he would get like 3mill
who on GB gets that? Even guys like danny garcia got his career high payday his last fight which was 1.5 mill



If you think Bradley would get 3 million for fighting the guys I listed I don't know what to tell you, he won't. You think he made 3 million for Ruslan? If TR guys were all getting these huge purses than 7 of the 8 USA Olympic boxers wouldn't have signed with GB and Bob really wanted Spence Jr.

Get over it, Bradley wont sell, so I'm wondering where all of the "Bradley vs Mayweather would be a big fight" stuff is coming from.

Its like clockwork around here, as soon as guy wins a fight on Saturday night, suddenly, he's the next guy for the golden Mayweather ticket. Whether Bradley wins a fight cleanly, or gets tossed around the ring like a rag doll, he still can't sell a fight.



If they can boost gurreo they can boost bradley his resume is better and he has fought better comp than anyone else that may can fight the spin would be Bradley beat Pacquiao even if most thought he lost as far as fighting pac i would pass he makes way more bread fighting may than he could ever make fighting pac

Guerrero is of Mexican origin

Guerrero fought for 3 million

Bradley isn't well liked

Bradley sold 2,000 tickets vs Ruslan

It really isn't a fight that will sale, Broner vs Floyd: Once Brothers, would likely sale more.

tim isn't leaving top rank, he can make 5 mill per fight with TR, why leave and take a L to mayweather? what other fighter for goldenboy is making 4 or 5 mill per fight? TR is smart they pay you more, Canelo got 5 mill for fighting mayweather Tim bradley got 4.1 last night and he is not even a draw.

Canelo made over 12 mil bro. You got your figures twisted

Bradley is a good guy, hard worker, and a helluva boxer. But other than marquez or pac I don't see him getting a ppv even with Rios being Mexican. The numbers for this fight last night probably will look like Dawson Hopkins

Bradley would be better suited coming to Golden Boy but not to fight Floyd right away. It could end like the Pacquiao fight where he should have been careful what he wished for. Golden Boy could change the public perception of Bradley pretty quickly in my opinion. #1 It's a totally different network without Lampley's hating ass reminding everyone of "the worst robbery ever" every time he fights. I can't see Al Bernstein doing that to Bradley. #2 He's got plenty of fighters from 140-147 to choose from that come with solid fan bases. Danny Garcia is building a strong Puerto Rican and Philly fan base. Matthysse and Maidana will always have a following because of their fighting styles. Broner is becoming a star like it or not. Guerrero has a semi-decent Mexican following and his father is a potential story line. Ortiz and Khan, no matter how bad they look in fights, always seem to have a solid fan base backing. He could give Devon a rematch. Who knows where Keith Thurman's career will take off too. You even have guys like Andre Berto who continually draw crowds in hopes that one day he'll live up to his potential lol. That's not even including fighting like Soto-Karass, Malinaggi, Judah etc. Not to mention, Golden Boys cards lately have blown Top Prank's completely out of the water. If he stays at Top Rank, it'll be cool for the short term but you know, win lose or draw, there will be the same permutation of matches that will involve Provodnikov, Pacquiao, Rios, Marquez, Alvarado and Bradley.

Oh yea...remember when Jesse Vargas was the future of boxing? lmao Turns out you can't win em all after all Floyd.

It gets on my last nerve when Lampley goes on about Bradley getting a robbery, I bet Lampley won't mention Abril one time during Manny fight and I had that 11-1 Abril but Lampley is gay for Rios.

The maximum payment Hbo or showtime will make to a non-ppv event is $2.5 million dollars and that's to the star, the A-Side fighter. So yes Bradley could easily get 3 million to fight Rios, Provodnikov, etc. He made over 2 million to fight Provodnikov and that was not ppv..now he's going to get a taste of a ppv check and even if it's small buy numbers it still pumps up his purse a bit more. He doesn't have a fan base but heck 250k to 400k buys isn't exactly bad it's a million bucks to him on top of his purse at worst. Plus HBO needs all the events they can get since Showtime is killing it right now. Bradley vs Mayweather isn't a fight Showtime would be interested in though..I think it does number pretty close to whatever the Guerrero vs Mayweather fight did and that was a loss for Showtime.

I'm also annoyed by the subliminal shots at Floyd. Not even because I'm a Mayweather fan. But it's so past tense now. He left HBO. Get over it. Constantly taking these Facebook-esque subliminal shots is just proving how important he was to your network. They love to go on about who he won't fight and how boring his fights are but he took on the best 154 lber in the world and HBO has had a series of snoozefest bouts lol. Mayweather is P4P #1. Bradley is undefeated. Marquez knocked Pacquiao out and it wasn't a lucky punch. And lastly, whatever movie you bought those 3D looking glasses for is never coming out. Time to move on lol

They didn't really boost Guerrero, lets' just be honest here...

The Guerrero fight had more to do with:

1. Floyd's first fight after his incarceration, and the public wondering if he lost a step
2. Floyd signing that HUGE contract and moving to Showtime
3. Floyd working with his father again after so long

If it had anything to do with Guerrero, it was either because of Ruben's antics, or wondering if he could capitalize off of Floyd's "not so sharp" performance against Cotto.

As for Bradley fighting Floyd, again., let's be real here, Tim AINT gonna more to fight Floyd. The average cap for a Pacquiao opponent, is $5M...Tim already made that against Pac. He cant sell worth a flip, so again, there's no way Floyd offers him more than $3M. If Tim wants $5M or more, then Im sure Floyd and GBP will tell him to go back and fight Pac, whether Tim is signed to GBP or not.

I get your drift about the spin, but we'll have to see how these JMM/Bradley numbers look, since they spun the hell outta both of their Pac wins, and tried to use it as a selling point. Some spins that we think are gonna bomb, end up being a good call, so who knows. I wont rule out your view of it though.
