CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Timothy Bradley is a two-division world champion and an exemplary citizen. Yet he never sparked much passion in the boxing world.
Not until he finished his 30th fight with wobbly legs and glassy eyes Saturday night, barely staying upright to the final bell against Ruslan Provodnikov.
A classy boxer became a raw fighter for one thrilling bout. Once Bradley heals, he could reap the benefits for years.
