Provodnikov is using the Russian version of A Side Meth.

That's why Bradley is not a top 10 pound for pound boxer.

Bradley showed some heart in this fight. He needs to move down to the 140 lbs division because legit Welterweight will KO him.

115-114, 114-113 (2). Tim wins via UD.

Get Bradley and Guerrero out of the ring magazine lbs for lbs ranking. Put Carl Froch, Brian Villoria, or Mickey Garcia.

I don't know any other welters who can hit harder than Ruslan. And this was Ruslans first fight at 147.

This fight did the complete opposite of what Tim Bradley wanted to gain.

First, he hand picked Ruslan, said he'd be a great fight ... yeah. But what did it prove, that he has no power. And that alot of people think he last this match also.

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 ...

Seriously? He wouldn't even be the hardest hitter at 140.

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?

You heard the boo's, after the fight. Most there (close to his hometown) thought Ruslan won.

Also, I've never seen Ruslan fight, most were calling him a C-level ESPN2 fighter.

I think goin toe-to-toe with a ESPN fighter (not my words, he sure didn't look like one too me) hurt him tonight. If he came in and destroyed him it would have been different. It was have erased the Pacman memories. He also got knocked down twice.
