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?
