Tim Bradley, Rigondeaux Double in Play For February 23

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley's return is likely to take place on February 23rd in a fight televised by HBO. Andre Ward's fight against Kelly Pavlik was rescheduled to that date but it is likely that the fight will be pushed back again to March.

Bradley doesn't have an opponent locked in but Lamont Peterson is one name being mentioned. Top Rank had originally tried to make that fight in December.  Bradley holds a unanimous decision victory over Peterson.

BoxingScene has also been advised that WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux may appear in the co-featured bout. Rigondeaux of course was scheduled to face Poosawat Kratingdaenggym tomorrow night but the fight fell out when the Thai boxer failed his blood tests.

[QUOTE=tlarry;12817541]Bradley held out for the Pacquiao payday; he knew he couldn't beat Manny and he didn't. Maidana has made himself more than available, and Bradley runs the other way.[/QUOTE] You must have forgot that Maidana ducked the Bradley fight, he…
