Bradley: Beating Marquez Will Put Me in The Hall of Fame

By Ryan Burton

Last week Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley appeared on BoxingScene Radio to talk about his October 12th showdown against four-division champion Juan Manuel Marquez. Bradley had a more lucrative offer on the table to face Manny Pacquiao but told us that he feels facing Marquez is a bigger fight.

"Absolutely.  I never back down from the best.  I always want to fight the best," stated Bradley.

"Marquez is definitely one of the best fighters in the world.  Top three without a doubt.  I just thought it would be perfect to have a guy like Marquez on my resume.  If I beat Marquez then I think I definitely belong in the Hall of Fame and am one of the top fighters in the world."

The Palm Springs, CA based fighter feels that his speed and boxing ability will be the keys to lead him to victory. He thinks that Marquez benefited from being familiar with Pacquiao and pointed out that he won't have that advantage when they step in the ring.

"My boxing ability (is a key).  He knows Pacquiao because he fought him 4 times. He knows him very well.  He doesn't know anything about me.  I've never fought him or sparred him.  I think my speed will be a big factor too.  There are a lot of different things that I bring.  I know a lot of people say he's the best counter puncher and this and that but I always rise to the occasion and step my game up," Bradley told us on BoxingScene Radio.

Marquez has had a lot of success against fighters that come straight at him.  Bradley said that Floyd Mayweather showed that movement and a strong jab can beat the Mexican tactician. 

"He stepped in the ring with Floyd Mayweather and he lost.  Mayweather made him miss and used his jab. Pacquiao came straight forward at him and didn't box him," explained Bradley.

[QUOTE=Ganondorf;13605918]Nobody is saying that. What they are saying, and rightfully so, is that Floyd Mayweather is a great fighter regardless of whether or not he fought Marquez. And what they appear to also be saying is that if Bradley beats…

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;13605768]Mayweather is a better fighter than Marquez and was considered so, and that fight was Marquez's first foray at welterweight. Bradley is not considered a better fighter than Marquez, and is fighting him coming off knocking out Manny lumping Pacquiao.…
