Timothy Bradley To See Concussion Specialist Next Month
By Ryan Burton
WBO welterweight champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley has advised BoxingScene Radio/BoxingScene.com that he is going to see a concussion specialist next month.
Last week, Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) won a unanimous decision over Ruslan Provodnikov in a thrilling fight that undoubtedly will be a candidate for "Fight of The Year." He took a lot of punishment in the process and in his post-fight interview he revealed that he had suffered a concussion.
"In a couple of weeks I am going to see a concussion specialist out of New York. My health is #1. It's not about the money or the fame. Health is #1. I am going to do whatever he tells me to do. If he says take 3 or 4 weeks off then I will. If he says I can come back in two months then I want to do that. I made an appointment with him, he's a real busy guy and that's the soonest I can see him," Bradley explained.

LOL, he said the doc was booked up and can't get to him until next month. The initial doctor said that he had a "mild" concussion.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (40)
