Bradley on Pacquiao Rematch; F*** It, Let's Go To War!

By Ryan Burton

WBO welterweight champion Tim "Desert Storm" Bradley (29-0, 12KOs) has kept a low profile over the past month as he waits for Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) to make a decision on his next HBO pay-per-view opponent. The Filipino fighter is slated to return to the ring on November 10th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and he's still mulling over a rematch with Bradley in addition to a fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez and a rematch with Miguel Cotto.   

Back in June, Pacquiao said that he wanted to exercise his rematch option immediately after his controversial majority decision loss to Bradley.  The Southern California native hopes that Pacquiao doesn't change his mind so that he can prove to the world that he is the better of the two fighters.  

Bradley also knows that the fight will be under the microscope of the media due to the first fight's controversial nature and that there will be more pressure on him to win in a convincing fashion.

"No doubt.  F*** it.  Let's go to war for the viewers," Bradley told BoxingScene.com

Bradley feels that a clear cut victory over Manny Pacquiao this time around will lead him right into another mega-fight. This time versus Floyd Mayweather Jr. 

"A fight versus Floyd could happen.  I just have to school Pac this time to make it happen," Bradley stated.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has told various news outlets, including BoxingScene, that he is open to working with rapper turned boxing promoter 50 Cent so a future Mayweather-Bradley fight appears to be possible.

Tim Bradley ended up in a wheelchair not because it was an accident but because he couldn't handle any sh*t. He's darn lucky he didn't get KTFO, he should thank his lousy ankles for saving him. The more you guys…

[QUOTE=ADP02;12435104]So used Lederman to make a point but now you say he had horrible scoring and the judges were good .... bias there? Judges were not too convinced that Bradley won as they were all over the place with their…
