Bradley: "I'll Be The First Man To Beat Floyd Mayweather"

By Lem Satterfield

WBC/WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (27-0, 11 KOs) is ready to challenge the big names. Last Saturday at the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, Bradley won a ten round technical decision over Devon Alexander (21-1, 13 KOs).

Several possibilities are on the table for Bradley's next fight, including the prospect of facing six-time titlist Floyd Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs). Bradley has thought about fighting Mayweather for quite a while and rehearsed the outcome in his mind.

"I'll fight any of them. I would like to fight Floyd Mayweather or Manny [Pacquiao]. I think that I've proven tonight that I'm a force to be reckoned with. I proved that I'm the best 140-pounder in the world. This is just one step closer," said Bradley.

"I see that I'll be the first man to beat Mayweather. Mayweather is the king of boxing right now, but it will be a tough fight. That guy's clever. He'll stay on the outside. But eventually, he'll start coming to me -- bringing the pressure, trying to bang my body, trying to outwit me with his smarts. I think that's how it will go."

If there is no Mayweather, or Manny Pacquiao, then Bradley would like to fight either WBA king Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KOs) of England, Marcos Rene Maidana (29-2, 27 KOs) of Argentina, or another big name at 140-pounds.

"I think that I've got to take out Amir Khan next, and then, there will be no doubt who the best 140-pounder in the world is. But I would love to fight all of them," said Bradley. "I would love to fight Maidana. [WBO and WBA lightweight (135 pounds) champion] Juan Manuel Marquez. These are all great fights."

Timmah would have no chance to beat Floyd. He couldn't use that battering ram head to end the fight in stoppage because he couldn't find Floyd. I like Timmah but he needs to concentrate being the best in Jr WW.…
