Former two-division champion Tim Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KOs) was at a press conference this past Friday to support super lightweight prospect Edgar Martinez, who is managed by Bradley's wife Monica.
Bradley has been inactive for nearly a year since his April 2016 points loss to Manny Pacquiao in their rubbermatch.
It was Bradley's second fight with new trainer Teddy Atlas.
There has been a lot of speculation on who Bradley will face next. There were rumors of a potential showdown against former four-division champion Miguel Cotto (40-5, 33 KOs) late last year, but an actual fight hasn't came to fruition.
Bradley has remained very patient as he waits for the right fight.
"I am interested in any fight that makes sense. That is a fight that makes sense. A Cotto fight would be big but at the end of the day I say, 'yeah' but it's not up to me," he explained.
Cotto last fought in November 2015 when he lost an unanimous decision to Canelo Alvarez. He was scheduled to return to the ring last month as part of an HBO Pay-Per-View headliner in Texas, but his set opponent James Kirkland pulled out of the fight with an injury which canceled the whole event.
Cotto is looking to return in the coming months, with his team actively searching for a new opponent who is worthy enough for HBO to approve.
Bradley for the record, is still very interested in facing Cotto and has previously stated that he would be willing to meet the Puerto Rican at a catchweight between 147 and 154 pounds.
"I think it would be fun. I think it is a fight the fans wouldn't mind watching. 'Cotto if you are looking for a dance partner, holla baby. Let's go,'" Bradley stated.
