BoxingScene.com was advised by Bob Arum, the CEO of Top Rank, that he's waiting for his lawyers to give him the green light before attempting to sign WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (27-0, 11KOs). Bradley has an ongoing legal battle with his former promoters, Gary Shaw and Thompson Boxing, but there could be a legal resolution in the near future. 

If the two sides reach a deal, then Bradley would likely make his Top Rank debut on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez pay-per-view on November 12 in Las Vegas. If the legal process continues to play out, then Bradley's return could get pushed to the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito undercard on December 3rd in New York City. Bradley has been on the shelf since January's technical decision win over Devon Alexander.

"We would affirmatively want to sign Bradley. When our attorneys give us the go-ahead, we will attempt to sign him. We're not going to do anything that our attorneys feel is questionable. That's how we operate. It's not a fear of a lawsuit, but I want our attorneys to feel comfortable that if a lawsuit comes that we're on the right side," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

Bradley is going to like being with Top Rank fighting on under cards and fighting a bunch of bums not fighting anybody good like Gamboa and Donaire have been doing it for years. Thats the reason Donaire was trying to go to Golden Boy to get the big money fights. Bob Arum is going to try to sell y...

Hard to think of a guy who has lost as much momentum as Bradley without actually losing a fight. He's gotta win a big fight to get his name back in the mix.
