Reigning WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley seems to be enjoying a rejuvenated boxing career after a resounding victory against Brandon Rios early this month.
“Desert Storm” scored a ninth round finish over the gritty Rios, solidifying his status as a 147-pound world champion.
Bradley, who is now under the tutelage of Mike Tyson trainer Teddy Atlas, recently spoke about his recent win and what he sees himself doing next. The 32-year old boxer says he is eyeing for a third fight against Manny Pacquiao, for the latter’s 66th and supposed final fight in April 2016.
Pacquiao and Bradley already faced each other twice, with the latter winning their first encounter in June 2012, and the former avenging the said loss in April 2014.
Interestingly, Top Rank Promotions chief Bob Arum recently announced that Pacquiao is also looking at the Bradley vs. Rios fight videos to help him make the final opponent choice.
So far, former sparring partner Amir Khan and world champion Terence Crawford are in the short list for Pacquiao’s opponents.
Watch the short clip below, where Bradley shares his thoughts on a possible trilogy against the first and only eight-division world champion.
