Roach on Bradley-Marquez: Not Interesting, Who Cares

By Edward Chaykovsky

Trainer Freddie Roach is not excited by the welterweight match between WBO champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) and former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs).

Both fighters defeated Roach's prized pupil, Manny Pacquiao, in 2012. Bradley won a controversial split decision last June and Marquez knocked Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round in December.

Offers were made to both boxers. They passed and struck a deal to face each other on September 14th. Pacquiao will take on Brandon Rios on November 24th.

"[Bradley] and Marquez had a good deal together or something like that, but I don't really see that fight as being too interesting, because who really cares who wins that fight," Roach told Koncrete Jungle.

Marpedz will be looking to counter, Bradley will too busy watching out for the heavyweight punching power to be offensive = BORING fight, Roach is right.

He's lying. I bet Roach is just trembling from anticipation.
