Bradley: Nacho Stop Making Excuses, I'll Beat Marquez!

By Ryan Burton

On Friday ran articles in which Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) and Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) both expressed interest in facing each other in the event that neither fighter wins the lucrative Manny Pacquiao sweepstakes.

Earlier today in an article by BoxingScene's Miguel Rivera ( that can be found here ),  Marquez's legendary trainer Nacho Beristain called him a dirty fighter. The Hall-of-Fame Mexican trainer labeled Bradley's tendency to lead with his head a dirty tactic.

"[Bradley] is a very dirty, slick fighter. He has injured several opponents with his head," Nacho said.

BoxingScene reached out to Bradley to get his reaction to Marquez's accusations.

"Excuses are like **sholes and you know that everyone of us has one so stop selling wolf tickets," Bradley told "Nacho knows I would slap his best fighter around.  At 140 pounds I'm the best fighter out there."
