By the way, personally I prefer fights showing world class technique over 'exciting fights' like this one. Ofcourse this was very high level technique. I'm just saying I love the occasional boxing chessmatch.
Nonito Donaire vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux is coming up, and I expect it to be just that. Donaire is a top P4P fighter (either #3 or #4 depending on how who you ask) with a killer left hook. As for Rigondeaux, he's one of the greatest amateurs of all time — he's won an Olympic gold medal twice, for instance.Quote:

It's very possible that Bradley has now sustained a noticeable amount of permanent brain injury.
awesome, thanks for the tip.
only recently started watching boxing, sometimes I just watch it for the technique, but this was a fucking fight!
HBO Boxing is a **** ton better without Larry Merchant's crazy ass and George Foreman - the most experienced boxing know nothing in the history of the world. The commentators still ALWAYS insist on bickering with one another throughout the fight which drives me fucking nuts. Roy Jones can't speak English.
I'll give them one thing though. They're still better than Mauro Ranallo.
Oh, an that was clearly a knockdown in the first.
I watched it on BoxNation here in London. It's Frank Warren's cable channel.
Ruslan looked like George Chuvalo to my dodgy eyesight. He banged Bradley so thoroughly that I thought Tim was heading for the canvas in each of first 3 Rounds. I give him credit for Heart cos he just kept going but really, he was drawn into Ruslan's fight.
I thought Tim was likely to have little Memory of the contest, cos it was clear he was fighting on instinct.
A great punch-up and Ruslan [that surname is tough as well] will come again.
im rooting for bradley
