On March 16, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley found himself in a position some may not have expected, as he was deadlocked in a fire fight with Ruslan Provodnikov.

Facing off with the durable Russian inside of the Home Depot Center (now the StubHub Center) in Carson, Calif. on HBO’s airwaves, Bradley may have taken much more punishment than he would have preferred, yet he was also able to showcase an abundance of heart and grit that helped him push towards a unanimous decision victory.

Bradley now finds himself lined up with an even bigger opportunity, as he is scheduled to defend his belt on Oct. 12 inside of the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas against Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez.

And while the fight is an excellent matchup, Bradley doesn’t seem so sure he will be following through with the match.

During a recent interview with The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene’s official audio show, the 29-year old champion expressed his frustrations and concerns about the drug testing dilemma surrounding the match.

Moments before the tense weigh-in between Floyd Mayweather and Robert Guerrero, I crossed paths with Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez.

Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO’s) defends his WBC welterweight crown later tonight against Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in a Showtime pay per view attraction and Marquez showed himself to be intrigued when asked for his thoughts on the matchup.

“I think this is a tough fight for the two fighters, but the fight is a tougher fight for Guerrero [because of] Mayweather’s style,” stated the four-division champion. “His speed, he counterpunches very good. It’s a difficult style.”

Roger Mayweather still wants Manny Pacquiao, a Juan Manuel Marquez rematch, and Tim Bradley for Floyd



By Chris Robinson

During a recent swing through the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, I again caught up with outspoken trainer and former two-division world champion Roger Mayweather.

And while the boxing world continues to wait for an official word on who Roger’s nephew and undefeated pound for pound star Floyd Mayweather will face next, the elder Mayweather seems to be taking the process in with a nonchalant attitude.

“There’s still fights out there for Floyd,” Roger would explain when asked of Floyd’s May 4th return to the MGM Grand.

“There’s still a lot of money to be made,” Roger added. “Hopefully the fights he’s going to have is going to be big, big fights. The next three fights should be big.”
