Mayweather vs Bradley is Our Target, Says Gary Shaw
By Ryan Burton
Silverdome, Pontiac, Michigan - BoxingScene.com caught up with promoter Gary Shaw to get his thoughts on who he would like to see his fighter, WBO/WBC junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, fight next. Bradley won a technical ten round decision over division rival Devon Alexander to unify their respective titles.
"Without question we want Floyd Mayweather next," Shaw revealed to BoxingScene.com.
When asked about a match-up between Bradley and WBO welterweight king Manny Pacquiao - Shaw said, "[Top Rank CEO Bob] Arum only makes in-house fights so that fight won't happen. All of Manny's fights are in-house."
Shaw doesn't have a time table for Bradley's return to the ring but he said he planned on meeting with HBO's bigwigs Ross Greenburg and Kery Davis next week.
