Today Timothy Bradley hosted a media work out for his upcoming fight against Ruslan Provodnikov which will be televised live on HBO Saturday, March 16 from the Home Depot Center. This will be Bradley first fight since his highly controversial split decision win against Manny Pacquiao in June. I have tried checking betting sites all over the internet and not one had Bradley winning.
If that decision didn’t make you wonder maybe this will. Top Rank and HBO offer Bradley $2.3 million, the second-biggest payday of his career behind the $5 million he made to face Pacquiao, to fight Lamont Peterson again, but Bradley surprisingly turned it down.
Now Bradley (29-0, 12 KOs), 29, of Palm Springs, Calif., will fight Provodnikov, a junior welterweight who is moving up in weight, for less money.
Two-time Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez makes a special guest appearance on “ESPN Deportes – A Los Golpes” show with hosts: Bernardo Osuna, Julio Cesar Chavez and David Faitelson at the ESPN studios in downtown Los Angeles yesterday. Valdez is in preparation for his upcoming special attraction fight on the undercard of Timothy Bradley vs Ruslan Provodnikov.
