Tim Bradley Denies Foot Injury, Rejects Peterson Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

In a recent article on BoxingScene.com, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, and manager Cameron Dunkin, agreed that there was a good chance that WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley was not going to fight on an HBO televised date of December 15th in Miami, Florida.

Both Arum and Dunkin said Bradley was still feeling the affects of a lingering foot injury, which the boxer initially suffered during his decision win over Manny Pacquiao in June.

However, Bradley has now responded to Arum's comments in an interview with his local paper, The Desert Sun, and denied that he was suffering any type of injury. The boxer stated that while he's been training for the last couple of weeks without a problem - the real issue is the proposed fight with Lamont Peterson. Bradley, who decisioned Peterson in 2009, doesn't see any reason for a rematch. The undefeated boxer would rather wait for a bigger opportunity to come along.

“My foot is fine; I’ve been training for the past couple weeks,” Bradley told the paper. “There’s nothing wrong with my foot. I’ll be back getting my sexy back, my swag back and I’ll be ready for anyone they have.”

“Another thing I want people to know, and no disrespect to Peterson, but I’ve already been down that road. I think a rematch with him doesn’t make sense at all. I think that’s another thing people need to know and realize.”

“Coming off the big Pacquiao win, it’s not necessary to have a rematch with Peterson. I think he’s the only guy available to fight right now, so I’m willing to wait.”
