Undefeated WBO Welterweight Champion and the pride of Palm Springs TIMOTHY "Desert Storm" BRADLEY, JR. will make the biggest defense of his world title when he faces Méxican icon and four-division world champion JUAN MANUEL "Dinamita" MARQUÉZ.
The only two fighters to defeat Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao in the last seven years, Bradley will be looking to further state his case as one of boxing’s elite pound for pound fighters while Márquez attempts to add yet another highlight to his storied career becoming the first Méxican fighter to win world titles in five different weight divisions.
Both enter this rumble fresh from Fight of the Year caliber performances.
"It is a complicated fight but not impossible to win. I want that fifth world title. Bradley is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. I think we have the styles to make a great fight." Said Maquez.
Whilst Bradley added;
"I know that the one thing he and I will have in common, stepping into that ring, is that we’re both warriors. Neither one of us will take defeat as an option and with that being said we can say the countdown has officially begun. October 12 will not just be another fight but a memorable fight for not only him and me but for the world of boxing."
