Bradley retains title in a thriller

The champ, Timothy Bradley took a knee in the final round to put a halt to a withering onslaught put forth by Ruslan Provodnikov, but was able to get up as the final seconds of the fight expired.

Last night on HBO we all saw a thriller of a fight with both men hurting one another numerous times. Bradley was rocked several times by the hard charging Russian, but showed a lot of heart and determination and was able to survive.

Bradley when he chose to box performed well. When he decided to mix it up with Provodnikov is when he got himself into trouble. Provodnikov damaged Bradley badly with his hook a couple of times in the fight. The champ was out on his feet in rounds one and two, but was able to hang on and get through.

Each fighter had their moments, and even in a losing effort Provodnikov gained many fans. This fight would make for a terrific rematch. The fans got their money's worth last night.

The official scores were 114/113 (twice) and 115/112
