Timothy Bradley Jr showed a different approach during his last victory over Ruslan Provodnikov. He was the aggressor for much of the fight and let his hands fly freely for the first time in a long time, if ever.
That approach landed him in trouble several times during the fight and almost resulted in him being knocked out in the 12th. He survived the round, won the fight, and took the ever elusive step toward becoming a household name.
Bradley faces one of his largest test as a professional boxer and as a champion on Saturday against Juan Manuel Marquez.
Both new and old fans of Bradley hoped that this change was more of an evolution than a blip on the radar. His most recent interview with FightHub TV hints that Bradley may be returning to his previously effective, yet boring, philosophy. Bradley discusses the respect he has for Marquez as a counter puncher and predicts a 12 round bout.
It seems as though Bradley is very aware of his lack of power and is choosing to make this an ugly fight similar to the fight against Manny P. We all know that anything is possible when a fight is left up to the three “expert” judges at ringside.
