Arum Pondering Miguel Cotto vs. Timothy Bradley Next

by David P. Greisman

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=TLC8;14634410]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. I'm thrilled with Arum and Oscar working together…
