Im still not completely sold on Bradley, but Im sure that a couple of convincing wins against decent opposition upon his return, may sway my view of him as a fighter. His name has been coming up lately in threads, so I decided to open a quick thread. It's been rumors that he will return before the end of the year (possibly on the Pacquiao/Marquez undercard), and he's recently called out Morales.

I was curious to know everybody else's opinion on where he stands in the 140 lb division and his possible move up to Welterweight. In my opinion, a fight against Maidana or Matthysse would be a good comeback fight, as well as a big statement in the meantime. What are yall's thoughts on him in the WW division?

I have my doubts about him, but like I said in a thread earlier, I was NEVER a big Khan fan (and he still bothers me from time to time), but he is now starting to grow on me, so ANYTHING'S possible in regards to Bradley growing on me. Have at it...

I just dont see Bradley making this crazy payday off of a Floyd or Manny fight, I just dont. Thats where he lost me, when he talked about his contract issues. Ortiz (who is known in the boxing world and by casual fans at this point) only made $2.5M in his fight with Floyd, and Marquez (who is known, with a big fan base) is only going to make $5M against Pacquiao in a rubber match, after two hellacious fights years ago. Im wondering if Bradley is doing the math and realizing that he isn't gonna make anything against these guys...especially with no fan base and being under contract.

Mayweather got Ortiz for very cheap but his guarantee was 2.5mill im sure he see's some live gate revenue and PPV money as well. He may make like 4-5mill but I could be wrong. I think Bradley knew that if he fights Pac he's gonna get more than he woulda for Khan and the loss wouldn't be as detrimental to his career, it might actually boost it from exposure. He could in theory make 2-4mill fighting Pac and a couple 1mill paydays down the road from the exposure. He may never get the opportunity tho. It's a crap shoot tho and it looks like he was trying to mitigate his losses

Yeah I dont really see him getting that chance either. It sucks, but thats how the business works...everybody's not meant for the big stage. I say he beats the hell outta some of these guys, and make a bigger name for himself. That Khan fight would've got him over the hump, but that contract issue was in the way.
