Home Depot Center, Carson, California - WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) had to survive on pure heart when he was taking a pounding in several action-packed rounds in his twelve round war with Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2, 15KOs). Bradley was hurt bad in several round and barely escaped a knockout loss in the second and twelfth rounds. He won a unanimous decision with scores of 114-113, 114-113 and 115-112.

I gave it everything I had. Every ounce I had, I gave. Hes much more powerful than [Manny] Pacquiao. He hits harder, and has shorter punches. Hes a great puncher, and I take my hat off to him," Bradley said.

Bradley was very impressed with Provodnikov's strength and his power punching ability. He expects the Eastern Euro boxer to win a world championshop in the future.

Hes going to be a world champion someday. Hes a very strong puncher because he steps into his punches and he hits really hard. It was a really difficult fight. I want to show him by those exchanges that I wasnt afraid of him. Thats why I kept trading with him. I didnt want to show any fear. I can brawl and box with anyone, Bradley said.

he saying that because the punches felt harder because he went toe2toe with this guy and not pac. when you are running away and taking the shots from manny they don't feel as hard. if he went toe2toe with manny he'd be out of there in the 2nd rd. Bradley showed the heart of a lion but the absence...

[QUOTE=Check_hooks]I dont think this is accurate Bradley was moving away from alot of Pac's punches whereas he was flat-footed or moving forward against Provodnikov Pacquiao is a guy who literally broke Margaritos face and Marquez nose And Shane Mosley said that Pac is the hardest punche...
