Bradley Praises Crawford, Says Rios-Alvarado is 50-50
By Ryan Burton
WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley will be ringside for Saturday's rematch between Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado. The first Rios-Alvarado clash was one of the top Fight of the Year candidates of 2012.
The rematch will likely be a candidate for 2013 FOTY honors along with Bradley's scintillating March 16th victory over Ruslan Provodnikov. Bradley appeared on this week's edition of BoxingScene Radio and gave his assessment of the upcoming fight.
"I like Rios a lot. If Alvarado boxes a little bit he can make it an interesting fight. I really don't know who will win. Alvarado's a dog. He's kinda like me. It should be a great fight. Whoever executes there game plan should win," Bradley explained.
Promising prospect Terence Crawford opens up the HBO broadcast against the hard hitting Colombian Breidis Prescott. Crawford took the fight on short notice after Prescott's scheduled opponent, Khabib Allakhverdiev pulled out of the fight with an injury.
Bradley had previously sparred with Crawford and had nothing but praise for the 25-year-old Nebraska native.
"Crawford is a beast. He's going to be a world champion one day. Let me tell you this, if he fought for a world title right now he would win. I sparred 12 hard rounds with him. He's a tough dude. He's great fighter," Bradley told us on BoxingScene Radio.
