Beats a not very good 33 year old Junior Witter...who got a gift against Kotelnik.
Beats Edner Cherry who can't punch and had previously lost 4 times.
Knocked down twice by Kendall Holt even though he only has a 46% KO ratio. Plus he had lost to the great Torres, and Davis.
NC'd a blown up and old lightweight in Campbell, and could only do that because Campbell got cut.
We can all make peoples resumes look bad. And in my opinion Timothy Bradley is a damn good fighter.
Bradleys resume is much better than Khans as it stands. Bradley was a big underdog in the Witter fight and he won comfortably and knocked him down. Cherry is not world class but the dude is good enough to hang with some of the best, hes better than Salita is.
Holt has been able to put down so good fighters, he has serious power. His finishing is god awful though. He put Diaz down and it took Pacquiao 9 before he could get him to the matt, but even though Diaz was visibly hurt Holt didn't turn up the heat. He does this he fights in spots. Bradley had excellent recovery skills in the Holt fight which is the only time during his extensive AM and Pro career that hes been down.
Granted he beats Peterson he'll have beaten another good fighter who was hyped as the next big prospect at 140 now that Ortiz has lost. Campbell quit, but w/e can't complain. Bradley was beating him in the fight before the TKO/NC. In the space of two years Bradley won two belts at 140 beat Witter, Holt and Cherry then faced Campbell and got a NC. It's and good resume for a champion so young.
