUAL World Class fighters ie Peterson, Alexander and Witter…. Meanwhile the 4 guys I just put out at HW has NOT defeated a single World Class PRIME HW in their entire careers…Your lack of knowledge is an embarassment to the rest of the commune!

NOT Greats?? Bears these guys are NOT even “GOODS” you mention that the Klits make Millions to fight these scrubs yet you give Mayweather grief for making MORE than both Klits put together fighting World Champions?? AGAIN your biases are simple to expose, I tried to explain to you before that the second you open your furry grill I see an angle to GAFF you like a fish…. Beat it Creep you are out of gas I can sense it!

Bears, your newfound love of Austin Trout is based on WHAT exactly? Because the only name opponent he has defeated was Cotto who Mayweather beat directly BEFORE him and snapped his win streak… I think Trout is a good fighter but he was irrelevant until the Cotto win, so now in order to be the man Floyd has to fight Trout, Canelo, GGG (Golovkin) and Martinez in the same night… C’mon man your arguments are dismal, bring your concubine Gonzo along to add som additional absurdity and flair to the situation… HaHaHa!

SREDMOND

AHHHHH So NOW you are admitting that Charr, Pianeta, and Wach were garbage? Floyd fights at WW or max 154 so he doe NOT have 160 pound Martinez or Golovkin to choose from as reasonable opponents weight classes exist for a reason, just because he has done business in 5 does NOT mean he has to do it in 6 classes..AGAIN your rebuttal is pathetic Tony Thompson got stopped MUCH faster against Wlad, he beat NOT a single World Class fighter since he got knocked out by him 5 or 6 years ago and he was GROSSLY out of shape when he capped Price… Floyd Mayweather is STILL the P4P number 1 fighter in the sport and to suggest in any way that Thompson is still at his best at 41 while Mayweather and other elites are declining is simply denial

You don’t stop your lieing. Your a turd. People know u now. Lol. I have never lauded mormek, charr, and and pianetta. The klitschkos don’t have pacman, serg martinez, gg golovkin, canelo, and trout to pick to fight over guerrero floyd does. Klitschkos fight THE BEST available, not floyd. Never has. Floyd showed signs of ageing in his legs against cotto there were even east side articles pointing it out. Everyone know vitaly has lost a lot of pep in his step this is called “stating the obvious” we can glean from the tape all this just like we can glean that tony thompson looked no differen against wlad then he did the first time and looked no different against price then he did when he stopped the 5 or 6 guys leading up to the rematch with wlad and winning ibf\ibo number one contender. I’m don’t with savage red. Your a dishonorable turd who lies about other posters incessantly. Gonzo is a breath of fresh air to your garbage

Bears, thinking Vitali, and Mayweather are on borrowed time but Tony Thompson is “going strong” on top of his game… Coming to the ring WAY overweight looking like a drunk but still able to wax Price… Silly fool, YOU BETTER avoid those contradictions I outlined of yours!

Hmmmmmm Bears if I am so “dishonorable” then why are you responding to my claim that YOU falsely claimed a KD for Briggs when NONE was awarded? Or that YOU say Provodnikov won the bout because it should have been stopped? Do you deny these assertions? you have still acted like a COWARD and not answered for why you dismiss World Champions like Guerrero, Holyfield and Bradley for their KO percentage but you laud opponents like Pianeta, Mormeck, Charr and others who have not accomplished ANYTHING?? Or why you say Vitali, Pacquiao and Floyd are fading but a fighter like Thompson who will be forgotten upon retirement is a rolling stone fresh from a KO loss because he upset a prospect? AGAIN your lack of honor is your shifting stances!!

Bears, I am 1000 percent legit because Lewis was NEVER charged with being KDed AND he knocked Briggs down 3X and destroyed him in 5 rounds… By responding to my post and trying to prove one of your proprietary theories that only Gonzo or one of the other nutcases on ESB would latch on to, you validate my assertions… I KNOW your arguments, I KNOW your fractured mind and I know how to make you dance like a well trained DOG!! Video of Lennox Lewis smashing Shannon Briggs HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Nice work Bears you just prove again that Lewis was vastly superior to Vitali who had to hit Briggs 1000 times to get a decision… I love your stupidity and your father leaving when you were young riddled you with insecurity!!

Bears, Bradleys KO percentage is barely worse than the Klits last few opponents Charr, Wach and Pianeta (next) are HW’s in the 50′s with their stoppage rate… How many HW’s did Jean Marc Mormeck stop? AHHHHH the answer is NONE!! Even at Cruiserweight he was only stopping 53% of his foes so SURELY you must admit the GROSS mismatch and terrible opponent he was for Klitschko??? Besides he was OLD and had not fought in YEARS when Wlad took that fight… Bradley is a former unified 140 pound Champ, he is STILL undefeated and he STILL did not get knocked out during his toughest fights with ATG Pacquiao and Provodnikov who came to fight…. You worship KO percentage ONLY when it favors your latest weak argument… AGAIN you are CRUSHED!!

Posted March 19, 2013 2:26 pm

You were the SAME guy that said David Haye is trying to cherrypick the BIGGER Vitali Klitschko who has NOT lost in 10 years because Klits is getting old but the RECENTLY knocked out and GROSSLY out of shape Thompson is in better condition that Vitali or Floyd? Dude you must think you are discussing this with those rubes you mix meth with in the trailer… Your all over the place and AGAIN I have exposed you Thanks Bears!!

