Tim Bradley is Hoping To Fight Three Times in 2013

By Ryan Burton

WBO welterweight champion Tim "Desert Storm" Bradley (29-0, 12KOs) is currently in the middle of his training camp for his HBO televised March 16th title defense against Ruslan Provodnikov (22-1, 15KOs) at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles.

On yesterday's edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show, Bradley broke down the fight and explained the Siberian fighters strengths. 

"Provodnikov is a tough cookie. He's a good fighter. He likes to come forward and bang. He has a good right hand, a good right uppercut. He does a little bit of everything and he's coming to win. It should be a good fight," Bradley explained.

The Southern California native expects Provodnikov to press the action and expects a difficult fight. He thinks that some of the fans may be underestimating the challenge that he presents. 

"He's going to come in really good shape and I think it is going to be a really rough night. I think people are sleeping on him. He's going to make me fight," Bradley stated.

It's no secret that Bradley hoped to land a bigger fight after his controversial split decision victory over Manny Pacquiao this past June. The 29-year-old will have been out of the ring 9 months when he faces Provodnikov. He hopes to have a much busier 2013 which in turn should lead to bigger fights. 

"He's going to be a challenge. Is he my first choice? Probably not but I will fight anybody. I've been out of the ring for 8 months so its a good fight. After March 16th hopefully I can get a bigger fight. That's my main focus. Right now I want to get back to fighting 2 or 3 times a year, hopefully three times a year," Bradley told us on The Boxing Lab.

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;13041884]I'd still route for him to beat Pacquaio (Legitimately) because I'm not a fan of Pacquaio but on the other hand I think Pacquaio deserves to get his W back and if they fight again there is no way the…

Hopefully the Marquez or Pacquaio fights get made because he loses both of those fights. Rios is 50-50 IMO.
