The Barbershop – March 19, 2013

By Allan Scotto

Happy Tuesday fans!
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute, scroll down and leave your comment below.
Now on to today’s question(s):
Wow! Already being touted as the “Fight of the Year” so far by some, WBO welterweight titlist Timothy Bradley and Ruslan Provodnikov put on one hell of a performance on Saturday night! Bradley was awarded a very, very close decision despite being rocked a number of times by Provodnikov. Debate continues as to whether Bradley was knocked down in the first round. His knee touched the canvas but referee Pat Russell ruled it a slip. In truth, the fight could have gone either way but had Bradley’s “touchdown” been ruled a knockdown, the fight could have been a draw. So, how did you see it and would you like to see Bradley and Provodnikov go at it again?

You pay the bills, fans, so what do YOU think?
Don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 208.
We’ll discuss the “Barbershop” question of the week and anything boxing-related that you’d like to share or talk about.
The show runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., EST and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.
We look forward to hearing from you!
