Timothy Bradley: Ready for Ruslan Provodnikov

Sky Bet

Unbeaten WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley will look to silence his critics when he takes on Ruslan Provodnikov at the Home Depot Center on Saturday.

Bradley has not fought since he upset Manny Pacquiao on June 9 - with the American awarded the fight via a split decision.

The verdict was not well received, though, and Bradley wants to put in a convincing display against Provodnikov (22-1) to underline his talent.

"I didn't get any credit after the Pacquiao fight whatsoever," Bradley said.

"People sent me death threats after the fight because (they said) I won undeservingly. (They said) I should have given the belt back."

Provodnikov, who is trained by Freddie Roach, steps up from light-welterweight for the bout - with the Russina having knocked out his last two opponents.
