So people seem to think near the end of Bradleys contract the BobFather will offer him a fight, and he can only have the fight if he signs an extension, actually chances are is he'll do it for the Pac fight, I feel that Bradley isn't going to get any better skill wise, he's in his prime. Can he really afford another year of layoff if he refuses to sign? Isn't there any law about this? Guerrero certainly is trying to exercise bullshit. Yet what the BobFather is doing is clearly illegal

Whether Bob chooses to entertain Bradley's assertiveness or not, he'll try the same extension thing when his contract is coming to an end. Bradley messed up when he accepted that win against Pac (which it was a close fight) and he also played into Bob's shenanigans...so in a sense, he's stuck.


If he has another hissy fit and decides to sit down, then he'll either be shelved, or put in with somebody who can and will clean his clock. You know how Bob does it...he IS the law. laugh.gif

It's called the Ali Act. Bradley needs to leave TR, he cleaned out his lucrative opponents. He beat Pac, JMM, and Ruslan. Who is he going to fight next? Rios, Alvarado? He can have so many great match ups with other promotional companies. Anyway, if he does rematch Pac, I think he wins clearly. He has stepped up his game and Pac still fights the same. He is not going to outbox Bradley, Bradley is no Rios.

There's somebody for everybody...Ruslan can pull that off. I don't see Bradley calling for him anymore...he's only looking for money fights. Can't blame him, who wouldn't?

From what I know he can sue for breach if he gets shelved. He was never shelved before he was just going through litigation.
I doubt he signs again, he's building a brand. He will probably go indie and have a co promoter. He has Nike behind him he has had a signature entertaining win hes well spoken can talk a little trash as well. I think he can beat pretty much everyone in arums stable right now.

NOW, extension time is coming up. Lets remember what happened to manny when his extension came up, the controversial Bradley L happened. So if I'm Bradley I fight anyone except pac right now because with that deadlines approaching a screw job isn't far.

That only happened because Manny caught wind of how much Mayweather made against Cotto the month before. No way in hell he was gonna beat an undefeated slick black fighter and not ask for more money. Bob made sure that controversy took place....let's not forget that Arum barely lifted a finger to promote that fight.

Manny asks for more money, Bob tells him that he lost his last fight (to Bradley) and it didn't sell well (hmmm...wonder why), and that he can't afford to pay Manny that much money (whatever the amount Pac may have even thought about asking for)....end of story...the Pacman is kept honest with "facts".

Son! What makes it so bad is it could happen!

Best option? What many have said in here avoid a Pacquaio bout and perhaps take a light fight to run out the contract and leave with your belt/belts. At least leaving with the belts gives him leverage for match making and I think Arum was worried about Pacquaio leaving so he wanted the belts to stay within Top Rank so that ridiculous outcome of the first fight happened. I think Cameron is doing a great job by keeping Bradley and Arum apart so he doesn't end up roped into a situation where he could be facing an extension with zero belt leverage. One can also argue that we don't know what kind of signing bonuses these guys are getting on their extensions, so maybe just maybe the bonus for signing an extension is too great.Either way, if Bradley wants to really get a few GBP fights his best option is to hold on to the champion status and do him. Anyone know if the time Pacquaio took off after the JMM loss extends his contract due to inactivity? I know there is an issue with the brits about that with another boxer right now so i'm curious if that's the case for him as well.
