Timothy Bradley is coming off a decision loss to Manny Pacquiao in their April rematch, but his promoter, Bob Arum, is considering a major fight for him later this year.

Among the potential opponents: Miguel Cotto, who challenges Sergio Martinez for the middleweight championship on Saturday night.

“We’ve discussed certain opponents, and we’ll look and see,” Arum said on the Friday before Martinez-Cotto. “Remember, there are certain fights, like tomorrow night, which may have an influence. I mean, if Miguel wins, I think a lot of people might want to see a Miguel-Bradley fight.”

Though Cotto would be the middleweight champion if he beats Martinez, he would likely be fighting at a lighter weight, Arum said. Indeed, after Arum spoke, Cotto would check in at 155 pounds for a bout with a 159-pound limit.

Bradley is a former 140- and 147-pound titleholder. He re-signed with Top Rank earlier this year.

“We’ve made him, I think, a major star,” Arum said. “Timothy is a great fighter, a great kid, and he’s great in the ring. People want to see him fight. And so there are a lot of big fights out there for Tim. We made a lot of money, and we’ll continue to make him a lot of money.”

[QUOTE=mathed] Tim would school Cotto to a points victory. Tim, on his worst night ever, beat one of the best pressure fighters out there in Provo. He beat an ATG counter puncher and master boxer in JMM. He lost on points after pulling a leg muscle to another ATG and barely took any damage whi...

[QUOTE=TLC8]You don't have to like Arum or GBP... but these two guys resolving their differences, they WILL make some great fights. Cotto-Bradley would be a war in the middle of the ring.
