Default How about Timothy Bradley-Jessie Vargas?

Bradley apparently has a return date March 16, Vargas doesn't have a fight scheduled at the moment. Bob Arum says "we have an opponent for Bradley" but they don't wanna announce him yet until everything is sealed and delivered.

Is it possible Arum wants to match these 2 guys up? Or would Bradley consider that 'beneath him' or 'not meaningful enough to his career' or whatever the f he says everytime he turns a fight down.

And how would a Bradley-Vargas fight play out?

I think Bradley should be fighting the Rios / Garcia's / Matthyse / Guerrero's of the boxing world if he cannot get Marquez or Pacquiao.

To be honest he has done enough not to be fighting Jessie Vargas.....but at the end of the day beggars can't be choosers so whatever at this point.

Bradley beats Jessie 115 - 113 he is just too much for him.

Aren't all of the guys you mentioned besides Rios with Golden Boy?

Bradley-Rios however i would indeed like to see, but for some reason it isn't being mentioned by Top Rank. Maybe some reason like "Bradley may well beat Rios, and Rios is a better sell and bigger potential money-maker down the line".

Yea unfortunately.....who else does Top Rank have for him to fight......Mike Jones? It turns out the move to Top Rank hasn't worked out.

Top Rank don't want him in with Rios because they know Bradley beats their next cash cow since Bradley can't draw flies!

He is basically stuck he would have been better off losing to Pac man since he won its like he is a leper

Yeah some businessman this guy is, turning down fights, signing with a promoter who lets him rot on the shelf... Still, with what he's probably got in his bank account no one should feel too sorry for him.

Yea he made a big mistake......when was the last time Top Rank made a Afro-American boxer into a star?

I can't think of one in recent times but I do remember what happened to Joshua Clottey after he fought Pacquiao

He got plenty of money and more power to him but in the same breath he has hardly been active and these are his prime years....
