This Saturday night on HBO World Championship Boxing, Timothy Bradley (29-0(1 NC); 12 KO) steps in to the ring for the first time since last summer. Bradley takes on Ruslan Provodnikov (22-1; 15 KO). HBO World Championship Boxing Bradley vs. Provodnikov airs this Saturday night, March 16 at 10:15 p.m. ET. Bloody Elbow will have live fight night coverage, including results and discussion.
For Bradley, the fight is an opportunity for redemption. His last fight was the extremely controversial decision win over Manny Pacquiao. Since that time, Bradley has courted a number of fights, but has struggled to actually get an opponent lined up. After the highest profile fight of his career, he's faded from the public eye, and now needs a win to get back on track.
To get ready for the fight, HBO presents "Portrait of a Fighter: Timothy Bradley", taking a look inside the training camp of Bradley. What you see is a hard-working fighter who has been pushing himself for boxing greatness since the age of 10. Unfortunately, there's little mention of the turmoil surrounding his career in the past year, but this remains a helpful look into what makes Timothy Bradley tick.
Check it out, and join us here at Bloody Elbow for Bradley vs. Provodnikov results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Saturday, March 16.
