Yes I know top rank is Bradleys promotional company but should Floyd call out the guy who (technically) beat Bradley? It would be a power move on his part

What do you guys think?

No, no more undeserved pay days for Bradley. Bradley should just fight Zab or Lamont Peterson

I get where your coming from. But he bear lamont pretty convincingly and its ironic that you don't want Bradley to get a big pay day but you want zab to get one lol.. but they are both Jr welterweights so those fights probably wouldn't happen

call him out. i feel like at this point in floyd career is shouldn't matter who he fights he will still end up doing big numbers and making big money.

^^ true and besides a rematch with cotto or a fight with pac, a fight with the guy that beat pac would undoubtedly do numbers. Plus he would back arum into a corner

I'm sorry but Bradley isn't just appealing to even watch. He has no special attribute to him. No real good punching power, no appealing fighting style. Nothing. But he's still young and will improve. But comparing him to new guys coming up like Garcia, Khan, Lopez, Canelo...he's pretty much dull and bland.

But the only thing he has is a resume of OFFICIALLY defeating Pacquiao and the WBO belt. I say ride it till its there.


He should fight Guerero for his fake belt. Other than that, i don't see any fights for him. Everyone has a dancing partner till next year lol.

he's been left without a date to the prom

wow. way to sell the guy short.

i think he was the best at 140 and i think he beats all the guys u named. he may not be flashy...but he is definitely solid.

I'm not selling him short, i'm just bein real as a boxing fan. He is undefeated at 140 but take a look at his highlights. His best fight was Lamont Peterson. The Alexander fight was just boring as hell. But like i said, he's still young. Hoping that he gets better than just being a solid fighter.

Peterson isn't the same fighter that he was that night which was years ago. It would be very different if they faced off now

i feel like at this point in time he should clean out the best in his division. i struggle to place floyd among the best of all time when it comes to divisional rankings like say welterweight or lightweight.

I see where the OP is comming from,

If you forget the promoters, the politics and the bullshit, In theory, Floyd fights Tim, Floyd beats Tim in the eyes of everyone even lets say maybe stops him late. It would do what Manny couldn't do and woiuld be a great way to promote their fight. But I don't think Bradley will be stopped, and with two good feet for Tim and inactivity for Mayweather, he might have some problems, winning over Bradley 116-112 and a closer than expected 115-113 (twice) for Floyd. A close fight, with Floyd doing more, but not the much more he would have done in his prime. This fight is a large risk and no monetary reward type of match.

I think your on point.

But I meant just call him our because I doubt arum would allow it because it could make manny look extremely bad. But floyd would definitely back him into a corner by doing so

lets leave Peterson and Zab to each other

Idk if your being sarcastic or not but I agree with what you said..
Lamont got beat pretty easily by Bradley and I'm pretty sure they are a Jr welterweight and Bradley last fought as a welter
mgrover
nah am not being sarcastic i want to see a peterson judah fight

Me too, I think that fight can turn into a good scrap. I feel like most of the people I talk to don't think much of it

Garbage! Bradley deserve another payday moreso than Pac because Tim is the champ whether you agree with it/like it or not!!

If Pac was so confident that he beat Brad then he should take the fight to redeem his belt and prove to the world how easy it really was.

Pac lost that fight fair and square, 2 judges saw it for Bradley and based on the slo-mo vids I've seen of the fight then Tim deserved it as well.

Well according to the credible numbers below only 1% of the world saw Bradley winning, even though you a whole bunch of other people ringside some of the press and those two other judges saw it going for Bradley lol

Btw pacquiao Damn near perfected getting passes for everything, including taking a unnecessary fourth fight with a guy who he "clearly" thought he beat the first three times

QUOTE (boxingloner @ Sep 19 2012, 02:35 PM) *
Well 99% of the boxing world knows that pacquiao really won that fight. So just because that 1% thinks he lost means he should do a rematch ASAP? I know that all losses should be avenged and i know they will fight eventually but right now pacquiao vs Marquez is a better fight ands needs more closure.

Anyways all i was originally saying is that people will criticize pacquiao for doing or saying something but give others passes for that same stuff.
