Bradley's impressive record includes victories over the always-tough Jorge Padilla, the strong Francisco Rincon, former undefeated boxer Eli Addison, the never kayoed Arturo Urena, whom Bradley dispatched in three rounds with a thunderous right hand, and his latest opponent Martin Ramirez, who was knocked out in five rounds. On his ascension through the ranks, Bradley has conquered the WBC Youth titles in the jr. welter and welterweight divisions.
"I have challenged Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for the past three months and I have not heard a word from him, not a peep," said Bradley from his training camp in Palm Springs. "I don't want to sound like a broken record but I think Junior is scared of me. So instead of worrying about a guy that will run away, I'll fight those brave ones who want to mix it up with me in the ring," concluded Bradley.
Bradley's next opponent, Alfonso "Poncho" Sanchez, hails from Mexico City, and has an impressive record of 20-5, 18 KOs. He has fought some of the top contenders in three different weight divisions such as Mickey Ward, Vincent Phillips, Eleazar Contreras and Julio Cesar Garcia. The experienced Sanchez plans to dethrone the young Bradley with his powerful hands in the main event of "Path to Glory."
In addition, Danny "El Oso" Garcia (5-0, 3 KOs) from Pomona will face Derek Andrews (6-3-1, 2 KOs) from Forth Worth, TX, in a six round super middleweight battle. Also from Pomona, Ivan "Sitting Bull" Stovall (5-1, 3 KOs) will face Cromwell Gordon (2-5, 2 KOs) from Los Angeles, in another six round super middleweight scrap.
In the cruiserweight division, Carlos "Chucky" Martin (4-0-1) from Chino Hills, will face Alejandro Virgen (5-5-2, 4 KOs) from Los Angeles, in what could be an all-out-war. Finally, featherweights Osvaldo Medina (1-0) from La Habra, will face Freudis Rojas (0-2) from Guantanamo, Cuba, in a four round fight.
