Bradley: The End of an Era, For Marquez, is Coming!

WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is counting down the days until his second defense of his world world title, on Saturday night against former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. HBO Pay-Per-View will televise the event.

What can we expect on Oct. 12? Why do you feel you will beat Marquez?

Marquez: Juan Manuel Márquez took this fight because I have something he wants. My world championship title belt.  I am all that stands between him and history.  He wants to become México's first champion to win world titles in five different weight division.

He wants that and I want something else. I want to beat Márquez to heighten my legacy in boxing.  This fight is my date with destiny.

I will win and do it so well on October 12 that Márquez's fans will become my fans.

Everyone in the world thinks of Márquez and what he did to Manny Pacquiao in their last fight.

But it was the fourth time they fought. Márquez figured him out. He finally got the big win.  Perhaps even his career-defining win.

I am a different kind of fighter. I come to win. I never think of losing, it never crosses my mind. Márquez doesn't know what to expect from me inside the ring. Like, for  example, my quick in-ring adjustments while fighting my opponents.  Like a quarterback, I am capable of calling and executing audibles when I need to adapt to what I am seeing.

Age will indeed be a factor. This is a young man's game. Speed kills. So does quick footwork. I am faster and quicker and he won't be sure what direction I'll be coming from or what I'm going to be doing.  And as I showed with Ruslan Provodnikov, I have the will to win.  I cannot lose.  I will not lose. I will never give up my belt.

I always wanted to fight Márquez.  He is a great champion, a good family man and a credit to boxing and to México. I have nothing bad to say about him.
But October 12, at Thomas & Mack, will be my night.  The end of an era for Márquez.

This is my time.

Bradley is a good fighter but I think the big stage changes him a little and his best doesn't come out. I felt like this after the Pacquiao fight. Marquez has done the impossible more than once and is a…
