Boxing rankings: Tim Bradley's thrilling win over Ruslan Provodnikov yields little change

The Yahoo! Sports Top 10 remained constant, with no changes in the rankings. However, given HBO's decision to no longer televise fights involving Golden Boy Promotions fighters, that makes a distinct split on where the fighters can be found on television in the U.S.

Floyd Mayweather, once again the poll's top-rated fighter, can be found exclusively now on Showtime's pay-per-view arm. Andre Ward, Sergio Martinez, Juan Manuel Marquez, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are primarily HBO fighters. Wladimir Klitschko, Carl Froch and Vitali Klitschko aren't regulars on any network in the U.S., though Epix HD has picked up their most recent fights.

With that, here are the latest Yahoo! Sports boxing top 10 rankings:
