Provodnikov Willing To Go To Cali For Bradley Rematch

By Ryan Burton

Ruslan Provodnikov is very hopeful that he will be able to secure a rematch with former junior welterweight and welterweight champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley.

The two engaged in 2013's Fight of the Year. A fight in which Bradley survived two knockdowns to edge out Provodnikov.

Bradley holds a disputed victory over Manny Pacquiao but suffered his first career loss in their rematch this past April. In that loss Bradley took some big shots but never hit the canvas. He took a lot more punishment in his fight against Provodnikov. 

After hearing Bradley's recent comments that he would beat him a lot easier in a rematch, the Russian feels that Bradley should want to set the record straight and face him next. 

"Well I think he had two good fights with Pacquiao but I don't think he's ever been beaten up more than in the fight with me and he knows it.  I think he should stop the talk and we should get in the ring and if he thinks it will be easy to just outbox me then why is he avoiding the rematch so much and saying that he would never get in the ring with me unless he was paid a lot of money?"

The first fight took place at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. which is in the LA basin. Bradley is from nearby Palm Springs which is a few hours south of Los Angeles. Provodnikov said that he would have no problem facing Bradley in Southern California again.

"I am ready to fight in the fall.  I would like to come to Bradley's hometown again and beat him more convincingly this time. We both just lost our titles and I think the fans would love to see our rematch," Provodnikov told BoxingScene.com.

I think Bradley will beat him easily this time around... Don't want to see the rematch any time soon.

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;14699945]Bradley vs Provodnikov 2 is actually a pretty decent fight to make; crossroads fight between two guys coming off of losses, while also being between two guys who have started to establish names for themselves. Definitely not a PPV fight,…

[QUOTE=Jakutindi Wauya;14699198]If power is all you have in boxing then you wont last very long. Provodnikov can fight Bradley 100 times he will still come out second best in all those 100 times.[/QUOTE] Well, you're wrong cause Provodnikov came out…

I prefer to see that fight next, but whether its Cotto or Provo, Bradley will be demolished and get knockout this time. And Algieri defending his title against Matthysse, winner fight Provo in 2015.
