I just read that a Mayweather-Bradley fight is being negotiated behind closed doors right now. If true I think this would be a fantastic matchup! They should put the Ghost against Broner on the undercard & also have Canelo in a meaningful fight there as well. What a card!!!

Im not sure guys, I have to go back and check this out, because Bradley hired this new lady (cant remember what her exact title is), but she handles all of his legal stuff now. He could be trying to get out of his contract. Again, I feel like he's trying to do that, and its been going on since the Pacquiao rematch feel through, coupled by him declining the Peterson fight.

What better way to get out of your contract and land a fight of this magnitude? I wouldn't completely rule it out...besides, Bradley has been quiet awfully quiet lately. Arum's targeting a 5th fight for JMM/Pac, possibly in Mexico or some shit like that. I haven't heard crap about Bradley, except for some rumors about a possible Gamboa fight.

Speaking of Gamboa, didn't he get out of his TR contract rather easily? Im not sure how much time he had left on it, but he got out in a matter of months. He wasn't all that marketbale, so the question is...what does Gamboa and Bradley have in common? Yep, you got it...shitty marketability. That's the reason that Gamboa/Lopez didn't happen...because Lopez was marketable, and Gamboa had no fan base at all.

At least Lopez had Puerto Rico, but Gamboa has nothing. It's hard to book big name (or somewhat big name) fighters in Florida, and the last last card that we saw in FL, could've been a FNF card...not a HBO or Showtime card (help me out here).

I can see Bob letting Bradley go with ease...he does nothing for his pockets anyhow. If anything, he was a fluff piece to make Manny look good, but his "win" was also used to keep Manny honest (to keep him from asking for more money in his next fight).

So again, I can see Bradley getting the boot if he decides that he wants to leave. IF Arum is on to Bradley trying to land a Mayweather fight, then he'll keep him out of spite and keep on the shelf.
