After Pacman, Bradley wants Marquez, Floyd
MANILA, Philippines – American boxer Timothy Bradley Jr. is already looking forward to what the future holds for his boxing career should he be successful against Filipino ring icon Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao in their much-awaited clash this June 9.
In what will be the most high-profile bout of his career to date, Bradley will challenge Pacquiao for the World Boxing Organization welterweight championship on June 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The undefeated boxer is extremely confident of victory, to the point where he has already printed promotional materials for a rematch, tentatively scheduled on November 10.
"Because there is a rematch clause in our fight contract, I will have to beat Manny Pacquiao again in November," Bradley said in a RingTV interview.
"After that, I look forward to matching myself with top fighters, like Juan Manuel Marquez, Floyd Mayweather," he added.
Bradley is an underdog against Pacquiao, who is considered as one of the top two pound-for-pound best boxers in the world along with Mayweather.
Even though the odds are against him, Bradley has not been shy in proclaiming that he will become the first man to beat Pacquiao since Erik Morales, who outpointed the Filipino idol in 2005.
"I feel that I have every attribute to beat him and to give him a lot of problems there," Bradley said in a recent interview.
Aside from a rematch with Pacquiao and bouts with Marquez and Mayweather, Bradley said he wants to fight "anyone my promotional team and manager believe will further my legacy as one of the best to ever step inside the ring."
Before he does that, however, Bradley will first have to beat Pacquiao when they meet on June 9, something he guarantees he will accomplish.
"Tune in on June 9, when I destroy Manny Pacquiao," he announced during a recent media workout. "I know at the end of the fight I will have my had raised. I am going to be the winner, plain and simple."
