Bradley Open To Marquez and Provodnikov Rematches

By Ryan Burton

WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (31-0) recently agreed to face Manny Pacquiao on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.  The fight will be a rematch of Bradley's controversial split decision victory over Pacquiao that took place in June, 2012 at the same venue.

The undefeated two-division champion had a stellar 2013 campaign that included wins over hard hitting Ruslan Provodnikov and future Hall of Famer Juan Manuel Marquez.  The victory over Provodnikov was so good that it won Fight of the Year honors from most boxing publications. 

Bradley said that all of his focus is on Pacquiao and the task at hand but that he would have absolutely no problem facing Marquez or Provodnikov again in the future.  Both fighters have clamored for rematches and Bradley said that if the fights make sense that he would love to face both of them again.

"Well, I am focused on Manny Pacquiao. That is who I am looking at and he is who I have coming up but yeah if I look into the future I would fight Marquez again. He is a legend and if that fight presented itself and it made sense then why not? We could do it again.

I would fight Ruslan too.  I will fight anybody, man.  If that fight makes sense then I would do it again.  See there are a lot of great fights for me out there.  I have this rematch with Pacquiao coming up and I am concentrating on winning this fight decisively.  When the fight is over we will see what is out there.  I have fought the best out there so I have no problem fighting anybody," Bradley told BoxingScene.com.

A few myths are going around these forums..The first one is that GBP has the better fighters..Wrong..TR has two(Manny and Juan)atg fighting in the WW div,GBP does not even have one(remember,Mayweather is not signed to GBP)..Not to mention I think…

[QUOTE=The Big Dunn;14189492]Its very bizarre to read this. why is Braadley focusing on rematches with guys he beat. why isn't he trying to continue to climb the ladder and/or get in there with fighters who are better than these guys…
