Even after Floyd goes, Golden Boy has all the relevant names around welter and Bradley will never be a big enough star on his own to compel them to work with Top Rank.

Agreed, he will simply have to take the hard route to get there, he doesnt need Pacquiao, he can make a name for himself it will just require getting the right fights, of which Guerrero and Peterson are not the right fights.

He already beat the shit out of peterson why move down to fight him move up and on to bigger and better things let them hate all they want just keep winning and the bigger money will be there

How is he going to get those right fights when his promoter doesn't play nice with others unless they hold all of the cards and they have no one of note at welter who's actually interested in fighting him?

He should have taken the Khan fight all that time ago. That way he would have trounced Khan and became the most popular fighter around. He might have gotten a Floyd fight off that.

Marquez has made it clear he's not interested in Bradley, and since Rios has more draw potential than Tim and would also lose to him, I see little reason to expect that fight to be made in the near future.

People have short memories. Bradley wanted the Khan fight when Khan didn't. When Khan suggested that guys like Bradley should have a tournament in order to sort out the man to fight him (delusional with regard to his own importance, as usual). Then, when Khan undoubtedly, being from the same basic camp as Pacquiao, knew damned good and well that Bradley was trying to score a Pacquiao fight, which almost every fighter looking to make the big score was trying to do for years, Khan decided to chirp up and act like Bradley was ducking him when he had moved on to trying to catch bigger fish. It's actually quite funny that Bradley gets flack for simply moving on to a bigger payday with an infinitely better and more dangerous fighter.

Not fighting Khan was the best damn move Tim could have made, why the hell would he jeopardize a huge payday against Pacquiao with a risky fight that pays relative peanuts? You think Bradley gives a shit he aint getting any high profile fights, course he doesnt, he's sitting back chilling with the $5 mill he scooped off fighting Manny. And you fools feel sorry for him? Most fighters aren't in this for the love, Bradleys just a kid from the hood trying make a living.

Some of you really got no idea about business. Props to Tim
