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…

We better pray Casamayor beats Bradley, otherwise Pacquiao vs Mayweather won't happen next.

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....

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…

If anything it's the other way around, Casa should be worrying about Timmy's head!
