Bradley Not Worried About Casamayor's Rough Tactics
By Keith Idec
Timothy Bradley isn’t concerned about Joel Casamayor getting dirty during their fight Saturday night.
The crafty Cuban southpaw is a notorious rule-bender, but Bradley believes he is more than ready to respond appropriately if Casamayor does anything questionable in their 12-round fight for Bradley’s WBO junior welterweight title.
“I am rough in there, too,” Bradley said. “He is in there with a young lion, hungry for greatness. He can get rough all he wants because I have my tricks of the trade, also. We will talk to the referee [Vic Drakulich] in the pre-fight interview and let him know about his dirty tactics. We prepare for that in training. I know things he likes to do and we are prepared for it. He’s not going to sneak anything by me.”
Bradley (27-0, 11 KOs, 1 NC), of Palm Springs, Calif., and Miami’s Casamayor (38-5-1, 22 KOs) will square off in the co-featured fight of an HBO Pay-Per-View broadcast that’ll match Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs) against Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KOs) in the 12-round main event at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

There's gonna be a **** load of headbutts in this fight. Haven't seen Casa fight in a few years. I don't think he's going to go down easy so that means a lot of clinches on his part when Bradley…Comment by DoktorSleepless on 11-09-2011
We better pray Casamayor beats Bradley, otherwise Pacquiao vs Mayweather won't happen next.Comment by mshap on 11-09-2011
if Bradley can't easily handle Casamayor, he should be ashamed of himself -- be a man and go for the stoppage -- don't be so 'strategic' in there this time....Comment by Jayallday9 on 11-09-2011
I say it again, Floyd and Pac fight falls through, and even if they fight ( May will win), Manny will either retire to full time politics or fight Bradley in a passing of the torch fight, Bradley becomes Top…Comment by Joe2608 on 11-09-2011
If anything it's the other way around, Casa should be worrying about Timmy's head!Post a Comment/View More User Comments (13)
