Robert Garcia Hopes Rios Lands Tim Bradley Shot

By Miguel Rivera

Robert Garcia, who trains Brandon Rios (33-2-1, 24KOs), is hoping the fight discussed fight with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (32-1-1, 12KOs) comes off for the fall.

Their mutual promoter of both boxers, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, is trying to make a deal that financially works for HBO, who spent the bulk of their budget in the first six months of the year.

Arum hopes to make the fight in November or even in December, on the 12th of that month, at the Forum in Los Angeles, California.

"The most important thing is that there is interest, and they spoke with Brandon Rios, and they spoke with Tim Bradley, the two already said they are willing to negotiate and right now there is nothing more that we can do but wait to reach a financial agreement and for the promoter to give us the green light," Garcia told ESPN Deportes.

"I think there shouldn't be a problem to get the fight together, the two of them are known fighters who like to put on a show."
