Having led his star fighter, two-division titlist Tim Bradley, into battle against Manny Pacquiao twice in a two-year period, trainer Joel Diaz knows all too well of the abilities of the Filipino icon.

Pacquiao has no bigger option on the table other than a dream fight with Floyd Mayweather. The talk surrounding the matchup, one that has been discussed for the past five years, is very high again yet Diaz is unsure what to think of all the discussion.

Following his 12-round split-draw with Argentina’s Diego Chaves on Dec. 13, former two-division titlist Tim Bradley still stands as one of the game’s most talented and marketable attractions heading into the New Year.

After all, the Chaves fight was widely-viewed as a Bradley victory despite the officials scorecards reading otherwise. Speaking with Bradley’s trainer Joel Diaz, he didn’t seem to set back with the official verdict.

As with any high-profile prize fight, there are several storylines and subplots surrounding this weekend’s Manny Pacquiao vs. Tim Bradley rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

All one has to do is take a look back as the first Pacquiao-Bradley match to get a sense of how high the emotions have been.

In June of 2012, Bradley handed Pacquiao his first defeat in seven years when he won a highly-controversial split-decision verdict over the Filipino icon.

On Saturday afternoon, former three-division world champion Miguel Cotto confirmed what had already been speculated, as the Puerto Rican star announced via his personal Twitter that he will be returning to HBO’s airwaves on October 5th.

Cotto also revealed that he will be working with Top Rank, his original promoter dating back to his pro debut, while trainer Freddie Roach will serve as a new face in his corner.

Definitely some big changes for Cotto, who saw his previous two contests, decision losses to Floyd Mayweather and Austin Trout, be co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, with the former being televised by Showtime.
