Bradley: Ain’t no 40-year-old [Marquez] going to whip my a**

marquez545WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (30-0, 12 KO’s) figures that he’ll beat 40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KO’s) simply by being the younger guy on October 12th in their fight at the Thomas & Mack Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Bradley has not looked good in his last two fights against Manny Pacquiao and Ruslan Provodnikov. Bradley’s not really coming from a position of strength. He was given a gift decision over Pacquiao after spending much of the time running.

In Bradley’s last fight against Provodnikov, he was hurt multiple times and knocked down when he made the mistake of trying to punch with him. Bradley made a decent looking fighter look like a great one in that fight, and he should consider himself very lucky that he got the win. Continue reading
