i'm not sure when they'll announce the bouts for that card, probably mid to late june i assume. i'm pumped for it already though, just knowing that boxing will be held at that arena. if the card is successful (tickets sell and local fighters win) i can't see why they wouldn't shoot for a showtime/hbo card later in the year. the ufc did a show at the united center and david diaz fought erik morales at the all state arena. hbo also broadcasted malignaggi/diaz from the uic pavilion (venue we went to), so there's lots of different possibilities.
do you remember that web series that i showed you before the molina card? it was about the promoters here in chicago. they dropped their second episode. i guess they did film during the fnf card we attended after all. here it is:
yeah, it was definitely a great fight that wasn't expected by anyone. tremendous respect for both guys. how bradley stayed in there for 12 rounds is amazing. provodnikov had this fight in the bag if he could've just stayed more active. he let bradley steal rounds solely on activity. it is what it is, great fight in the end. we'll see if hbo wants to do a rematch or both guys get some big fights after this. i could see bradley earning a marquez fight or pacquiao rematch after this.
