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

Tim Bradleys career is the epitome of "be careful what you wish for"! He sold his sold to the devil (Arum lol). He shitted on more than worthy opponents. He not only got his dream fight but won. Ultimately, it may end up being the biggest roadblock in his career.

Very possible,

It's all up to how Arum shuffles the cards to the strong money-making Mexican/Latino population. If fact, Oscar does the same thing with Golden Boy Promotions, probably the ONLY thing on which he and Bob do, and do well together.

Case in point, it does leave Tim sitting on his ass. Bradley won't put asses in the seats unless its a big name fighter in the other corner. Problem for Tim is that he is forced to wish for big paydays that may come too late, even if they come at all, and they may not come at all.

A Bradley-Rios fight from an unbiased view is contingent on Tim being able to keep Brandon away. If he can, look for a Rios-Abril II type of fight. Only this time, it's Bradley who will likely get shafted on the scorecards like Abril was against Rios, and like Manny was against Bradley. If Bradley can't keep Rios away, than Rios may actually get a fair verdict. But, Rios needs an Alverado type fighter to make him even better than he will ever be against an elusive mover. Despite the terrible scorecards, if you can't handle Richard Abril movement, how do you handle Tim Bradley movement? A better fighter than Abril with more experience.

Bob Arum is looking to build up Rios. Potential gifts may be coming his way. Can't say the same for Tim Bradley.
