Bradley: If Golovkin Knocks Out Jacobs - Then Bring on Canelo

By Ryan Burton

Former super lightweight and welterweight champion Tim Bradley (33-2-1) was in Las Vegas this past weekend to work the Manny Pacquiao versus Jessie Vargas pay-per-view fight.  Bradley provided expert analysis on the broadcast that also featured Brian Kenny and Stephen A. Smith.

The 33-year-old Bradley spoke to BoxingScene.com and other members of the media about a variety of topics including the Canelo Alvarez versus Gennady Golovkin saga. The fight has been negotiated for several months and is tentatively set for September, 2017.

Bradley feels that Golovkin should beef up his resume so that he can negotiate from a position of more power and feels that a fight against WBA "regular" middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs would be the perfect opponent.

Golovkin, who holds the WBA "super" middleweight title (along with the WBC/IBF/IBO titles), has his team currently negotiating with Jacob's team for a fight that would take place during the first quarter of 2017.

"I think Danny Jacobs will be a great test for Triple G because of his style. We want to see if Triple G can deal with that type of style, that movement, that boxing style that Danny Jacobs can bring to the ring. A guy with more dimensions and then (if he beats Jacobs) - hey, why not? Then in 2017 he can get a couple more fights in and then fight (Canelo) and get more money too," Bradley told BoxingScene.com.

Bradley believes that Golovkin slightly struggled with Kell Brook's movement during his September knockout victory and wants to see how he does against a naturally bigger fighter with good speed and boxing ability.

"Did you see the style and how it was a little difficult for Triple G? Did you see the boxing type of style that gave him some fits? That is why the Danny Jacobs fight makes sense. If he knocks out Danny Jacobs then Canelo let's go. Then it is time," Bradley reasoned.

[QUOTE=taste;17190667]What? :thinking: The offer was made last month right (Oct)? That's 6-7 months to promote a fight. The hand was only supposed to take 6 weeks, so I don't get your statement. What's wrong with May 5th? I criticize GGG…

[QUOTE=kafkod;17189903]Get it done? [B]Even if GGG accepts Oscar's first offer, Canelo won't fight him till Sept 2017.[/B] That's plenty of time to negotiate a deal, so why criticise GGG for not accepting a flat fee offer, when he thinks he…