Posted March 19, 2013 2:17 pm

Bears, YOU contradict yourself SOOOO much it defies all logic you say ” 41 year old Thompson shows NO signs of slowing down” yet you were the SAME guy that says P4P number 1 fighter Floyd Mayweather IS slowing down and so is Manny Pacquiao… So lets get this straight Thompson is in his prime and Mayweather is washed up? ONE guy has NEVER lost facing ALL World Class fighters, Champions, and HOFER’s but Thompson who has ONLY won against NON World Class fighters over the past 5 years is on Top?HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! More lunacy!!

Posted March 19, 2013 2:15 pm 


SREDMOND

Gonzo, Price is irrelevant he was a prospect who was beating up OLD fighters and then he got drilled by an OLD fighter… The guy is the SAME age as Bradley but he has NOT accomplished really anything other than getting some attention… Who is his BEST win? His loss was to a TERRIBLY out of shape Tony Thompson who had been knocked out in short order by Klitschko, this does NOT look good for Price’s prospects against better comp… Tim Bradley has defeated prime World Class opposition and he was a unified Champion at 140 pounds, Ruslan did MORE to enhance Bradleys reputation for toughness than he did to detract… Again this is NOT Wlad who is terrific as a frontrunner but FOLDS 75% of the time when the chips are down even against bums!!

Posted March 19, 2013 1:50 pm 


SREDMOND

Gonzo, Gonzo no need to read an entire post of yours the subject matter NEVER changes… But to bring you up to speed, the tough as nails Provodnikov DEFINITELY deserved to lose, in fact he lost on ALL 3 cards and rightly so… Despite the hard rounds he produced against Bradley Tim did the work that won the fight… While you and Bears were soiling yourselves with glee, Bradley was able to stay in the bout and fend off this driven yet limited headhunter…. Truth is punching himself out in the first 2 rounds allowed Bradleys superior conditioning and skill to take command of the fight long enough to get the win against the Russian slugger and Pacquiao sparring partner….

Yes me missus fancies fancies a giggle and dragon never fails to deliver. Always nice to have a laugh on east side. You definetly run circles around sredmond. David haye is back fighting contenders and working the mandatory route. Heavyweights are still heating up. Hey, maybe haye should rematch solis. I see his camp mentioned povetkin, banks, and helenious as possible opponents. I think they should add solis. With the ameteur win solis has over haye it would make for a great story. You have to favor haye but solis has sneaky punches opponents sometimes don’t see. Sred was actually cmparing bradley to one of the best heavies of all time wladimir klitschko when bradleys not even a great welter. Sredmonds garbage I think everyone knows that by now. The scat pron fried his brain. Lol

Boxtradamus, agreed, Bradley’s stock will go up and if he would have boxed Prov it would have been a seriously 1 sided fight with Bradley cruising to a victory. There would only be random comments from some about how boring Bradley is and how he was given a gift in the MP fight. His next fight would not have nearly the $$ value attached as it will now.
Also I will say Provodnikov value went up, many thanks to Bradley for exchanging, and earned another fight on a paid network.

HaHaHaHa, Bears, Provodnikov did so well that he LOST and if he was so in command and just trouncing Bradley why was his trainer talking about stopping the fight in the 10th round? This is just NOT a question you can intelligently answer… It was a war but Bradley prevailed I know, I know this guys is now your favorite fighter but he is a nobody lets join the land of the living…

Bradley loves his family even more than HIMSELF so YES it was worth it as his stock went UP in terms of watchability which equals more money to his Family. IF he had just Boxed Prov’s ears OFF like he COULD have then all of these threads would be EMPTY right now because it would have been a one sided BLOWOUT.

Maracho, any discussion of Ruslan winning the bout based on making numerical contact is just dead in the water he was WAY too inactive for much of the bout and Bradley outworked and outpunched him… period… Ruslan managed to really hurt Bradley but his failure to finish and the rounds he lost left him the loser.. So where are we to go with this exactly? you want to overturn the decision or do you really believe a very limited fighter like him is going to take over the 147 pound division?

Bears, yeah a draw would have been appropriate like they say, the challenger really has to take the fight to get the win. Its was also just too close for a country like Siberia to find favor with these politically correct judges

Maracho, as for Ruslan what do you want me to say?? he is a tough yet seemingly limited slugger the guy can hit it appears but there is no extra dimension that sets him apart… Bradley fought like a complete fool, that said I don’t see Ruslan being much of a force at 147 based on his skillset.

boxtra-Bradley wenthome with the official Pyrrhic win. (which i disagree with from the first round to the ropes holding bradley up) but he also went home without his health or career. you’ll see. powerhouse provodnikov harvested the soul of bradley in thatone. and i doubt bradley or his real fans will in the end feel it was worth it. bradley will be facing some low rung fighters and fall into obscurity now. the big fish will beat him. provodnikov would beat him in a rematch by stoppage. IMO

Posted March 18, 2013 2:52 pm

Plus I cant believe nobody gave Ruslan a 10-8 in any of the early rounds. Plus if one looks at the historical stats on Ruslan vs Bradley, he compares very well in the sweet sciences so dont be so quick to judge the young fella

114-13 aint a bad score but 115-112 is to wide and you and RJJ have been judging Ruslan to harshly too.. As for as the other fight, 97-92 and 96-93 is also way to wide.

