Default Paul Fuji vs Timothy Bradley

I would like to see these 2 being discussed in Classic, so I I think a matchup between them would be a good thing.

Vic, for starters, it would be a boxer-slugger type of affair, that is if Bradley had any good sense. He could try for a points win over the powerful, but rather crude Fuji. Bradley doesn't come close...nowhere near...being as elusive as the defensive master Locche, so there would always be the suspenseful possibility of Fuji catching Tim with a bomb that would knock his head clean off his shoulders. Interesting matchup that Bradley could maybe squeak by on if he was careful...real careful.

Bradley is pretty well rounded, but not brilliant, and any tactical adjustments he could bring to the table are not likely to do much to Fuji at his best as Timmy doesn't have the power to keep him smart so he'll keep marauding onwards.

Fuji by close decision, Bradley has a good chin so I think he can brave the heat.

I'm going with Bradley...via an unconvincing points verdict.

Fuji is slower than a Japanese whaling vessle.

To be fair, I think Bradley´s head is not on it anymore IMO....watching his interviews the guy is not good mentally, apparently....

Fuji would put Bradley in similar situations, but I don't think this is a feasible matchup size wise.

Bradley is bigger though, Fuji, Locche, even big man Cervantes, were ten stone fighters, or at least welterweights. Bradley comes in as a solid same day middleweight.

Sung-Kil Provodnikov is a gutsy, heavy handed fighter, and a genuine welter. He raised his stock from 'ESPN Friday Night Fights' guy I like watching to genuinely fun contender (EDIT: **** it, one of my new favourite awkward mentalists ) but not sure how much Bradley has left to be honest. He caught more heat than against Pacquiao, and I'm not certain he can summon up more performances like this. Rios' more calculated pressure might work either way, might be easier for Timmy to read, or might mean he finds the right shots to hurt Bradley so bad he can't will himself through it.

His chin, against the heavy hitters, is dentable but his resiliency is off the scale. He can't punch that hard though and although well-rounded, he's so Azumah Nelson in terms of skillset, and he's been fighting at the top level consistently for a good few years now.

Timothy Bradley is pretty much the reincarnation of Frankie War.ren, although in a slightly more boxer mode.
