Tonight on HBO and BoxNation, Timothy Bradley makes the first defense of his WBO welterweight title against Ruslan Provodnikov, and Jessie Vargas faces Wale Omotoso in a welterweight co-feature.

Here are the particulars:

Location: Home Depot Center - Carson, California

TV channels: HBO (U.S.), BoxNation (U.K.)

Fight time: 10:15 pm EST (HBO), 1:00 am (BoxNation)

Main Event: Timothy Bradley (29-0, 12 KO) vs Ruslan Provodnikov (22-1, 15 KO), 12 rounds, for Bradley's WBO welterweight title.

Co-Feature: Jessie Vargas (21-0, 9 KO) vs Wale Omotoso (24-0, 19 KO), welterweights, 10 rounds.

Provodnikov is trained by Freddie Roach now, and Roach is trying to sort of end a skid that started last year, as the most famous trainer in the sport today saw one real loss and one bogus loss from Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan losing to Danny Garcia and leaving his camp, and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr losing to Sergio Martinez. About the only success Roach really had last year was Chavez-Lee and Raymundo Beltran.

Provodnikov is a big underdog, which Tom Craze wrote about in a fight breakdown, and four BLH staffers all picked Bradley to cruise to a wide decision win.

We'll have live coverage tonight beginning at 10:15 pm EST with the HBO broadcast. Join us!