EXCERPT OF ESPN’s Dan Rafael on the fight…Dan Rafael…..While Provodnikov did more overall damage with his heavier blows, Bradley was busier and more accurate, not to mention that Provodnikov gave away too many of the middle rounds. Bradley wound up landing 347 of 1,000 blows (35 percent), according to CompuBox statistics, while Provodnikov connected on 218 of 676 blows (32 percent).

Posted March 18, 2013 2:00 pm

Maracho, what wide margin are you discussing? Bradley won 114-113 on 2 cards and 115-112?? Two cards had him winning by one point which is pretty fair, I don’t think they can grant him a win in decimals ie 113.75 to 113.25…. It was a tough close fight and it was scored as such by any objective measure

Posted March 18, 2013 1:57 pm

Bradley did a reverse face plant arms swung out like a Bird to play possum before Out Boxing Provodnikov for the majority of the next 10 rounds and it worked as he went home with the WIN.

Posted March 18, 2013 1:51 pm

Sredmond, I’m not sue where you’re going on this because superficial injuries are the injuries that you can see. Plus, I have been happy giving Bradley the win just not by the wide margins that the judges gave to either fight that night

Posted March 18, 2013 1:41 pm 


SREDMOND

Maracho, the discussion was superficial damage ie that which you can see, if we are going to discuss Bradleys injuries then we would be remiss in not discussing the pounding that Provodnikov took as well… While Bradley was clearly hurt, he still weathered the storm and won the rounds needed to get victory… The fight I saw, had LONG stretches where the Russian was not doing ANYTHING, granted when he did catch Bradley it was jeopardy but the rounds ticked off and he LOST according to ALL t3 judges…Great fight

Posted March 18, 2013 1:35 pm 


maracho

Sredmond, going by injuries, especially superficial injuries is to simple to determine a winner or looser. Hematomas are more prone in people with greater facial tissue simply because they have more tissue and vascularity to stretch and fill. Likewise, thinner skulls are more prone to concuss. Interestingly, scientists now claim that a thicker skull and brow ridges are an adaption to frequent fighting but thinner skulls allow greater brain adaptions and heat radiation. I guess then it could be a trade off of ruggedness vs sweet science.

Because of powerhouse provodnikov bradley was not throwing punches after the knockdown. He did the zab judah and transitioned into a reverse face plant with his arms stretched out like a bird. Like the beginning of a swan dive. Lol. That’s when the fight WAS OVAH! That fight was done there. Over. Ko win for provodnikov. First round. Before bradley landed sickum.

“Bradleys not done” he was NOT even knocked out he got his bell rung nicely and like all STRONG fighters he will rebound… I don’t think 147 is his best weight but he should be able to handle his business… This his not David Price getting knocked out in the second round by an OLD man coming off a KO loss….Bradley is a dedicated fighter who does the work, if you cannot rebound from a tough night you don’t belong in boxing… But at least he WON which is the name of the game !!! WOW Great effort Tim!

Bradley conducted his interview with a SMILE and a laugh while discussing his dizziness… Bears who is a COMPUBOX fanatic has strategically dismissed his favorite tool which shows Bradley throwing a TON more punches and landing 100 more but who needs compubox when you have the TV…. Ruslan was tough but his lack of skill and sluggers mentality proved to be NOT good enough to win sufficient rounds… Terrific effort and we look forward to his next b0ut meanwhile Bradley is STILL WBO Champion !!!

Sorry Hidalgo, as is custom when you dispute me you are WRONG, Provodnikov had the POWER but LACKED the skill and workrate that ‘s why he lost… He showed he was capable to hurting Bradley on more than one occasion but his output dropped for LONG stretches after the second round and thus he was reduced to being a “headhunter ” only looking for the BIG shot and he lost… Hell of an effort but if he had a plan B he would have piled up enough points in addition to his highlight reel moments to walk away with his hands raised instead of a unanimous LOSS….You are ALL emotion and very little logic when you enter the fray thats why you leave yourself wide open to be debunked… Force to be reckoned with? Man please any solid guys at 147 who have skills will have an EASY night with this guy who benefited from Bradleys well known lack of punching power, he is EASY to hit and moves in straight lines, tough guy but he is nothing special. Even Freddy Roach was pushing him for the KO because he was losing the “boxing match”……

Posted March 18, 2013 12:39 pm 


Hidalgo

“but alas his lack of overall craft reduced him to a headhunter dependent on ONE shot to bail him out…” This is the biggest pile of BS you have ever spewed SRedmond. Provodnikov is obviously a pressure fighter. He obviously found a chink in Bradley’s armor and he sought to exploit it. Provodnikov landed an incredible amount of shots to Bradley’s head. There were at least two occasions where he was outpunching Bradley, on the inside, and scoring at will because all Bradley could do was flail like a little baby with meaningless, ineffective shots. Just as FMJ learned what Cotto’s weaknesses were during their fight, so Provodnikov exploited Bradley’s weaknesses. Call him a “ONE shot” headhunter if you like, but Provodnikov was VERY effective against Timothy Bradley. And, Bradley’s face looked like it did at the end of the fight not because of ONE shot but because of an incredible number of shots that landed on Bradley’s face and head. Bradley proved to be the better boxer, Prov proved to be the better banger. Brawling is a legit boxing technique. Granted, Prov took way more shots than he needed to because he didn’t let his hands go as he should but bottom line is Ruslan was wailing on a guy who squeaked out a Decision win over an elite champion not so long ago. Provodnikov wasn’t “reduced” to anything. In fact, he proved himself to be a force to be reckoned with. Bradley’s deformed face and head will attest to that.

