Provodnikov: I Clearly Won, I Didn't Feel His Punches

Home Depot Center, Carson, California - WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) may have won the battle, but it was Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2, 15KOs) who won the war. Bradley, who was nearly stopped in the second and twelfth rounds, won a unanimous decision with scores of 114-113, 114-113 and 115-112.

Provodnikov was shaking his head at the scorecards and believed he did more than enough to win. He hurt Bradley in the first, second, fifth, sixth and twelfth rounds. Bradley stayed on his feet in the second, which was a miracle, but he finally went down in the twelfth.

"I was the clear winner. I hurt him. I knocked him down. I don't know what else to do. It's up to the judges but I think I did everything in there to prove myself. I did not feel his punches at all. I went after him the whole 12 rounds," Provodnikov said.

Ruslan's problem is he doesn't fully understand the sport in which he is competing. It doesn't matter whether you feel the shots or not, if they're landing they count against you in the points. He's got to be more aware…

the judges in the us are incompetent, they somehow side with more main stream names. bradley was just moving a lot but provodnikov clearly gave out more punishment. another gift decision

On this thread, some guys have said they are boxers and they know that even pity-pat punches canl cause the face to swell. You guys are idiots and must have had a losing record as fighters. The bottom line is…
