Timothy Bradley: “I am so happy and inspired to be fighting in the Los Angeles area in front of my home state fans. There is nothing more exhilarating than defending your title for the first time. March 16 will be the first step in doing what I did as the junior welterweight champion, cleaning house.”
Ruslan Provodnikov: “I want to thank my team and HBO for making this fight happen and giving me this long awaited opportunity. I promise that once everyone sees this fight no one will regret making it happen because once we are both in the ring I will fight until the end and the more Bradley will want to fight me the more exciting this fight will be for everyone!”
Todd duBoef, president of Top Rank: “We are excited to be able to showcase Tim. He is a tremendous talent. Tim cleaned out the junior welterweight division as champion, beating everyone. We are confident that he will perpetuate that accomplishment as welterweight champion. It’s going to be an exciting night.”
