Timothy Bradley Vows: I Will Come Back at 100%!

By Ryan Burton

Tim Bradley spoke to us about a variety of topics during his appearance on the latest edition of BoxingScene Radio. Bradley took a lot of punishment in his March 16th unanimous decision victory over Ruslan Provodnikov. Bradley said that was the type of fight he needed at this point in his career and vowed to comeback better than ever.

"It was great for the fans. It was great for my career. Will I come back the same as before, absolutely?  I'm getting clearer and clearer. My brain was swollen. I'm not slurring as much. I have no doubt I will come back 100% as good as I was before," Bradley stated.

Bradley had a tough time during the first two rounds before taking control of the fight in the third round. After being rocked in the 6th, he regained control of the fight until the final rounds. The 29-year-old was badly hurt late in the 12th round and explained his decision to take a knee. 

"I took that knee because I was trying to be a smart fighter. It was either take that knee or get taken out. I wanted those 8 seconds to recover and it worked out like I wanted," Bradley revealed.

Prior to the Provodnikov fight, Bradley received a lot of criticism for his controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao.  He said that he even received death threats shortly after that fight.  I asked him how he felt now after delivering a "Fight of the Year" performance that left the boxing world buzzing. 

"It feels amazing dude. It's an honor man to be hearing this.  I want people to respect what I did in that ring. It feels good to have that recognition as a warrior. I'm willing to die in the ring. I tell my wife all the time, for someone to beat me they have to either put me to sleep or knock me down a couple times and win on points. You don't have to necessarily like the way I fight but you respect me," Bradley told BoxingScene Radio.

Great W for Bradley but I think Manny Pac has Bradley's number.