Tomato Can, I was making a general statement referencing some of the more radical elements on ESB who act like Provodikov was a lock to put some hurt on Bradley.. Truth is he was seen as nothing more than an opponent, a guy to fight after a long layoff…..He fought hard to make the most of his opportunity and his heavy hands almost got him a stunning win but alas his lack of overall craft reduced him to a headhunter dependent on ONE shot to bail him out…. Bradley swamped him with activity and clearly landed more shots… Nice try Ruslan better luck next time…I don’t see much upside against better competition Bradley can’t hit worth a damn and he fought the dumbest fight of his life but it was still enough to lump this fighter up and get the win with thumping headache…

Sred, I hope you’re not refering to me regarding knowing a little something about Provodnikov. I’m not a memeber of his fan club, but I did know he would bring the heat in this past weekends fight.

Pedro, I respect your honesty as it pertains to most of us not having a real bead on who this fighter was (Ruslan)…Its comical how guys are on here pretending they were the charters members of his fan club AFTER he gets close to knocking out Tim Bradley…Provodnikov is a KO waiting to happen, he is a tough guy but he certainly benefited from Bradley not being the biggest hitter around… Someone with heavier hands will rip him out of the frame at 147, even a prospect like Keith Thurman lays him out he walks straight in taking shots…. Kudo’s on his effort though! NEXT!

And why the big discussion of Guerrero’s power? he was powerful enough to put Berto down 2x and strong enough to take his BEST shots for 12 rounds and keep coming… Floyd Mayweather is HARDLY known as a murderous puncher he has had 9 fights above 140 pounds and has only stopped 3 guys 33 1/3 percent so why the worries about how Guerrero can hit, history tells us he will likely have 12 rounds to figure out FMJ, but the problem her is not power its skill and NO ONE has more skill the Floyd who is a SMALL WW…. Tim Bradley came into the ring almost 10 pounds heavier than Floyd EVER does on fight night… (Mayweather typical 151 max) line up the excuses and we will keep crushing!! :)

Bears, I notice below you exhort Boxtra to “make and impartial statement about Fraud (referencing Mayweather)” Clearly you are NOT impartial because you cannot even refer to this boxer by his name so why would anyone consider you objective? I can point out MYRIAD contradictions in your thinking you give Guerrero a hard time for his KO percentage at weights where skills are at a premium yet you HYPE up BUMS with low KO percentages like Wach, Charr and Pianeta at HW where power is more important?? Guerrero beat one of the BEST fighters at 147, who did Wach, Charr and Pianeta beat? Who did Mormeck beat when he faced Wlad?? Ohhhhh NO ONE because he had been laid off for 2 years….Not too many 3 and 4 weight Champs in boxing Roberts is one!!

Time for a dose of reality, when I saw how DUMB Bradely was fighting early on I started to root for Ruslan to knock him out, but Bradley showed the type of balls NOT present in our current HW Champ who folded 3 times when he was in trouble during his career.. Bradley is a TOUGH, very well conditioned boxer who fought thru the hardest fight of his life and STILL WON… Despite Ruslans heavier hands, Bradley won too many rounds and he outworked and outpunched him by a WIDE margin, a blind man can see that… Its nice to be sympathetic but the reality is that during the actual bout Freddy Roach realized his man was taking too many punches and basically said “Bradley is outboxing us” kudos to Ruslan for almost getting Bradley outta there but he failed!!!

Guerrero is a PRIME young 4 weight Champion who comes to fight, he was just in what MANY thought was the fight of the year against Berto and he fought it out and bagged Berto up…. Bears what are your thoughts on Wlad Klitschko fighting his OLD sparring partners and 40 years olds? Wlad has not defeated a fighter anywhere close to as vetted in the sport as Guerrero in YEARS if ever…?? His NEXT opponent is an unheralded sparring partner who has a 51% KO percentage, SURELY you must consider him a BUM??? AGAIN we know your stances change like the wind I am just pointing them out, Wach, Charr and Pianeta were all HW’s who could not pop and CANNOT fight worth a damn….We KNOW Guerrero can fight!

If the Alvarez v Trout and the Mayweather v Guerrero were on the same night I would probably watch the former…To me watching two talented, young, evenly matched guys who fight in the same division and fighting for a belt makes more sense then watching a guy whos moved up 2 divisions does not hold a belt and who is fighting a guys who is arguably the best p4p fighter from WW down..But hey thats just my opinion, not that Guerrero vs FLoyd isnt a good fight, I just see it as a very good tune fight for the winner of Trout v Alvarez..

