Bradley will meet the hard-punching Chaves this Saturday night from The Cosmopolitan in an HBO attraction. The venue has become a nice spot for more intimate fight settings and the matchup is intriguing enough to create suspense.
Bradley is coming off of a competitive yet clear unanimous decision loss to Manny Pacquiao this past April in their rematch while Chaves too is looking to get back on the winning track after suffering a disqualification loss in the ninth round against Brandon Rios this past August, also inside of the Cosmopolitan.
Bradley’s stock is still given how much grit he showed vs. Pacquiao and there is talk of him possibly campaigning in the junior middleweight division in the future if another title is available.
