Juan Manuel Marquez, Timothy Bradley, Marquez vs BradleyJuan Manuel Marquez has finally made his choice. He has picked Timothy Bradley as his next rival and the fight will take place at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on September 14.

Why Bradley? The answer would be Why not Bradley? A fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao seems unlikely from a financial point of view, and Bradley showed some of his vulnerabilities in his performance against Ruslan Provodnikov.

Besides Bradley and Pacquiao there were other names thrown in the mix as possible opponents for Marquez; Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado were among them; but it seems that the most attractive one for Marquez and maybe even the one that makes more sense financially speaking is the fight against Timothy Bradley. This will also give Marquez the opportunity to win the WBO Welterweight title and conquering his fifth weight category, Marquez has been a Featherweight Champion (126 pounds) a Super featherweight champion (130 pounds) a Lightweight champion (135 pounds) and a Super Lightweight champion (140 pounds) .

For those that wanted to see a fifth match between Marquez and Manny Pacquiao it seems as though that is not going to happen in the short or long term. Marquez has mentioned several times that it doesn't make sense for him to have another fight with Pacman, he has already proven what he wanted to prove by beating Pacquiao in their last fight.

Timothy Bradley just won by decision against Russian Provodnikov in a fight where Bradley was close to being knocked out a couple of times, fans are still not convinced about his skills, but Bradley is younger than Marquez and a strong fighter with lots of courage, beating Marquez will finally confirm to the boxing world that he deserves his spot as a world champion.

This fight will still have to be made official but for now it seems as though Bradley and Marquez will face each other come September 14, 2013.

If this fight sticks, I'm all for it. For either fighter, it is not worth a bit. I predict that the Cali Big Foot bambilizes Cry-baby Hulkquez. This won't be a good fight. And it is not going to be shown by way of PPV. Holla!

I said this fight could potentially happen. not exactly taking credit for a "prediction" because the handwriting had been on the wall for quite a while now. after the Provodnikov fight the "handwriting on the wall" has become bold graphitti..... 12 foot tall lettering painted in bright neon colors.. My only response to the Legendary Juan Manuel Marquez is....... "DONT DO IT". The conventional view is : Marquez Stops Bradley in a toe to toe Boxing Exibition! The reality: Bradley will out hustle,... out scuffle, out box and out fox the former Lightweight Icon from beginning to end. I won't spend much time defending my comments.... The results will be testimony enough.

Bradley is going to get knocked out. Jmm will lure him in and use his ped one punch killing new power to do it.


Radam G

And the fight is not happening. Holla!

@Amayseng, roids-and-PEDs up Hulkquez may not be able to catch the Cali Foot Big/Cali Cranium Crusher. Danggit! I musta' fo'got! Hulkquez would step on one of Tim Bradley's size 13 dogs, and KaBOOM! Upside that size nine cranium. WTF! This will a fight of freaks. Some real freaks-in-a-circus jive. Double fudging threatre of the unexpected got me again. Now it got conducting double-freak shows. Hehehe! Holla!

Bradley deserves some attention since he went toe to toe and might possibly be brain damaged. no fav in this match. might be a good fight or a short fight stopped on cuts by some big head butts

Battle of the Pacquiao conquerors, Marquez whoop Bradley and then defeat pacquiao in a 5th rematch


Radam G

Keep dreaming and fibbing to yourself. Bradley is no Omar. Tim was used as a baby of tar. Or is that tar baby. Neither one of these chumps can beat Da Manny. Only on roids and PEDs and a legion of the dark society. Holla!


amayseng

jmm will stink out the joint for a few rounds forcing the damaged and lying to himself bradley to keep coming in thinking he can out fight and out slug everyone on earth... bradleys bravado is false. he got two gift wins, the second against the russian in which he was concussed probably 3 different times.. bradley has himself fooled and thinks he has hopkins chin and ray leonards combination punching... jmm will lure him into traps and when he buzzes him he will properly finish him off in knockout fashion. truth

Radam you're contradicting yourself you even admitted during the aftermath of the pacquiao's loss that it wasn't PED's, it was skill. Pacquiao can't beat a slick mobile boxer whose fully hydrated. He's the catch weight queen who made his fame at welterweight by defeating washed up, broken, and dehydrated welterweights. And chill with your racist jive, "tar baby". And radam you haven't been accurate with your predictions lately either. So why don't keep your ranting and raving to yourself for once, enough of your broken ebonics


chicanito

True that, Madam G IS in fact contradicting himself..i guess the bitterness of his mythical mexicutioner getting his @ss KAO'ED got the best of him...by the way Madam G..the last i remember..it was the manny p. that was crying on live philipine television alongside his woman, just saying


Radam G

Of course, Da Manny LOST! El mundo saw it. He got KTFO! Wow! There are NO contradictions of that! Maybe somebody is confusing himself by trying to control the flow and thinking of /readers/posters. By the way, tar baby is not a racist term, anymore than "the skillet is calling kettle pot black." Look up the term. I don't use racism. Maybe you are talking about some hood or street slanguage. And on that type of tar baby, I cannot help you. [The words tar, black and dark do not belong to any race and or are not derogatory toward any race unless one is using racism and bigotry; as creepos and the BIG Ls use racist and bigoted words on me at every turn. And these clowns don't know how pathetic they are. And how much that they are turning off everybodeee and dey momma in this Universe.] Wow! Don't cause a wreck, just check. Racist and bigoted comments are for losers with juvenile, isolated minds. All of them are on my ignore list. And BTW, I'm not posting in Ebonics. I'm posting in boxonomics and boxing slanguage, and only about five percent of it came from blacks into the hurt bitnezz. Black Americans were discriminated against in boxing for a long TIME. So most of their slanguage did catch on in boxing. Those who are in the real-life hurt bitnezz game KNOW dat, JACK! Maybe in this new frontier of cyberspace, you don't know, so off you try to show. But all those in da know KNOW! Why in double fudge would I post in "ebonics" any WAY! Hate da game, not da gamers, playa! As Uncle Roger May says: "Most people don't sh*t 'bout boksin!'" Besides, I doubt that I'm fluent in Ebonics. I'm always asking a translator: "What da double fudge did he say?" And I've not been off on my predictions, lately. I just have been wrong, recently. I'm still batting an average of .855 with 246 homeruns in seven years. I'm straight. And will stay that way. Holla!


Carmine Cas

Radam you were just saying that Marquez needs PED's to beat pacquiao directly after your idol was rendered unconscious, you were an avid supporter of his trickery and great counter punching that undid pacquiao. I guess you're just bitter from the defeat. And tar baby can be interpreted as racist, not everyone is stuck in your small ethnocentric world. And I am just offering these readers a different perspective instead of the constant propaganda that you spew out via broken english JILL! You're the angry here because there disagreement with your biased assertions. Da Manny is a phony at welterweight.


Radam G

Juan Manuel Hulkquez and the Cali Cranium Crusher/Big Foot will have one sorry roids-and-PEDs pridefight for peanuts. Hahaha! WTF! They refusing to dance with Da Manny for up to 15mil, because they won't take the test by VADA and want it done by missing-dat-syet, on-da-take USADA. The roids-and-PEDs twins will bytch dance with one another for a couple mil a piece. This just shows you how the truth and pride in not getting caught will affect the financial judgement of pugilists freaking on dat syet. Wow! All for an eye-candy body muscular look. Holla!


amayseng

Of its ppv it will bomb.