What AMATEURS want to see and who the Highest Rated Fighter IS is two different things. That’s what makes Mayweather the GOAT. He ignores the AMATEURS on the SIDELINES and faces the highest rated opponents available. Trout and Canelo don’t qualify. Let them go learn how to impress the EXPERTS more than Guerrero. Right now they have FAILED at that. Its EASY to impress the AMATEURS.

i mean i understand being a fraud fan. frauds a great for sure. by far not the GOAT. the GOAT is at heavyweight. always has been. its not that you like fraud that bothers me. its that you talk up garbage fights. canelo vs trout is ten times better than fraud vs guerrero and neither are p4p top ten. LOL

Mayweather is the GOAT. NO one has taken as many high ranking Fights in such a short Fight span. Before the Fight was forming Guerrero moved UP and beat Berto and Aydin the Euro. He MUST be Top 10 P4P if he came UP two weight classes and beat a Euro!!!

Sorry BEARS. Your AMATEUR opinion holds no weight HERE. IF Ring was impartial they wouldn’t have put Pacquiao over Mayweather for a couple years.

wow. that last post is a detailed account of why you cannot give any impartial statement concerning fraud mayweather. your a rabid deluded nuthugger. we know that golden boy (the promoters) own ring magazine. when this fight was forming (guerrero’s whole reason he made the jump in weight) ring upped guerrero’s ranking. ring is far impartial. not a reputable p4p ranking source. the relevant sources espn and sky dont have guerrero ranked in the p4p. you speak way to fondly of fraud mayweather who has failed to make the best fights happen in serial fashion.. ….he’s far from being the GOAT. He’s fighting a guy in guerrero who represents not even the fifth best fight mayweather could make. if you think guerrero is a good opponent because you worship the ground fraud walks on thats on you. but me most the world and broner think this fights “easy money”. a pre determination. not worth anyones money. if you dont make the best matches available to you, there is no way you can be called goat.

Trout punches like a POWDER puff girl. And his Defense isn’t on the level of a Mayweather that’s why Cotto landed more effective Punches on Trout than Mayweather……SO then SKILLS is more important than height and reach….You are WELCOME.

Floyd never will fight with somebody with power. What is the part all of you floyd followers dont understand. He did trade with Cotto cause he knew Cotto was in declive. He did not trade with the much smaller Marquez cause he knew Marquez was not in declive. He never never and never will fight GGG or Martinez or Canelo cause all of they have power and enough skill to connect him, without advantages in size or health conditions is equal to not fight. SIMPLE. Is not who worth to fight Floyd, is who can fight Floyd and not to be a serious threat.

I wouldn’t put much stock in Ruslan either. After this fight, I would’nt put much stock in Bradley. He needs to recooperate and fight a Mallanaggi type fight next just to see where he’s at. He took a lot of punishment last night. And Provodnikov, took some damage as well. In anycase I enjoyed the fight, as I’m sure most did.

Tomato Can I would not put to much stock on Provo right now. The Bradley fight showed Provo lacks defense, speed, head movement, and footwork. Soon as he faces someone with power he will get KOed. Bradley has skills but lacks power on top of that ring rust Bradley has not fought a while. Provo has power but lacks in all other major categories. What I would like to see is Provo vs Prescott. That would be a great fight and we could test how Provo responds to an opponent with = power plus good boxing skills.

being a little guy with a terrible stoppage % like robert guerrero and then all you have to do is beat berto for a fraud fight? please thats garbage so gtfo. if frauds gonna base his fights off that kind of formula he’s garbage. roberts small and making a big jump. robert beat berto who has been irrelevant since ortiz, the earthquake in haiti, and the juice. the fact that mayweather is even fighting guerrero just shows how garbage he is. its why the tickets didnt sell fast. it would make more sense to fight trout coming of the cotto win then fighting guerrero coming of the worthless berto win. but trouts height and reach would spell disaster for frauds ageing legs. i just dont buy fraud mayweather garbage,never have. i will when he starts making the best fights available come to fruition and fighting guerrero is in keeping with the fraud trend. shmucks like boxtra can buy that garbage and talk that garbage up. canelo vs trout is 10 times the fight fraud vs guerrero is and neither guy is a top ten p4p.

Anyone that can box and give movement will be a major problem for him. Bradley has the skills and could have made that an easy night. I would like to see a Provodnikov /Maidana fight.

You know it’s a great fight when it brings out so much emotion, these boards is a great indication. If you are judging the fight on who was the most hurt, then Provodnikov wins, if you are judging the fight and points, I saw Bradley winning a very close fight. Could it have been stopped, of course, but Bradly was throwing when he was hurt and it was just enough to prevent the stoppage. It was a drama that played out beautifully.

Provodnikov is going to give anyone problems if they chose to fight his fight. He’ll lose those those who choose to box him. Provodnikov, reminds me of Tony Baltazar, a guy who fought in the 80′s and 90′s. Very heavy handed, but is susceptable to being out boxed.

Hmmm, I figured this would be a good fight, and said as much at the beginning of this thread. I knew Provodnikov was going to bring it. That being said, I thought Bradely would fight a little smarter. What he chose to do, could have a lasting affect, cause he took the heavier punches, and even stated he was feeling the effects. Perhap’s Roach made Bradley fight Provodnikovs style when he said Bradley was going to run. That was a poor choice on Bradley’s part, but it made for a heck of a fight, that should leave few complaints.

