On March 16, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley found himself in a position some may not have expected, as he was deadlocked in a fire fight with Ruslan Provodnikov.

Facing off with the durable Russian inside of the Home Depot Center (now the StubHub Center) in Carson, Calif. on HBO’s airwaves, Bradley may have taken much more punishment than he would have preferred, yet he was also able to showcase an abundance of heart and grit that helped him push towards a unanimous decision victory.

Bradley now finds himself lined up with an even bigger opportunity, as he is scheduled to defend his belt on Oct. 12 inside of the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas against Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez.

And while the fight is an excellent matchup, Bradley doesn’t seem so sure he will be following through with the match.

During a recent interview with The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene’s official audio show, the 29-year old champion expressed his frustrations and concerns about the drug testing dilemma surrounding the match.
