Bradley to defend on Dec. 15

Tim Bradley will defend his WBO welterweight title on Dec. 15 in New York at Madison Square Garden, RingTV has learned.

A source close to Bradley tells us HBO has approved three potential opponents, one of which is Ruslan Provodnikov.

Bradley was hoping to rematch Manny Pacquiao after winning a controversial split decision in June, but was passed over in favor of a fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez.
