Tim Bradley Has Interest in Cotto Fight, Says Trainer

Former two division world champion Timothy Bradley (31-1, 12KOs) is interested in the possibility of facing Puerto Rico superstar Miguel Cotto, according to Bradley's trainer Joel Diaz.

Bradley lost the first pro fight of his career back in April, when he dropped a twelve round unanimous decision in his rematch with Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has mentioned the possibility of having Bradley face Cotto at a catch-weight of 155-pounds, which allows Cotto to defend the WBC middleweight title which he captured last month from Sergio Martinez.

While Arum has mentioned the fight in several interviews, Diaz says there haven't been any serious discussions to make it happen, which Cotto's camp also confirmed last week.

"We think that this is a good fight, it would be a good opportunity. We know that Cotto is strong, intelligent, and he did very well against Martinez. We talked about a fight at 155-pounds and that is a lot of weight, but it is a good opportunity," said Diaz.

"At the moment [any talk of Cotto-Bradley] is just words. Bradley is going to therapy and if everything goes well with his leg he will probably return to the gym in August. I don't really know if there is [a real possibility] to fight Cotto, but it would be a big opportunity and there are very few of those."

Cotto-Golovkin! Bill it 'Freight Train Collision' but Cotto would never do that to prove himself like Floyd tested himself against Canelo.:boxing:

Aex-talented Bradley sell his ezz for money. There should be a prostitution clause in Pimp Arum's contracts. And I thought Bradley was smart.....:boxing:
