MANILA, Philippines – Timothy Bradley is starting to get impatient while waiting for Manny Pacquiao to decide who he would fight for his November 10 bout.

Bradley, one of the candidate opponents for Pacquiao’s next fight, said he hopes the fighting congressman would make up his mind soon.

“Are we going to get it on? If not, tell me now so I can move on,” Bradley told My Desert. “I'm ready to move on. If we're not going to do it, say ‘Bradley it's not you. I don't want to fight you.'”

Bradley wrested the World Boxing Organization welterweight title from Pacquiao via a controversial split decision last June. But he hopes to get another go at the eight-division champion to prove that his victory was no fluke.

“To be honest with you, I think a lot of people on that side are scared,” said Bradley.

The unbeaten American boxer said he wasn’t even 100% when he hammered out the win over Pacquiao as he injured both of his feet, while slugging it out with the Filipino in the ring.

“At the end of the day, I'm 29-0, undefeated and I wasn't even 100 percent,” Bradley said.

“That's crazy how he said he's going to stop me and knock me out when he didn't, he couldn't and he won't do it. If you don't like it, someone can shut me up and that should be Manny.”

Other boxers in consideration for Pacquiao are Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez and Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto.

Pacquiao has already fought Marquez thrice and has a two win and one draw record against the Mexican counter puncher.

Cotto, meanwhile, lost via 12th round technical knockout to Pacquiao in 2009.
