Mayweather obviously schools Bradley pretty easily in my opinion, Bradley will try and make it an ugly fight as usual and come in head first looking to land rabbit punches and sneaky shots whenever he can when they're close up.

I don't think the fight will be much of a spectacle and I just can't really think of anything at all Bradley has in his locker that could possibly trouble Mayweather.

I was wondering who else Floyd would fight when they said Guerrero was out and I completely escaped Tim Bradley, that wouldmake the most sense since he has that "victory" over pacman

I agree, even on the inside I can't see Bradley doing much effectively against Floyd

Is this Schaefer trying to bluff everyone then?

*Shrugs Shoulders*

I like Bradley, The way he performed against Pacquiao is lost in the contreversy of the decision but he came back really well in that fight espicially with the injuries he sustained and the way Pacquiao performed in the 4th Marquez fight it makes his display look a little better from my POV.

As for this fight, He will be competitive but he lacks the power to truly trouble Mayweather. He will be effective, but it's just a tough fight from him espicially coming off a long lay off.

I think he's cashed out on these big fights. I don't get impression Bradley's looking to stick around in sport. Not as active as he once was, that's effected him IMO.

I'd kinda prefer the Guerrero fight to this..

I reckon that'll be it, especially if they're leading up to Floyd - Canelo later in the year as has been rumoured.

Personally I'd fecking love that if they fought mid-September when I'm in Vegas.

Bradley will box cautiously off the back foot I think, rather than come forward knowing he's likely to be counter punched he'll wait for Floyd to come to him then try and clinch continually hoping to use his noggin to his advantage whilst doing so then throw lots of short but clubbing type of punches on the inside trying to rough Floyd up a bit and just do damage any way he can when he is not at risk of being countered cleanly.

Bradley does have a reasonably effective style though even if it is ugly and seems to lack any distinct flair or technique. He does seem to find ways of unsettling his opponents and making them fight his fight, I just think Floyd is just too good to lose any way the fight ends up panning out.

I'm surprised at Floyd choosing Bradley though I thought he would prefer Guerrero style wise, I'd rather watch that than Bradley. He is like the WW Andre Ward but not as good.

I like it, Trout's physical dimensions and speed and skill trouble Mayweather as well as his stance. Floyd's not keen on lefty's as we know so Trout poses some interesting questions and because he's a LMW and natural at that weight and has those physical attributes it makes it a tougher nights work for Mayweather and i believe Trout is a world class fighter and coming into prime but also seems mentally strong.

If they fight in September it will be September 14th. September 16th is Mexican independence day so theres always a big fight here that weekend.

It is a good fight to make but I don't really have much interest in Mayweather anymore

Do you think Floyd will fight Trout?

Trout doesn't have a huge name overall and it might not be the biggest earner out there and I think we can safely say that Mayweather is predominantly money orientated!

I'd love to see it but somehow I see him going for someone with a bit more of a following although his options are slightly limited I guess as he's fought most people already around his weight class. Canelo would be a huge fight but I don't think he'd be too keen on that one....
