Default So.. if Bradley moves up to WW to face Mike Jones.. does he stand a chance??

Bradley is 5'6''... short reach and doesn't punch hard and is up against a six foot heavier fighter... Bradley is aggressive with his output... but is that enough? Does he actually stand a chance?

Thoughts.....

It could look like the Kendall Holt fight, but Mike is a killer and would Ko any fighter under 154.

bradley doesn't have a chance in hell of beating Mike JOnes. Is mentally tough, has the reach, power, and technique to destroy Tim.

I hope they don't make that fight.

Bradley can carry the weight just fine-

And Carmen Basilio was 5'6"... He wasn't so bad. Also moved up to middle (small at 155 or so), but still competed and made a good account of himself.

Haven't seen much of Jones, but Bradley's attitude, pressure, and underrated skills probably win him the fight.

Of course. We saw Jones struggle with pressure fighters Bradley is one of the best today and has quick footmovement to hone in on Jones. Where I think Jones might give Bradley problems is obviously his reach, but for how long Jones can keep that up we'll see. Jones would not only have to be ready physically , but mentally and hes going to have to find a way to neutralize Bradleys inside game, but I aint sayin how cuz Id want Bradley to win! Bradley is a very physical fighter that can wear you down but he can box too and his boxing is underrated. I think it would resemble alot to the Holt fight, but Im not sure if any knockdowns will happen.

Yeah my thoughts too.. but I honestly don't think Jones would ko Mayweather.... I have to see more of him to determine that.. but I know he kills Bradley

Jones takes this one! He's way bigger than Bradley and he's got some good skills. BTW we have no idea how Bradley carries the weight! The last time he moved up he didn't look that impressive. BTW let's not mention Carmen Basilio please.

Yeah I see a similar kind of fight. It would be a tough fight for Bradley but Jones just isn't in that class. Jones is a contender while Bradley is a pound for pound star.

Bradley has better technique, better skills on every level, and more speed. He only lacks power.

I like Bradley but Bradley caint **** with Mike Jones. Who? MIKE JONES!!!! . i like the fight better for Joneses sake.It would push him forward and open up better opertunities for him to prove that hes the next class act in the welters. Hes got some big shoes to fill.AKA MONEY.
