Bradley: I Have One Goal, To Beat and Retire Marquez!

WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley reflects on his March decision win over tough puncher Ruslan Provodnikov. Bradley was badly hurt several times in the fight, and dropped in the twelfth, but refused to go away and fought Provodnikov in a toe to toe fight to survive to the bell. Bradley won a very close unanimous decision. On October 12th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Bradley will defend his title against former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez.

QUESTION: Fighting with a concussion, you displayed tremendous courage and conviction against Provodnikov. Do you feel this determination and will is your strongest quality as a fighter? Or is there another specific quality you possess that Marquez will not be able to match?

BRADLEY: "I definitely agree that my will and determination is something which differentiates me from other fighters. I may not be the most skilled or most loved fighter, but I am a warrior and that cannot be taken from me.

"It will take a real smart fighter to ever beat me.  I have yet to meet that man in the ring. I have the insatiable  hunger and desire to win, to remain undefeated.

"Against Provodnikov, I went after him even though I was hurt.  I knew going in he would be a strong, tough, dangerous fighter but that didn't stop me from coming out throwing hard punches. In the third round he landed a very big, powerful punch.

"My corner was yelling at me to 'box, box, box!'  Once I started to box and it was a lot easier for me. Provodnikov felt my punches. His face was swollen when the fight was over. It takes a lot of hard punches to do that.

"Marquez is a late-bloomer who got better and better. He is a legend.  The greatest Mexican fighter of his era.  He has a great trainer in Nacho Beristain. But they will never stop my will to win. I will win because I have to win.  It's in my DNA. And I will be a bigger name because of my will to win.

"I have one goal - go into the ring, win and retire the great Juan Manuel Marquez."