EVERY fight is controversial or reffing is an issue when you watch so honestly that’s a grain of salt for me…Classic case of one guy being more hurtful but too inactive, that’s why Freddy Roach was discussing stopping the fight and saying “Bradley’s out boxing us to Kellerman” close fight but it’s over… NEXT!

Provodnikov was winning it on the inside and Bradley although trying to stamp his authority inside was coming off second best every time,he was winning from the outside comfortably and should have fought the whole fight that way but his macho wouldnt let him and he ended up in a much tougher fight than need be but a a victor none the less and a deserved one-just. kudos to Provodnikov for winning the inside battle.

“Truth is he lacks boxing skills “, Uh, no, SRedmond. Provodnikov has plenty of skills they just aren’t refined. And don’t forget, Ruslan’s trainer also threatened to stop the fight because he thought his man was taking too much punishment.

I understand that some fans are saying that 1st and 2nd should also be scored a 10-8 but I disagree because Bradley was dominating the 1st round for the first 2 minutes and he was also landing some heavy shots in the 2nd. There’s a case for a stoppage in the 2nd and 6th because Bradley took a serious beating, especially the 2nd.

This fight will be the fight of the year because of the sheer drama, especially the ending. This reminded me of a Rocky movie. Great fight for old time fight fans.

Bradley was saved by the bell in both 1st and 12th round. If there was an extra 30 seconds the fight was have been finished. I totally admire Bradley; the guy has so much heart and it’s rare to see a fighter like him in this generation. FLOYD “CHERRYPICKER” MAYWEATHER SHOULD TAKE NOTE OF BRADLEY’S PERFORMANCE.

“Gotta respect Bradley fighting thru that type of drama to eke out the “W”..” Bradley also showed a lot of stupidity by taking all that unnecessary punishment when he could have boxed more and brawled less.

Love-the-Sport

In my opinion, Tim Bradley has lost two fights in a row — but was given two decisions in a row by the judges. Bradley lost to Pacquiao — but he was given the decision. This fight was closer than the Pacquiao fight. Provodnikov won rounds 1, 2 and 12 huge. Bradley won by hunting and pecking and keeping distance most of the other rounds — BUT NOT ALL. I gave Provodnikov 3 other rounds so that it ends 6 rounds for Provodnikov vs. 6 rounds for Bradley but Bradley loses a point on the knockdown in the 12th. Final score 114 Provodnikov vs. 113 Bradley. Bradley really should have 112 and he should have lost another point for the knockdown in the first round. But somehow, the judges gave another decision to Bradley. He has really lost two in a row.

Almost EVERY fighter has a gut check win, this was Bradleys and if he was not one of the best conditioned guys in boxing he would have been done… Writing him off is very premature, even though I think he’s better suited to 140 pounds… Our current HW Champion did NOT show half of Bradley’s stones on 3 occasions when the going got rough… Gotta respect Bradley fighting thru that type of drama to eke out the “W”..

In my opinion a draw is more acceptable decision. Bradley’s win over Prov is far convingcing than his won over Pacquiao.

Yes because looking really good in 3 rds wins a 12 rd fight. Provodnikov fought a great fight. I never expected him to do this. He didn’t do enough in most rds tho. Especially later on in the fight before rd 12. IDC if he said brad didn’t hurt him, brad outBOXed him. we are BOXing fans right?

I think Ruslan damaged pacquiao in sparring making him primed for Marquez .He was probably concussed before the Marquez fight. He is a strong puncher. Roach said be punches harder than Manny.

I watched Boxing an UFC tonight, UFC don’t have nothing on Boxing, these boxing fights tonight were non stop toe to toe action, UFC was a borefest, grown men wrestlin on the floor in their underwear. Bradley did not lose tonight, it was close could have been a draw but Provodniko gave away to many of the middle rounds, dude is a beast I would luv to see a rematch.

Sheesh let’s get real Bradley fought foolishly and damn near got himself stopped, but Ruslan is NOT taking over the WW division he takes way too many punches and for the most part his hand speed dropped off in a MAJOR way after the 2nd round..I am sure we will see him fight some other guys and give a decent account, but acting like this guy is the second coming is seriously bandwagon… Guys like Bears pretending they “knew” or expected Ruslan to do so well are really full of it, this guy is one of the least known in Roaches stable and he came close to pulling an upset.. That does NOT make him the next Manny Pacquaio…Truth is he lacks boxing skills and hen Bradley was not exchanging Ruslan was befuddled and Roach was threatening to stop the fight… All credit on damn near getting Bradley outta there but he’s (Ruslan) is not a player at 147…

Funny that anyone could say Bradley does not have heart. He fought an extremely stupid fight, I am guessing in response to the outcome of his Pacman win? One hell of a fight, could have been stopped but to Bradley’s credit he kept swinging even though he had no idea where or who he was a couple times. At the end of the night he pulled out a very close decision and gave the fans a gift.

