A few weeks ago former 140 and 147 pound champion Tim Bradley was mentioned as a possible opponent for newly crowned WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto.

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with Bradley's trainer Joel Diaz to get his take on the possible match up.

"Tim is not a tall guy but if you go back to the end of his amateur career he was fighting at 152," said Diaz. "Timmy isn't a big fighter but Miguel Cotto isn't either. With that being the case, we will take the fight. Miguel Cotto is a very strong fighter. He has a devastating left hook."

When Cotto captured the middleweight title, he stopped Sergio Martinez in a fight that was fought at a 159 pound catchweight. Cotto and Bradley both began their pro careers as junior welterweights which is one of the reasons why Diaz isn't worried about the jump up in weight for Bradley.

"At one point of his career he was at 140 pounds and moved up to 147 pounds and then 154 and then moved to 160 but he didn't even make the weight. He weighed 155 which says a lot. Miguel Cotto is not a big fighter but he is a strong fighter," Diaz explained.

Diaz feels that Bradley's speed and defense would be the key to beating a four division champion like Miguel Cotto.

"We would take that fight because of Tim's ability to move, he is so hard to hit. Styles make fights and I think that would be a great fight," Diaz told BoxigScene.com.

[QUOTE=SUBZER0ED]Cotto is a MW champion. If he fights anyone, it should definitely be a MW, fighting for his belt. To fight Bradley doesn't necessarily raise Cotto's stock, he's already there. Bradley needs Cotto to validate himself after the Pacquiao loss, but he's not a MW. The Martinez we saw ...

[QUOTE=KnickTillDeaTh]I think your assessment is wrong I believe most want to the see the fight as long as its not for the middleweight title. This match up was discussed some time ago before Cotto moved to middleweight and is a good in between fight (not for the middleweight title) leading to Co...
