Rumor Mill Says Tim Bradley Vs. Brandon Rios In the Works

The mill is grinding, once again. We’re hearing that Tim Bradley is going to tangle with Brandon Rios, Nov. 7, in Los Angeles.

That scrap, featuring members of the Top Rank crew, would be much anticipated, being that Bradley impressed mightily in his last tangle, vs. Jessie Vargas, and Rios, it seems, is dialed into training, doing 5 AM road-work, and but of course has a personality which makes him must see.

I presume HBO would televise this pitting off A grade names…

I reached out to Bradley, and a Rios contact to verify and didn’t hear back.

Rios’ trainer, Robert Garcia, told me Tuesday night he hadn’t heard that, but hadn’t been in contact with Rios manager Cameron Dunkin in a few weeks, so he was out of that loop.

“I’ve been very busy training Mikey (Garcia, his brother) and a young fighter who is fighting in LA Friday,” he told me.

Oh, and while we are at it, we think it possible that a Walters versus Yuriorkis Gamboa clash gets made. Walters, a Top Rank ace, was on track to tangle with Vasyl Lomachenko, but his weight class is up in the air. Gamboa, who was with 50 Cent, who exited the space, at around 130 pounds would make sense, as Walters needs a step up scrap and the Cuban has a name, and has faded to the point where he’d be seen as a steppingstone.

Fans, if that one gets made, who you like? Bradley I think is the favorite…But what say you? And what about Walters versus Gamboa? TALK TO ME!

That is a rumor that I hope comes true. A very fan friendly fight. Some questions will be asked. Does Bradley have any damage from all the tough fights he has been in? Same question for Rios. Will Bradley brawl of box?(he always winds up brawling at some point so maybe the question is already answered?) I think we know what Rios will do but what will Bradley do. Can Rios muscle Bradley on the inside? Can either of these guys stop the other one? I say yes. I look forward to this fight if it happens, and if it does it should be in Cali. All you Cali guys will have a treat.


-Froggy :

Bradley, of course should be the favorite ! I say Bradley wins fairly easily or he wins a tough fight, it's all up to him !


-brownsugar :

So Sadam Ali was finally either coerced or convinced to step aside after all. I knew neither Bradley or B A, wanted that work. Maybe next time. A lot of punches will land in this fight and we know who the winner will be, but it should be fun.


-Radam G :

Sadam Ali is hiding in a hole like his namesake Saddam Hussein did when the Yanks were sent to stage an unlawful, illegal war in Iraq by U.S. Government stanks. Sadam Ali doesn't want any. And even his trainer said that Ali is not "quite ready yet." And you can pull that up on YouTube. And the rumor mill ain't worth an ant's pi$$ dripping down a molehill. But the real deal, give you the pugvine will. And it is true blue. Bam Bam and the Cali Cranium Crusher are in negotiating to do da do. And the winner will likely give the making-a-comeback Da Manny in March or April. Holla!


-deepwater2 :

More questions. Bradley let go of his trainer. He will have a brand new trailer for this fight. Some reports are mentioning Teddy Atlas as the replacement. It would be entertaining to hear Teddy in a corner again, but would he mesh well with Bradley? What can Teddy bring to the table to improve Bradley? At this stage of the game can Bradley afford to change up the head trainer?

Pugs of the Bradley type always mess up a good thing that is working, because a POS tell them that they can do better without such-and-such trainer who started them from scratch. And that ain't nuffin' but hustling bulljive. Chemistry is 90 percent of the clue and getting the win between a trainer and a pug. Bradley better drop da bullsyet and call trainer Joel Diaz up, take him back and give him a BIG hug. Without the right chemistry of a superb trainer, a pug may as well bust himself in the belly and up in da mug. Having all the power in the world will not work without in the right type of socket is the plug. Holla!

I thought Bradley was fighting Saddam Ali......Someone here has no guts! Rios has seen his better day!

Sadam Ali's trainer did not want that work for his charge. Holla!


-Radam G :

Hear it for yourself. Team Ali is just cruising with marshmallows and not bruising with the BIG boys. Team Ali's interest is around the top 10 to 15. He does not want any meat grinders.

I thought the same thing Bernie Campbell,.... "WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON?". Did Ali grow cold feet? and punk out?.....Did Oscar accept some of Arums " step to the left " money? The closer l looked the more bizaare the view became. 8-7-15 Bradley begins voicing "his personal prerogative to fight Rios" ... More fan friendly he says. 8-7-15 Things become even more suspect, Arum says he'll have a little sit down with Oscar, make a mutually acceptable deal to get Ali to step aside and make the Rios fight. Arum claims Ali vs Bradley for title is an "UNSELLABLE FIGHT". According to Arum, Ali's own mama isn't interested in the fight. 8-14-15....The TSS's own Editor in Chief Michael Woods asks Sadam Ali if he would except " Any " amount of money to step aside from his title shot with Bradley (See the conversation on Twitter for yourself, you may be surprised by Ali's response)... The kid really wants this fight. 8-29-15....Again on Twitter, Ali says he's not stepping away from his title shot against Bradley for ANY amount of money. 8-10-15... OK quick flashback.... On Aug 10, De la Hoya says he'll listen to Arum's proposal, Oscar made it clear that his guy is ready for the shot. But if its a decent deal he may consider. The WBO gave the promoters of Bradley vs Ali 30 days to get the fight made. What the exact start date is,... I do not know. However the WBO has no problem allowing the promoters extra time to squeeze in a higher profile fight if both sides can work matters out. It is still yet to be seen if Ali will remain true to his August 29th declaration of refusing to yield his place in line for any amount of cash?... Or if Oscar will pull rank?....Or if the WBO will bend ( break ) its own rules if Ali remains firm and permit Top Rank to stage an unnecessary and one sided affair in lieu of fight that I personally believe Bradley will lose?.. Who does Bradley think he is? Mayweather? I guess according to Arum, any scenario in which your fighter may not win could potentially make a fight unsaleable. More will be revealed. STAY TUNED !!!!