…..”both fighters made the same weight so how is tim bulky? Because he made weight doesnt make him not bulky. Maybe he’d have to go down a division lower if he changed his workout methods….but if he did, he’d probably be more comfortable and better with his technique. All I know is if he keeps getting hit like that, he’ll have a very short career. Have a good night.

The Low Blow! I see Tim working out with weights when he trains excessively, they MAY be TOO much for HIM to work out with…I dont know for sure, but its something Iv observed, and something Tim should CONSIDER for his future fights. I myself exercise with boxing, and i find it a GREAT workout!! when I had decided to lift weights, it slowed me down and got me tired really fast…I stopped, and started lifting light hand weights, which helped with power and made me keep my speed. I’m not a professional, but I do observe the muscular guys hitting the heavy bags in a lazy manner compared to the slim guys that stay up there all day! Hey dude, you dont have to agree with me, its MY observation, and I COULD be right! Tim “to me” fights like a guy with too much BULK!!

Maybe JMM is the exception….or just maybe he might be on “something”! But for the record JMM looks like he’s developed more “definition” he doesnt come across as bulky, I I think his weight would have increased if he bulked up….I dont know how much more weight he put on for the KO of Pac, but I dont think he put on a substantial amount of weight…I’ll check it out. Pacquiao was as powerful as 3 horses when he whipped on Clottey, Margarito, and Cotto….he wasnt bulky….but that may be another story!!!

@T L Blow!….The eloquent reasons you stated concerning Tims tech.. is what his indulgence in muscle building does to his “technique”. It’s my opinion, his technique would improve greatly without the bulk. Boxing gyms I’ve been to, including Gleasons – the coaches deem that a no no, they dont encourage lifting to bulk up! I’d love to know what Emmanual Stewarts take on this woudv been. The greats in boxing werent overly BULKY, even if their bodies did have good “definition” like a Hagler or a Hearns, they were NEVER bulky. Tim fights like a guy that doesnt have complete control over his body…”to me” his technique is “hampered”….because overall, beneath the “restrictions,” I see good very GOOD “technique”…we all have an opinion….I happen to think I’m right.

“By the way, Ref Russell is a piece of crap. He isn’t worth a damn. The old fart has no business reffing championship fights.” Couldn’t agree with you more, Hidalgo. First of all, he didn’t score the knockdown in the 1st round and that was a HUGE mistake. Secondly, there were a few other times when the fight should’ve been stopped because Bradley was totally out on his feet. The refs primary responsibility is the protect fighters from serious injury, and Russell did a LOUSY job of protecting Bradley’s health last night. Hopefully they gave him a cat scan and MRI at the hospital to check for permanent brain damage. However, I did score it 113-112 for Bradley, so he just barely squeaked this one out. There should be a rematch.

Bradleys endurance was sick! If he didnt have the energy to fire those straight shots and stay away, he woulda’ been TOAST!!! RESPECT to BOTH these dudes…..Bradley better think twice before bulking up with all that muscle for future fights. One of the conventional wisdom points about “boxing 101″, is that lifting heavy weights to bulk up – doesnt work in a fighters favor….it actually slows the fighter down. Nevertheless Tims conditioning helped him BIG TIME!!….the dude is no slouch in any way! Provodnikov has to learn how to cut off the ring and work his way inside, if he had that aspect of his game down, Tim woulda’ been SCORCHED something terrible!!

Bradley needs to shave off some of that muscle on his frame – to be quicker, because in the exchanges with Provodnikov, he was always a tad too slow AND inaccurate. The only time he was effective was on the outside shooting straight lefts & rights. Though his body builder frame never delivered much in power – this was the most ineffective he’s been fighting on the inside; but I do think he definitely won the fight. He also, most definitely, has a TRUE “warrior” spirit – right up there with the BEST of em’, BUT with that “muscle” skill of his, it’ll most likely lead to brain damage or possibly slowed speech “if” he keeps getting tagged like that. His mother & wife did the best thing by leaving early, they spared themselves an emotional roller-coaster ride, with the ride almost about to get stuck!

Maracho — Yes you must be right. That’s why like 3,000 people show up to a Tim Bradley fight — because they love to see him out-hustle his opponents. There is a big demand for watching Tim Bradley out-hustle his opponents.

Having said that, Tim Bradley did fight an action fight tonight. He showed great courage. But I would argue that this is not good news for Tim Bradley. He looked slow, fat, and less effective and he allowed a slow, clumsy Russian guy to beat him senseless. This doesn’t mean Tim Bradley is getting better. It means Tim Bradley is getting worse.

Bradley outboxed Prov, but Prov beat the living hell outta Tim. There were a few different times when Bradley was totally out on his feet and the fight would’ve been stopped by a lot of other refs. And what was up with not ruling that a knockdown? In a lot of other countries, the first two rounds would’ve been scored 10-8 for Prov. Bradley is damn lucky there wasn’t 30 seconds remaining in the 12th because he would’ve been KO’d. It was a brutal war, and one of the bests fights of year, but I really think there should be a rematch. I’m thinking that team Bradley probably doesn’t want any part of Ruslan again.

Bradley took a chance because he knew he had his SKILLS to fall back on UF he needed them. Provodnikov had nothing to fall back on. It was either slug his way or Victory or take the LOSS.

