Bradley Wants All of The Big Fights at 147, or Cotto at 154

By Mark Vester

WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is ready for all of the big fights at welterweight, including WBC champion Andre Berto, WBO champion Manny Pacquiao or Shane Mosley.

Bradley makes his welterweight debut on July 17 against Carlos Abregu. He is not against fighting any of the big names at 140 either, including Amir Khan, Devon Alexander or Victor Ortiz. After Abregu, his direction depends on the biggest financial opportunity on the table.

"I want all of those fights. I want every last one of those guys. It just has to be right. People think I'm ducking Devon Alexander, I'm not ducking anybody," Bradley said.

"We been trying to get at Khan for while. My promoter was in negotiations with Golden Boy and then phone went dead."

Bradley, and his promoter Gary Shaw are very open to a move to 154-pounds to fight WBA champion Miguel Cotto, who is a small junior middleweight and a former champion at 140. Bradley is right now working his way down to 147 after his weight shot up to a muscular looking 160-plus.

"I hope this will launch me to a big fight [at 147]. If that doesn't happen, I will just keep fighting and continue to win. I think I'll be a lot faster and a lot faster at this weight," Bradley said.

Shaw likes the sound of a Cotto clash at 154-pounds.

"I would make that fight," said an excited Shaw.

I'm sure there are a lot of people that want a piece of Cotto these days, now that he has a title at 154.

I'm really disappointed in him not fighting devon.

I don't think he's serious. BRADLEY will become a punching BAG @ 147. He's not ebating any of the top fighters in that weight class. He doesn't have the power or ring smarts to compete there.
