Full Version: Should Bradley Stay with Top Rank?

Tim Bradley's contract with Top Rank comes to and end I believe at the end of this year or early next year. If you were Bradley what would you do?

Personally, Bradley should give Bob the deuces and be a free agent. The only fighters Bradley will be fighting is Rios and Alvarado. Pac ain't fighting Bradley again. And Marquez may retire after their fight.

If Bradly does leave TR then he can vouch for a fight with Mayweather. Call me crazy, but I think Bradley would give Mayweather fits with his fighting style. It would be an interesting match up. Plus I would love to see Bradley against Golden Boys 140-147 fighters. Imagine Maidana against Bradley or even Garcia. It would be damn good fight. Bradley has more options in other pastures.

This is a tricky question. Right now it looks like GB has 140-154 on lock. But that could all change in a year or two. 3 years ago TR had all the talent at WW and GBs roster was shit. But if I were Bradley I would leave.

He has no choice but to stay. You know how the TR contract goes...at the 11th hour of a fighter's contract ending, Arum already has an extension in place which involves a decent opponent. Sign for the fight, and there's your extension...if you;re not paying attention.

Bradley left Shaw in the same manner, as far as sitting out and following through with litigation...me thinks this wont work well if he tries it with Arum.

i don't ever recall hearing the length of his contract or anything for that matter about it. he's not going anywhere anytime soon. you don't just get out of deals with the devil.

If Bradley beat JMM and Pac beats Rios you best believe that Arum would put Pac against Bradley again.Why wouldnt he?
sduck
NO. Arum is going to keep him under the bus and use him, pretty sure he's already doing that now.

He should but it's just not going to happen. He's going to need a rockstar legal team to get him out of that contract before it's up if that's the route he wants to take

Lmao at "rockstar legal team"!

Does anybody find it funny how Bob absolutely sucks at promoting black fighters and they hardly put substantial money in his pockets, but he gives them the most shit when they're trying to get out of their contracts?

Arum always finds a way to win, so there's your answer.

Cshel that is my point bro, Arum will not promote Tim the way he should be promoted. If he beats JMM then Bradley will be fighting Jessie Vargas next. He won't even get Mike Alvarado or Rios. He should leave while he still has a name. Look at what is happening to Rigondeaux! He beats Donaire and he can't buy a fight. Both Rigondeaux and Tim needs to go somewhere else.

Lol well its true, he'd need a legal team that has a great reputation and that won't sell him out.

I find it funny as well, I just don't think he knows how to connect with black fighters, sure he promoted some back in his early days but those fighters really promoted themselves with their charisma like Ali and SRL

No, Golden Boy will give him the bigger fights, maybe even a Mayweather shot if he beats another Welterweight champion.

If it means getting a fight with Mayweather, than Yes he should.

True a fight with mayweather may be the equivalent of what he would make with arum for his whole career lol.

No, Arum totally dismiss his black/AA fighters unless they brawl like senseless animals or something, why should he stay and be a slave to the ridiculous style that Arum and HBO want TB to fight; I don't care what anyone says there is simply no way they can tell me that they had nothing to do with the way that Bradley fought Provo in that last fight.

Anyone who has watched all of TB's previous fights knows that he doesn't fight like a Brawler, he picked Pac apart and though many people do not agree with that decision it become clear to see when you slow it down and turn down the volume to see how easily he was able to avoid Manny's punches and how he ate him up over the course of the entire fight with a jab that never missed but was never scored by the stupidly blinded screaming fans.

Any smart AA fighters will stay away from TR, any smart Mexican will definitely want to sign with TR if he has a brawling style.
