Also, he apparently put on 40 pounds after the Manny fight ... on purpose.
He thought the Manny win was bad for his career, this one was even worse.
Ruslan gained fans, why Bradley lost even more ...
Bradley showed more heart in this fight than ever. His biggest criticism was that he was soft. He took that Russian's best shots and kept fighting hard. How can this possibility hurt his popularity?
