WBO Welterweight champion Timothy Bradley was in attendance at the Mandalay Bay this past Saturday night to witness a great war provided by Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado. Within a span of three weeks, fight fans have been treated to two Fight of the Year candidates with the possibility of the four fighters involved in those fights possibly facing each other next.

Bradley spoke to several members of the media after the fight and besides being in awe like most of us at ringside; he also shared what surprised him the most about both guys after fighting a 12 round battle.

“Just the stamina. The stamina those guys have. The will they have. Rios, he never quit man. He never stopped and neither did Mike. He just kept coming and coming and Mike adjusted in the ring. He got caught early and he got hurt and he just made adjustments. And Rios didn't really make an adjustment. I saw one adjustment that he made; he stopped getting hit with the overhand right and started taking it away and started blocking that left side. That was one adjustment that I saw but for the most part he just comes forward, comes forward and applies so much pressure on you man that he doesn't allow you to breathe in there” shared Bradley.

While Golden Boy may appear to have a strong hold on the 140 and 147 divisions, Top Rank has 6 fighters in their stable that could all be mixed and matched. Juan Manuel Marquez, Manny Pacquiao, Timothy Bradley, Ruslan Provodnikov, Brandon Rios and now interim WBO Welterweight champion Mike Alvarado.

Bradley was asked about potential future opponents and he said he’s willing to take on any of the aforementioned fighters and is ready whenever the opportunities are presented to him.

“I mean I'm interested in any fights that make sense to boxing, for boxing [and] for everybody involved. Top Rank, if that's something they want to do, Cameron Dunkin if that's something he wants to do, I'll entertain any of those matches” said Bradley.

“I've always had options man. I mean a lot of people didn't believe I had options but I always had them. Top Rank are my promoters and they're here to promote me. I gotta fight somebody! I gotta fight somebody so they're here working and we're working together. It's their job to promote me and that's what they're doing and it’s my job to get in there and fight.”

Bradley was well received by the crowd at the Rios-Alvarado rematch. He admitted to feeling vindicated after being haunted by constant criticism and backlash over his controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao last June. With his own Fight of the Year candidate fight under his belt already, Bradley indeed looks to have restored his image with the boxing public.
