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


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

I heard this last week, but maybe Arum squeezes in a Bradley/Rios fight in the next couple of months with the scorecards fixed for Rios. He could push Manny's fight date to June...it's not like he hasn't changed Manny's date before.

That way, the loser of Bradley/Rios (which will be Bradley by Robbery), can go on to face JMM, while the winner faces Manny in June...which will be Rios. At the end of the year (Nov or Dec), the winner of Bradley/JMM (which will be Bradley), can face a "revived" Pacquiao, after he beats the shit out of Rios in June.

In the meantime, Bradley is stuck until Arum figures out how he's going to shuffle the cards. Pac/Rios sounds like it's set in stone for April, but that could be a smoke screen to build Rios up a bit. What in the hell is up with Bradley thinking that he was gonna get a $10M guarantee in a Pac rematch, when Manny's opponents usually cap off at $5M?

Being that the fight didn't sell much, there's no way that THAT much money was gonna be available for Tim and Manny to split in a rematch. Oh no...no, no, no. NOW, if Tim beats the man that WILL beat Manny in Dec (JMM), I'm sure something could be worked out...maybe not $10M for Tim, but something close.

Too bad he turned down that $2M+ "stay busy" rematch against Lamont, now he's lost in the sauce...until Bob extends the olive branch. Too bad Arum's got a wild hair up his when it comes to Timmy....we see though.