-Radam G :

Nobody is going to give Ali side-aside money. He is a bum. And doesn't want this fight plum. Otherwise he would be getting ready to dance with Bradley in Abu Dhabi. But he is not in the class of Bradley. He is a top 10-to-15 fighter. And he want to fight a pug that is likewise. Dude has been a pro seven years. And has not done much of syet. In the amateurs, he was nearly kicked off theU.S. Olympic Team for using roids and other PEDs syet. Holla!


-Radam G :

If Ali wasn't such a scare, true phony, it would be a good time for him to challenge Tim Bradley. Bradley has dumped his trainer, and is henpecked and double screwed up in the head from his manager/wife. OMFG! These pugs never learned that you have to keep the XX chromosomes of a wife or girlfriend outta your boksing business. These creatures will ruin all good things about your career. Just holla at how badly "Iron" Mike and Sugar Shane -- to name two pugs -- sunk after they gave the control of their scrapping to wives. Robin Givens and Jin Mosley put it on them. I have seen this play too many times. Tim Bradley is over-cooked meat now. All you have to do is just put a fork in him. And he will fall apart. I'm predicting that he will lose his next scrap to Rios. And probably by kayoed. The Cali Cranium Crusher is now pu$$y-whipped crazy to da maximum. And that is a dangerous thing for a pug. No hate to the XX chromosomes crew, but Y'all got dat thang that will screw up a man's brain. And with the one he loves, he will believe that he is walking in the rain. When his arse is just a run-off-the-track train. Holla!

Poor Tim. A wife should be a wife and a manager should be a manager. I don't think it will end well for Tim. It seems his wife says no to a Rios bout so there goes that fight. I won't be surprised if tsAH sends in the Watson family to talk up Mrs Bradley

I didn't want to do overkill, but I was thinking that too. That Bradley's wifey would get a visit from the Watsons. And Tim would be off to signing with tsAH. Holla!

It all started in the "Garden of Eden." Adam got more than he could handle. Eve spreaded open those legs. And he went to work. TOOOORRRRRNNNNNN IT UP! And ever since then, a dame, damsel or doll can throw it on a weak-for-it dude, and control him like a lost pup. Hehehe! No hate to the controllers. I ain't got nuffin' but luv fo' ya!' Yall know me. I'm down with O-P-P. And will always call a spade a spade. And never hide in the shade. Holla!


-brownsugar :

Joel Diaz just did the dumbest thing I've ever seen a trainer do to one of his fighters. You don't give an indepth interview about the wife of a man that you have a close relationship with. Whether it's true or not, you don't provide public criticism about about cha boy, your main dude, telling the world the guy is p*ssy- whooped, henpecked or is being forced into making detrimental decisions because he's being dominated by his wife. All of that unnecessary talk suggests that Bradley is a victim of a situation that basically goes against nature. Just the fact that Joel would say something about Bradley's wife in a public forum suggests that Joel Diaz was never a true friend in the first place. If he is capable of dropping a bombshell like this, what else is he capable of.... In the neighborhood this type of behavior is know as being "Triflin'". As far as Mrs Bradley becoming a manager being a bad thing, look at it this way. Why should she limit herself because of the lowered expectations of everybody else. I once tried to find employment in Ohio many years ago as a truck driver, the trucking companies never gave me an opportunity. They said I had to have a minimum of five years experience. I went to Atlanta GA and the boss told me he would train me himself on the parking lot and left me to practice on the back part of the lot until I could pass a temporary license test. Kathy Duva is a women who said she learned the business from her husband. Why would Mrs Bradley have any less potential? Just sayin' In the meantime Bradley should Bit#h slap J. D. for bringing that noise to the internet. Even if it is true... A friend would not have made it public news.


-Radam G :

Joel Diaz did the right thing. The truthful thing. And pure hell for Bradley, it is going to bring. His best day as a pug are over, Bradley can now sing. He is a POS that is severely pu$$y whipped to da maximum. And trainer JD is finished with him. And now Bradley will find out the hard way that a whispering wifey to a hubby in boksing is trouble. And trouble comes double. Holla at how the trainer that made the Cranium Crusher is handling it:

Yep and we are genetically programmed to fall for that p***y and follow it around like lost puppies!
