Alright guys, Im reaching here...I gotta talk boxing. This boxing drought is getting the best of me. We're all about 0-5 against these cancelled/postponed fights. I was thinking about what Bradley should pursue after his upcoming fight against whoever tha fuck this guy is. I've seen him a fight a couple of times, but the name never stuck with me.

What if Arum decided to give Tim a consolation fight, for not making the Pac rematch happen? What if he can pull Miguel into this, and make it worth it? Obviously, they'd have to fight in NY, because those NY fans dont care if Miguel fights a damn kangaroo, they'll be there to see. What if this fight leads to a Manny rematch for both of these guys?

I'm sure Bradley hasn't gotten that delusional with his newly-acquired, controversial, fame, so I don't thin he'd argue about making the 154 lb limit. A rough and rugged (part-time slick boxer) Bradley, vs a fight 'til the end Cotto. If Miguel fought Trout, with no regards to how tickets sales would pan out, then why not Bradley? A guy who "beat" Manny?..a guy that Cotto lost to?

Thoughts?

Yeah I know, right? Let's not all answer at once. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Anyway, As you guys have mentioned, Bradley simply outworks Cotto in this one. The thing is, Cotto makes guys work for their money too, and on top of that, both guys are known to be bullies, so this is an interesting scarp to say the least.

If Miguel took that little bit of money to fight Trout (who's more unknown than Bradley), then I dont see why he wont take this fight. As I mentioned earlier, Bob may give this to Miguel as an "I'm a bit apologetic for the Pacquiao rematch nonsense, but here, you can have Bradley" gift.

Besides, what else does Bradley have to work towards while under the TR banner? Not a damn thing.

People will overlook Bradley's underrated hand speed and spurts of ring generalship, but I think Miguel makes it tough for him. Miguel's about two losses away from being an opponent (dispute this if you will), so this would be somewhat of a last stand for him.

PS: Somebody help me out on Cotto's purse for the Trout fight. I'd hate to put bad info out there.
