So I'm scrolling through boxingscene and I find this..

http://www.boxingscene.com/tim-bradley-giv...-he-beat--59445

And I can't help finding myself giving Tim Bradley props. Not only does Bradley rios sound like a tough fight but its a hard fight for Bradley. Hes just a competitor and wants to fight the best, which he should since he has an official win over pac. He might not be the most exciting guy to watch but he has tons of heart determination and he keeps finding ways to win. Besides his fight with casamayor I don't remember the last time Bradley had an easy fight, and he keeps going against arum! Can't help but love that! (Even thought it will probably work against him)

Now I could see this fight being hard for Bradley because of his lack of power, rios would lose respect and just relentlessly pressure him. And if you want to prove rios deserves to be in the ring with pac why not have him go in there and prove himself against the guy who officially beat pac.

What do you guys think

Bradley beats Rios. Much, much more convincingly than he beat Pacquaio.

I didn't read the article as I have absolutely no faith in boxing scene, but if it does happen, then I'll be watching.

Well the article is basically Bradley saying he doesn't want alvarado, he wants rios. But idk about Bradley beating rios easily

Exactly what I was thinking. As we know he doesn't have much pop and rios can cut the ring off better than pac. But usually Bradley has enough speed to basically catch his opponents and surprise them with those wide hooks to keep them off but idk if he could keep brandon off. What I'm wondering is if Bradley can withstand rios for a whole fight if he's forced to Exchange. I think this would be a good fight

Fair enough. Hopefully they make it. They're both with TR so there shouldn't be any obstacles (apart from some Bobfather contrived nonsense...).

We share the same sentiments. Rios is faster and stronger on the inside, than most think.

I unno, I haven't see any slick in-game from Bradley, which I think is perfect for shutting down Rios if you fight him in the pocket. Bradley is okay at range, but typically likes to get in, wild, and sloppy. So WHO KNOWS?

I agree...to an extent. Your outside game has to be smooth and accurate, but your inside game can be dirty, sloppy, and/or accurate...as long as you're first and actually land on your opponent...that's all that matters.
