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.

Bradley isn't sharp enough to beat Floyd... I don't think there's enough money in the fight to interest Floyd either...
