In what is already being considered a Fight of the Year candidate, Timothy Bradley and Ruslan Provodnikov gave fans at the Home Depot Center in Southern California a night they won’t soon forget. Bradley escaped with a Unanimous decision victory, but it was almost the end of Bradley’s reign as Champion.
Provodnikov managed to hurt Bradley in rounds 1 and 2 with Bradley looking visibly hurt and was dropped but was oddly ruled a slip by the ref. As the fight reached the 4th and 5th rounds Bradley managed to adjust and began Boxing while Provodnikov’s activity began to slow down. Once the fight reached the championship rounds Provodnikov began applying more pressure until the very end of the 12th round where Bradley took a knee after taking solid shots from the Russian. Two judges scored it 114-113 while the other had it 115-112 to give Bradley the Unanimous Decision. But after viewing replays of the previous knockdowns that weren’t called knockdowns, the scorecards indeed could’ve had it a Draw or Majority decision to Provodnikov. After the fight, Bradley was interviewed by HBO’s Max Kellerman who he told “I have a Concussion”. When Kellerman asked how he knew, Bradley admitted, “I’m still dizzy”. He did give Provodnikov lots of credit stating “He can take anyone out at 140 or 147”, which is something you don’t hear other fighters mention about a guy they just beat.
What’s next for both guys? Ummmm….A REMATCH?!?!?!? I’m already sold.

Bernard Hopkins doesn’t seem to have a good relationship with Father Time as he has been no where to be found when it comes to Philly legend. Hopkins broke his own record this past Saturday in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center as he beat undefeated Tavoris Cloud to capture the IBF Light Heavyweight title. Hopkins controlled much of the pace and didn’t allow Cloud to plant himself to land any bombs as Hopkins moved methodically in the ring not giving Cloud much of a chance. After the fight, Hopkins was asked about a potential fight with Undefeated Super Middleweight Champion and P4P #2 fighter in the world Andre Ward and immediately dismissed the fight by saying, “I wouldn’t fight him for $15 Million; He’s my protege”. Obviously, some would call that a duck, but I think even Bernard realizes there’s only so many hills you can climb. Hopkins is now looking at a fight with Nathan Cleverly for his WBO title.
On the undercard, rising star Keith Thurman stepped up in competition and defeated veteran and former champion Jan Zaveck to a 12 round unanimous decision. Thurman had never been 12 rounds as he’s only had 1 decision on his record with the rest ending in knock outs. Zaveck proved to be a tough opponent, but Thurman’s punches seemed to be the more effective and consistent (though Thurman did get hit frequent with Zaveck’s overhand right). During the press conference, Keith Thurman took it on his own to call out current WBA Champion Paulie Malignaggi. What transpired next was a war of words that could inevitably land these two in the ring sometime in the near future.
