Default Could Provodnikov have gotten the KO if he picked his shots with Bradley on ropes?

There was one instance Bradley was on the ropes and Bradley was practically OUT and Ruslan just unleashed a flurry of a million punches with only a couple really landing. and the ones that landed didn't have as much power on them as they would if he threw fewer with full force with the intention of each landing on the button. Do you think Provodnikov could've knocked Bradley out if he picked his shots while Bradley was almost out on the ropes?

Absolutely. Bradley was ready to go... so close. In fact, he was on queer street pretty much the entire fight. Provodnikov made a major mistake by punching himself out in the second round.

One thing he should have done is blasted the body, because Bradley was stationary and moving his head like a madman, but his body was there for the taking because the body doesn't move.

With some good body head combos and more well placed shots, Bradley would have been ktfo.

As it is, Bradley is very lucky to have survived the full 12. At the end there he would not have lasted another minute. In a 15 rounder Bradley would have been ****ed.

Not taking anything away from Bradley, though. I think he did deserve the decision but it was a close, very entertaining match.

Maybe. He got really wild when bradley was against the ropes and missed like 4 haymakers in a row.

Thought he blew it in the 2nd and the 12th. More so in the 2nd. He had huge chances and sort of lost his composure. Bradley was so lost an open it was amazing he survived. Bradley did take some shots when already badly hurt so credit to him here. I still think Ruslan could've finished it in that 2nd round. He needed to fight the clinch better from Bradley in the 12th. He was buzzed and weakly grabbed on and Ruslan easily could've forced his way out of it.
