Marquez's Trainer: Timothy Bradley is a Very Dirty Fighter
By Miguel Rivera
During the last few days on BoxingScene.com, both Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) and Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) have discussed their interest in a possible future fight. Marquez, the WBA/WBO lightweight champion, is trying to get a fourth fight against WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. If Pacquiao is unavailable, Marquez is interested in a possible fight against WBO 140-pound champion Bradley - who also wants the fight.
Hall-of-Fame trainer Nacho Beristain was asked for his opinion on Bradley as a possible opponent. Like some of Bradley's past opponents, Nacho voiced a familar concern. He worries about Bradley's past issues with accidental head clashes - although some opponents have made allegations that Bradley uses his head intentionally.
After reviewing fights, Nacho felt the California fighter was coming on the inside too much with his head.
"[Bradley] is a very dirty, slick fighter. He has injured several opponents with his head," Nacho said.

At this point, I think that all of Bradley's potential opponents try to use the headbutting issues to get into his head. When a person is constantly accused of doing something dirty, it gets into some fighters head and they…Comment by jvsnypes on 01-01-2012