But hell there’s a hell of a lot of fighter who’ll have to stand and trade with him. As it stands, Provodnikov leaves this fight with more marketability than Bradley. Down, goes another fighter….

Breadly a chance to hold him and actualy getting hit too ,he should have just take his time and not rush in inside with punches but throwing them from the distance and with accuracy …he is a litle inexperienced but is one tough sob!

I’m neutral (not Euro or Nth American) in this argument and a lot of credit goes to Bradleys toughness, but in my opinion he lost on points anyway and was the only guy hurt numerous times.

Tonight we witnes a welterweight who I bet 90 % of boxing fans didn’t hear before the fight between
Breadly and prodvodnikov was announced and he managed to change the argument from
An undeserved boxer to who won the fight the p#p or a undeserved title contender!
I can guarantee you there are full of fighter with the same caliber as prodvodnikov but that are
“Unknowns” tonight these guys won !!!

I have no gripes with the verdict, as I wouldn,t have had any gripes had the ref stopped it early on.
I hope Bradley’s ok ,he took some heavy shots on rubber legs, and we all know that’s a bit dangerous.
So I for one hope he has no permanent damage.

An entertaining, exciting war. Bradley out boxed the Russian and was the busier fighter. But Provodnikov is one tough customer, who can give and take solid punches. Freddy should’ve told his fighter to go to Bradley’s body. Either way as Max said, we’re sure to see another Provodnikov battle on HBO very soon.

HBO Please get rid of Roy Jones Junior Commentary. I cannot understand anything he says, he is always bias toward one fighter, he does not know how to annunciate words. He should not be doing the majority of the discussion during a fight. Lampley shut him up!

Bears, you would have thought Bradley lost, without the knockdowns, GTFOH….

Posted March 17, 2013 12:40 am

Adrian – Chavez Jr. was also hurting Martinez during the fight, and in round 12 he scored a knockdown. Chavez Jr. didn’t land as much shots as Provo, but when he did, they hurt Martinez and staggered him. But like Bradley, Martinez still landed for more shots and stacked up the rounds to win the decision. I suggest you go back and watch the fight again.

Bradley has grit. He has the heart of a Champion. I though Provodnikov pulled out the fight with the knock down in round 12. I also gave him the knock down in the first round as well. Bradley did end up out working Roz, but Roz, evened it all up with good old fashioned concusive power, which even Bradley admitted to. That being said, I have no qualms with the decision, because the fight was that close. I will say this though, Provodnikov, put a much huger hurting on Bradley than Pacquiao did. No Doubt About That…

If the ref didn’t stop the fight in the first, and Bradley came back and won, that means the ref made the right decision. Actually it would have been unfortunate had the red stopped the fight. IMO.

Adrian, I disagree that’s Monday Morning quarterbacking it’s boxing and it’s ugly, I did not hear Bradley say he was dizzy in the corner.. I do think he should have skipped the interview and gone to the hospital but boxers are used to pain, if every fight got stopped because a guys bell was rung the sport would be extinct… I wish Bradley the best but he was a Champ fighting for his title and he opted to slug it out…

Posted March 17, 2013 12:34 am

The prince … Please stop the none sense , Chavez did nothing close to Martinez what prodvodnikov manage to do to breadly …
If you start compering fight than also Taylor was wining big against Chavez until he got knocked out by Chavez
In the last 12 seconds …

Posted March 17, 2013 12:34 am

Overall, not a smart fight by Bradley. However, he got to remind people what makes him special. A lot of heart and determination to win. He keeps himself in perfect physical condition to take shots and recover from it long enough to prevent the knockout, and his work rate is very high to still keep fighters honest. This fight might have shorten his career, however. Hopefully, he can land one more big payday before his career comes to an end.

I hope fans begin to appreciate Tim bradley. If he had known beating Pacquiao meant you had to fight his wildman sparring partner and go through what he did tonight, he would have thought twice about having beaten Pacquiao. He war the boxing match tonight but I am afrid he lost the war. He admitted being dizzy which is not a good thing for him in the future. I like Tim because he just acts and sounds like a honest guy. We fans should applaud him and quit crying the Pacquiao game. Manny’s long gone just let’s just forget it.

The margins and variables for winning a fight really are paper thin, we have all seen fights like that when the ref has stepped in and stopped it.
I,m glad he didn,t tonight but, I wouldn,t have complained had the ref intervened a couple of times, Bradley was out on his feet at least twice.
Great fight .

Bradley landed far more punches. Some judges go for the impact of shots, other judges go by volume of landed punches. The judges went for volume in this one, which is very fortunate for Bradley. Chavez Jr. also knocked down Martinez in the 12th, but I don’t think anyone here will say Chavez Jr. deserved the decision. The same should go for Provo. Sorry Bradley haters.

Another gift for Bradley. Should of been a 1st round KO. Bradley got knocked down, got up fell down ala Zab Judah. The ref made a big mistake and it cost Prodnikov a home town decision. Bradley was the only one hurt through the fight and that was 4-5 times.

Wow this guy was CLOSE to getting Bradley outta there!! Bradley appears to be a better fighter at 140, his two trips to the 147 have seen him badly hurt and shaken… He is damn lucky he stays in amazing condition because he was in MASSIVE jeopardy… Guys really thought Bradley could defeat Mayweather??
