thought he just stayed at WW since there's bigger names there
either way, it's looking like Rios is the most sensible fight for him
it can happen at either weight
1) Cause what else is there? Even if he's offered Mike Jones he will probably turn it down cause Bradley's after beating Pacquiao multiplied by 10 and will probably think he's too good to be fighting people like Mike Jones. I don't care what anyone says, a fight vs Gamboa would be a pretty exciting fight.
2) He hasn't said anything directly but the fact that he doesn't even wanna do a catchweight tells me he doesn't wanna go down. Why? Idk why. He never mentioned anything about struggling to make 140 or wanting to move up (not that I know of anyway). So doesn't he wanna fight at 140?
3) Chances are pretty high that Bradley beats Rios easily so Im not sure Arum would wanna do that. As hougigo pointed out, Rios is a long term investment and I don't think that's a chance Arum would wanna take it.

Say what you want but this is a pretty dangerous fight for Bradley IMO. Bradley isnt that much bigger than Gamboa either. Sure Gamboa looked like sh*t (compared to his other outings) vs Farenas but let's be real here, he put on 20 lbs overnight after a 15 month layoff. Who wouldn't be exhausted as f*ck? He still dominated the guy as he was supposed to, aside from the KD. Even after the KD he recovered the next round and came back again. You can take it as an excuse or whatever you want to take it as. Also add the fact that Bradley well be out the ring for almost a year by the time this fight happens (if it does) and it could be a recipe for disaster.
Idk that's just how I feel. I don't see as a huge mismatch like a lot of people are making it sound like.
