Former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) is hoping referee Robert Byrd will ensure that WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) is not using his head next Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Well before their match was finalized, Marquez and his trainer, Nacho Beristain, said Bradley would often use his head against opponents.

"I always do my job in the ring, I always prepare to do anything I can to find my way to victory. The preparation has been pretty good, we've been more focused on speed rather than strength, an important point for Oct. 12. I've prepared for everything, I have sparring partners who box, who are fast, pushing forward. We have all of the necessary styles here in camp," Marquez said.

"Bradley will want to box and change his style as he goes through the rounds, but we are used to that. I'm not worried at all about anything. If I start caring about the judges then I start thinking about defeat - and we are only thinking about victory."

"He is a crafty fighter who uses his head, but it's the referee's job to [warn him and hand out penalities]. I'm focused on what I have to do in the ring. I have to be strong, work the speed, use intelligence, use my legs. The fight is a challenge, but not impossible."

[QUOTE=Rapid Counter]Bradley is not a dirty fighter[/QUOTE]That's my take. He may lead with his head at times but I look for intention and he doesn't land deliberate low blows or hit after the bell or behind the head or kidney punches. The intent really is not there for anyone to say he is a dir...

Marquez: "Keep yo eye on the dome, ref. Keep - yo - eye - on - the - dome."

[QUOTE=whitealltrac]Easy fight for Bradley, just outbox and use the ring = game over for Marquez! But.....big head Bradley is gonna want to trade because he wants to prove a point and that may make the fight go to Marquez. I hope he listens to his corner this time and stays outside just like...
