That's ten months on the shelf!!

Is Arum the new King?


Anyway, who do you see as his likely/best options? Defend the WBO welterweight title, or drop back down to 140 to reclaim his old one from Marquez? Or something else?
What makes you think they'll do a 24/7?

Bradley didn't make a mistake.

5-6 million followed by inactivity and irrelevance in the prime of his career.

He probably could've gotten 1M for a Peterson rematch in December or Alvarado in February, but the Pac payday has spoiled him. I think Dunkin and Arum are talking a bit of sense into him now ,as he'll be back in March.
It was a real bad move to avoid the Peterson fight.

I think his conduct after the Pac fight contributed to him being in such an odd situation.

Casuals know who he is now, even if it's as someone who took an unpopular decision over the previous #1.

Why wouldn't there be one?

It sucks for Bradley since all of the good opponents are with Golden Boy. Rios is likely tied up with the Alvarado rematch. Peterson and Holt are signed up. Marquez won't fight him.

Perhaps signing with Top Rank was short-sighted after all.
Was there a press conference?

Anyway, as soon as he pulled out of the Khan fight, I said right there and then that he was making a massive mistake chasing the Pac fight. What did he rake in against him - 5 or 6 million? Coupled with his inactivity and shitty fight against Casamayor, you have to wonder if it really was worth it compared to:
  • A pretty decent payday with Khan
  • Joining GBP to gain access to decent opponents. Two fights after beating Khan, at the very least, he would have had with them by now. All whilst recieving much better promotion from them, too.
  • Sitting in pole position to face Mayweather on May 4th.
That all combined is far more lucrative than what Arum's given him - a cursed gift against Pacquiao. I say cursed because since then, through little fault of his own, his reputation has been tarnished and very few people are interested in fighting him.
No...

-1+ million vs. Casamayor
-5+ million vs. Pacquiao

OR

-1.4 million vs. Khan (this is a fact, this is the money offered with no exception)
-2012, maybe two fights in that time, 1.3 million each as part of his HBO contract (also a fact, non-speculative)

So, either 6+ million for Casamayor and career exposure vs. Pacquiao OR 4 million exactly for Khan and two other fights.

I think he clearly made the best move.

Well, there seems to be no possibility of him getting an opponent that would be remotely worthwhile.

Ward is a better fighter than Bradley, and has a bigger fanbase. It was odd and unique for him to get a two part 24/7 on HBO, and that's because his opponent was the LHW king and a fellow well televised American.

You really think Bradley vs. Jones would have a 24/7?

Team JMM won't fight Bradley, they have said. I highly doubt Pacquiao faces him after what has happened in his career. Golden Boy pretty much has the whole stable at 140/47. I don't see any options. There's a reason why at the end of summer Peterson II and Provodnikov were the only two talked about fights for Bradley to have maybe fought in December.

Get in the ring with a big name fighter as soon as possible. I would like to see Bradley v.s. JMM at 147 the most.

Pretty sure this is what's next for Timothy Bradley.
