[Boxing] Timothy Bradley vs Ruslan Provodnikov - Mar 16, 2013
Last night, while everyone watched the UFC's over-hyped, non-competitive, man-hugging competition, another fight that was altogether better. It had no hype, no buzz, no talk. In years to come, this will be the fight we all talk about.
What fight you ask? Timothy Bradley vs. Ruslan Provodnikov. And before you say anything else, take a moment out of your day and watch this fight.
Both these men are warriors. They put up with hellacious punishment because their heart had no quit.
Bradley, in particular, showed me that he doesn't deserve any of the hate directed to him after Pacquiao-Bradley. He's got more drive, determination, and just no quit.
As for Provodnikov, he proved that he can be a main event fighter. Everyone loves a come forward slugger with one punch power. Everyone loves an underdog who shows up to win.
This was one for the ages. If you cannot love this fight, you have no soul!
