For Timothy Bradley, the night of Saturday, Oct. 12 will forever stand as an essential part of his makeup as a fighter.

A slight underdog heading into his match with Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez inside of the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Bradley (31-0, 12 KO’s) produced perhaps his most disciplined and intelligent fight as a professional in capturing a split-decision verdict following twelve tense rounds of action.

And while Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KO’s) was dangerous every second of the bout, Bradley found a way to neutralize his offense despite absorbing the occasional heavy shot.

At the post-fight press conference, Bradley was asked if he feels a victory over Marquez, one of the best Mexican fighters of all time, would finally get him the respect he feels he has been lacking.

On Saturday night, Palm Springs native Tim Bradley produced perhaps the most complete performance of his career in defeating Juan Manuel Marquez over twelve tense rounds.

After the final bell sounded, two tallies ready 116-112 and 115-113 favored Bradley, granting him the split-decision victory over Marquez, who also received a 115-113 nod.

Throughout the fight, Bradley showed great reflexes, a quick jab, and excellent movement with his legs. Marquez landed the occasional blow to get the crowd into the fight, but ultimately the Mexico City star simply failed to get into enough of an offensive rhythm that would have turned the tide of the fight.

At the post-fight press conference, Marquez’s longtime trainer Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Beristain seemed gracious when speaking to the press.

On Thursday afternoon, esteemed trainer Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Beristain could be found inside of the Indio Boys and Girls Club in the Coachella Valley of California.

Beristain was within reach of his longtime pupil and former two-division champion Rafael Marquez, whom he has reconnected with as he heads into a pivotal clash on Saturday night against Efrain Esquivias at the nearby Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

After a few moments of discussing some aspects of the Marquez-Esquivias bout, I asked Beristain for a few updates on the training camp of Rafael’s older brother Juan Manuel down in Mexico City.

Juan Manuel is prepping for an Oct. 12 encounter with formidable WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley, who ironically trains out of the same facility that Beristain was present in on Thursday.

Speaking through Golden Boy Promotions PR Director Ramiro Gonzales, Beristain highlighted his charge’s physical state of being pristine despite the fight with Bradley still over a month away.

According to a report from Ben Thompson of FightHype.com this past week, WBC junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is considering the addition of a new strength and conditioning coach to his team ahead of his September return to the ring.

Alvarez is coming off of his biggest win as a professional on April 20th, as he defeated a very determined Austin Trout over twelve competitive rounds inside of the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Despite the victory, Alvarez seemed to slow down over the second half of the fight, with his work rate noticeably dipping.

One of the men said to be in consideration by Alvarez is the controversial Angel Heredia, who confirmed the reports.

“I’ve been getting a lot of calls from several people in Mexico,” Heredia would tell me recently. “But they didn’t specify exactly what the whole situation was. At this point, yeah, I’m assuming that he’s looking for a conditioning coach. I know that people from Mexico have been calling me and have been leaving a few messages, but nothing concrete.”
