Default Bradley "abandoned the gameplan" , really??

Has anybody seen Bradley fight before? He always gets into wars. It's part of his mentality. I can't remember a Bradley fight where he didn't slug it out at some point. He did it during Pacquiao, and just about every fight I can remember. I don't think you can change that about him.

'At some point'.

You don't walk in there and start swinging in the first round.

You test the waters, your opponents power. He obviously felt he could take Pacquiao's shots comfortably, so he slugged with him now and again.

I'm just saying he does that all the time. He's got the mentality of a fighter, even though he can box.

He usually does it in spurts and when he's on the inside. Also, he does it against fighters he can physically bully. He most certainly doesn't make a habit of fighting like this from the outset of fights.

That wasnt your typical Bradley style last night, take a look at the Holt fight the peterson fight he boxes and mixes it up last night he mixed it up a little too much

He often fights on the inside, but he stayed there too long and obliged Provodnikov at times he didn't have to. Other times he was cornered and had no choice.

That's exactly what he was doing. He was boxing Ruslan, then he'd go into little exchanges in spurts. Consequently he got hurt and he fought back instead of holding/running - something he's known to do.

I think it's more of a habit then getting out of a gameplan. Although that obviously wasn't a part of the gameplan, I'm just saying Bradley is known to do that.

he wanted to make a statement, that's what he said before the fight

what better statement than to try to KO Roach's Russian

give the guy credit. But damn that Russian is the real ****in deal.

People calling Bradley boring before this fight shouldve been banned with extreme prejudice. Mostly pactards of course



Early in Bradleys career I compared him to a featherfisted Shane Mosley. Infact many were surprised when he boxed Holt the way he did. i remember that fight and people didnt think he could box off the backfoot because up to that point he liked to come forward and stalk his opponents. Since then he's developed a more "slick" style but he still likes to mix it up

Wrong! The problem was, is that he came out the gate trading.

Once Bradley had been concussed from the 1st or 2nd round, every solid shot landed afterwards, sent him back on loopy street. If you've ever had a concussion, you'd know what I'm talking about.

You don't watch Bradley fights, which is evident from your statements.

You're right, but Paulie also has a lot of fight in him, and nobody would call him an exciting fighter. But that was before last night.

.. no he didn't. He came out boxing, got into a little scruff, and got caught with huge punch .

Same thing in the second round, Bradley boxed, then got caught / hurt and fought back. That's what he does.


I'm not saying Bradley wasn't trying to prove anything tonight, but he always fights like he's got a chip on his shoulder.
